Curriculum Policy and Overviews
You can view our detailed Curriculum Policy here, which includes long term planning for every year group and an overview of all the subject areas taught at our school. Our Phase 1 & 2 curriculum (EY-Y3) is designed over a two-year rolling programme and Phase 3 over three years, so that phases can plan lessons together, share resources and mutually attend educational visits.
Termly curriculum overviews are provided here on our website for each phase so that you are aware of what your child will be studying in any given term, and you will find further information about the learning taking place in each classroom in the class newsletters that are sent home via ParentPay and published on each the classroom pages for each phase.
At Lord Deramore’s, we firmly believe that children’s primary school years should be filled with memorable experiences all linked to a rich, vibrant and creative curriculum. This passport provides an overview of the enriching experiences we promise to provide each child during their curriculum journey with us. We look forward to creating many happy memories together!
