Lower School Curriculum
Lower school currently delivers a topic based curriculum based on the EYFS framework. This is used in conjunction with PIVATS and P level objectives to ensure differentiation.
Engagement, motivation and thinking skills are at the heart of our curriculum in lower school and children are provided with opportunities for play and exploration, being active in their learning along with tasks which will develop creative and critical thinking. The EYFS framework now incorporates Prime and Specific areas.
The Prime Areas are:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development.
The Specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children to participate successfully in society and these include:
Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
