At Thorney Close Primary School we offer a curriculum which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through the school. The school follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in both Nursery and Reception. From Year 1 onwards the school follows the National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2. Instead of teaching subjects in isolation, where possible we make connections between them to form topics. We aim to fully equip pupils with the skills needed to be independent, enthusiastic and motivated learners. To further enhance the children’s learning experiences, each class takes part in at least one visit out of school per term. This helps to ignite children’s interest and make their learning more meaningful. To further enhance learning experiences we also have visitors who come into school to work with the children, for example subject specific workshops.
