The National Curriculum

The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

The National Curriculum sets out the minimum content for our curriculum. Please use the links below to find out what our children will be taught.

Follow this link  to the Department of Education website.

Please see the document for the Primary National Curriculum Parents Complete Guide.

Teaching Phonics at TPA

In our school we use a systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). Phonics at Tadcaster Primary Academy is taught in EYFS and KS1 through a discrete 20 minutes session every morning following the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised programme. This informs much of our teaching of reading, writing and spelling. If children require additional support as they move into Key Stage Two we deliver this using Little Wandle.

Please find our Phonics and Early Reading policy here: LS-Phonics-and-early-reading-policy- TPA

 

Our Curriculum Vision

We have established our own curriculum content based on the National Curriculum. We identified our curriculum vision for the pupils at Tadcaster Primary Academy and have explored the opportunities that we wanted to provide the pupils at our school.
