Learning is a change to long-term memory.
Our aims are to ensure that our children experience a wide breadth of study and have, by the end of each key stage, an ambitious body of knowledge within their long-term memory.
The development of our curriculum intention, and on to the curriculum content itself is one that has evolved over time. It continues to change as we see priorities shift with the local, national and world circumstances around pandemics, climate change and ever changing technology.

The knowledge progression we aim to implement in each subject can be found below. As stated these will continually evolve over time as the needs of our pupils change.

We use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds to develop phonics skills in school using the Big Cat Letters and Sounds Phonics Reading Scheme in Foundation 2 and Year 1 to reinforce these skills.
