Our Wider Curriculum

In case you have missed it, click here for an explanation of our overarching approach to the curriculum, built on our Pensford Four Pillars.

We have re-designed our curriculum in order to improve its vibrancy and relevance for our children.  You can see the latest drafts of the curriculum documents by clicking on the subject areas below.  Teachers work on 'live' versions of these documents and we update them periodically on the website.  Please use the 'class pages' tab above to find the latest topic plan for your child's class.
