Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum which can be found via the link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum.

We curriculum continues to develop to ensure that we meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and beyond in providing our pupils with a knowledge-rich education to ensure their success as they move into KS3.

At St Andrew’s we offer a broad, balanced and academically rigorous curriculum for all our learners. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught using the EYFS framework with an emphasis on developing key skills, knowledge and understanding through direct teaching and structured continuous provision. 
 
Our curriculum is designed with knowledge at its heart to ensure that children develop a strong vocabulary base and understanding of the world.  The curriculum promotes long-term learning and we believe that progress means knowing more and remembering more.  We have developed a curriculum built on current research regarding how memory works to ensure that children not only have access to 'the best that has been thought and said' but are taught this in a way that ensures children can remember the curriculum content in future years.
