EYFS follow the EYFS Curriculum. The formal National Curriculum begins in Key Stage 1: Years 1 and 2 and is further developed at Key Stage 2: Years 3,4,5 and 6.

In our school we teach topics for our creative curriculum. Teachers plan around the theme but take learning objectives from their year groups learning objectives.

Our topics are organised into year groups.
