The Curriculum at The Stonebridge School

At Stonebridge we aim to provide a stimulating school environment to ensure that all children achieve their full potential. However, the National Curriculum does not cover all the possible areas of learning. Our aim is to ensure that children have a range of experiences that are as wide as possible during their time at school. We endeavour to teach to the highest standards in ways that match each child’s own aptitude and ability. That means offering a curriculum that is broad, balanced and right for each child. Children are taught using a variety of methods, which include whole class teaching, group work and individual work. Teachers choose the most appropriate method depending on the nature of the subject and the needs of the children.
  
Children’s personal qualities are equally important, and we aim to help children to develop a sense of consideration and self-confidence so that they value themselves and their abilities and make a full contribution to the life of the school and prepare for adulthood. This is reflected in our School Values

 

All classes from Year 1 to Year 6 follow the National Curriculum which includes the subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, Geography, History, Music, Art, Physical Education and Religious Education.

Classes in our Nursery and Reception settings are in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They follow the Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage Setting the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five, which covers the 7 areas of learning and development; Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Art and Design. These areas are broken down into Early Years Outcomes which lead on to the Early Learning Goals. These areas of learning and development are taught mainly in units and sometimes as part of a cross-curricular topic.
