Whalley CE Primary School delivers a fun, relevant, stimulating and challenging curriculum for each and every child that attends our school. Our curriculum is organised to ensure that we provide children with all of the statutory requirements as set out by The National Curriculum (2014) as well as tailoring our curriculum to ensure that it is personalised and very well-suited to the needs of the children in our school. As a basis we follow the curriculum produced by Lancashire Professional Development Service. These materials are copyright and so cannot be published on the website but the themes and curriculum overviews for each class are available on the links below.
The Early Year’s Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the statutory standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.
It supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
There is a strong focus on the three prime areas which are most essential for children’s healthy development:
- communication and language;
- physical development
- personal, social and emotional development.
Learning in the specific areas of literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design build upon learning in the prime areas.
