We believe that the curriculum is the totality of pupils’ learning experiences.

We meet statutory requirements by delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, National Curriculum and the locally agreed syllabus for Religious Education.

We localise this entitlement to provide a curriculum that meets the needs of our pupils and which is enriched by using the outdoor environment, the school and local community, off-site visits,  and visitors to the schools.

Our curriculum is firmly underpinned by our school values and our learning behaviours. We firmly believe in a curriculum that promotes the holistic development of the individual child, and place great value on Personal, Social, Emotional and Citizenship Education and the promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education in order to prepare children for the opportunities and responsibilities of life in today’s society.

Phonics and reading

At Luston Primary and Shobdon Primary we have daily phonics sessions in reception, Year 1 and Year 2. We use Read, Write, Inc as the core programme for delivering phonics teaching. We use a variety of multi-sensory approaches to make this a very interactive experience.
