Curriculum Overview

In this section you will find information about how the National Curriculum is delivered to our pupils


At Sherwell Valley we teach The National Curriculum through a programme of Learning Experiences which are designed to capture the children’s imagination and put their learning into a ‘real’ context. In some year groups children are taught in ability sets for some aspects of Mathematics and Literacy to realise their best learning potential.



Phonics and Reading Scheme.


In Key Stage 0, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 at our School it is our aim that every child becomes a fluent reader. 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.

"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."
