The Curriculum

We aim to provide a broad wellbalanced curriculum which meets the needs of each child according to their age, ability and aptitude. Planning follows the requirements of the National Curriculum and is shared by the whole staff to ensure appropriate continuity and progression as children move through the school. Whenever possible, we provide enriching experiences such as off-site visits, workshops and visiting experts to bring the curriculum to life.

Early Years Foundation Stage

The three prime areas of learning for reception children are: personal, social and emotional development; communication and language; and physical development. There are four specific areas: literacy; mathematics; understanding the world; and expressive arts and design. At Buckland we provide a rich, varied and motivating Early Years curriculum which gives the children an excellent start to school life.

Key Stage 1

In Years 1 and 2, which is called Key Stage 1, children cover the following subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Physical Education, Computing, Design Technology, Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship and Religious Education.

Key Stage 2

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 follow the curriculum for Key Stage 2 which consists of the same subjects as Key Stage 1 with the addition of French.
