At Sheepscombe Primary School our  intention is to provide a curriculum that will enthuse the children in our care whilst including them in the learning journey. We believe in the concept of lifelong learning and through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives.

National Curriculum changes and Life without Levels presentation to parents – December 2015

Life without levels -National Curriculum 2015 final

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expressions and knowledge.”
“Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.”
Albert Einstein, German born Physicist and Nobel Prize winner (1879-1955)
We aim to develop our values through the provision of the curriculum ensuring that they are  integral to our thinking.
Our theme -based curriculum is enriched through regular curriculum experiences blending a real life element into the learning. The children are involved in the planning and learning is always related back to the skills needed both in the present and in later life.  Our Motto – Learning for Life – encapsulates the concept that every individual is constantly learning throughout their lives.

We use Letters and Sounds as the driver to teach our phonics programme with resources from a range of providers used. We aim to work in small groups for our phonics teaching, grouped according to the needs of the children. The children are involved in activities that are active and engaging often taking home resources to support their learning enabling parents to feel involved in their child’s learning.


Our prospectus has detailed information about our curriculum  as well as the document below linking our learning to the new National Curriculum 2014.
