Curriculum Overview

You will find details of individual year content here.  Our curriculum has recently undergone a number of significant changes in line with the NEW curriculum.


Our Whole School Curriculum is defined by skills progression which builds on children's knowledge base from one year group to the next based on Year Group Expectations.    Teachers design lessons around these expectations which are lively, engaging and wherever possible include practical elements or active learning.


A number of our children are following an individual, more fluid curriculum designed around their own particular need at a pace more suited to their individual requirements. 


British Values are woven throughout our whole school curriculum and are rarely taught in isolation. 

Each Curriculum map is updated regularly on the class pages to ensure that we are keeping up with "what's hot and what's not!"

The best way to find out about our curriculum is to ask the children and look at each year group page where you will find lots of photographs showing you what's been going on.  The Parent's Information Booklets will also support you in understanding the Key Skills and Concepts which will enable all children to make smooth progress from one year to the next.

If you would like additional curriculum information we would be delighted to help.  Please contact the school office and speak to the Head Teacher, Subject Lead or Class Teacher.




Curriculum Overview

This document describes the key features and aims of the subjects that we teach at St Philip's including both core, Foundation Subjects and the arts. 

Parent's Information Booklets

This document sets out the areas of grammar covered in each year group across the school.

At St Philip's we believe that the role of subject leader is key to securing success for all our learners. We invest time and money into Continued Professional Development for all lead teachers.  Subject information is then cascaded to all staff during staff meetings, via separate training sessions for key staff or via INSET. If you would like additonal information about individual subjects you are very welcome to contact our Subject Leaders directly.
