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.

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.
