Our Curriculum

At Christ the King, we offer a curriculum that is broad, balanced and relevant to the needs of our children. Central to all we do in school is the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, intellectual, physical and creative development of the children.

The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. A carefully balanced programme of teaching the National Curriculum subjects is maintained and we seek to deliver a creative programme of study.

Subjects delivered include English, Maths, Science, Computing, P.E., Geography, History, Music, Art, Design Technology, Primary Languages, Religious Education, PSHE (Personal Social Health) and Citizenship.

Subjects may be taught separately or as cross-curricular themes to individual, groups or whole classes of children. We have a long-term curriculum map in place to ensure that all the requirement of the National Curriculum are met through a three year scheme of work. The teachers in each Key Stage all plan and work closely together to ensure all our children receive a creative, variety and cross-circular curriculum.

In England, Reception age children work on a Foundation Stage curriculum and in years 1 and 2 they work within Key Stage 1 guidelines. In years 3, 4, 5 and 6 children work within Key Stage 2 guidelines. In each case the curriculum delivered will always be appropriate to the age and ability of the individual child.

Maths - At Christ the King we have both a maths and calculation policy which drives our teaching of the subject.  These policies are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they reflect current best practice teaching methods and national curriculum requirements.  These policies can be found below:

If you have any questions or would like further information regarding the teaching of Maths, please do not hesitate to contact our Subject Lead Miss Stephens or your childs class teacher.
