Curriculum Information

Our whole school curriculum is based upon the National Curriculum together with Religious Education, Personal and Social Education including Sex and Relationships Education, Health Education, Citizenship and Collective Worship.

All children are given the opportunity to continue and reinforce their learning outside school. This involves parents in supporting their children and sharing in the learning process. Homework activities are provided for each class.

Music is an important part of our school with emphasis placed upon listening, making and performing music. A part-time music teacher teaches music and singing across the school and leads a school ensemble. Instrumental lessons are available for interested pupils.

Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of the school and wider community. This incorporates involvement with the church, local and national charities and a strong twinning relationship with Katiri Primary School in Uganda. Residential visits form part of the curriculum for Years 5 and 6 and through our School Council all the children are involved in appropriate decision making within school.

The school believes that all children are entitled to access a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which is differentiated to meet individual needs. This includes programmes of support for children with Special Educational Needs as well as opportunities for extension and challenge. The school’s Inclusion Manager liaises closely with staff and parents to ensure all pupil needs are met and that every child has the chance to shine.

For further information on individual class topics please look in the relevant class page.

Phonics at Compton All Saints’

The school has devised its own curriculum for teaching phonics based on the government scheme, ‘Letters and Sounds’. All children in Key Stage One have four, fifteen minute phonics sessions each week. The children are taught in small groups by teachers and learning support staff. As the children progress through the curriculum they build up knowledge and skills necessary for reading, spelling and writing. They are assessed regularly to check progress. At the end of Year 1 they are tested using the national phonics screening programme.
