National Curriculum

We are currently (Autumn, 2019) updating the way we deliver the National Curriculum to our pupils. The new content will be available on our new School website later in the year.

Phonics and Reading Scheme.

In Key Stage 0, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 at our School it is our aim that the majority of children become fluent readers. For this reason we teach phonics through ‘Read, Write Inc.’. This programme is systematic, structured and rooted in synthetic phonics, ensuring children read fluently by the age of 7. To find out more about the Read Write Inc Programme used at Sherwell Valley click here (pdf), or alternatively, visit this website: Read Write Inc

"Teaching and support staff assess children's progress frequently and accurately. Children are keen to learn, are able to make progress in all other areas of learning and are able to share their thoughts and ideas. A wide range of stimulating activities, indoors and outdoors, engage and interest children."
