Our curriculum

Curriculum drivers

We have four main curriculum drivers and these underpin our approach to delivering our curriculum.

Curriculum maps

At Home Farm all teaching staff use curriculum maps to plan and describe what they will be teaching during the course of the year. Our curriculum maps show the key content that classes will cover. The maps are not static – they are sometimes revised in year to respond to the needs and interests of a particular class. You can view our curriculum maps for the school year beginning September 2015 below.   Please ask your child’s class teacher or contact the school if there is anything you don’t understand or if you would like additional information.

You can see summaries which illustrate the main topics covered by each class here.

Supporting your child with phonics

At Home Farm we use a six-phase programme called 'Letters and Sounds' designed to help to teach children to read and spell with phonics. You can find more information and some practical help in this information leaflet. 

Our policy on sex and relationships education (SRE)

Our school's policy on sex and relationships education is based on the Department for Education guidance, which states that sex and relationship education is "learning about physical, moral, and emotional development".  The guidance states that SRE is about "understanding the importance of marriage for family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care.  It is also about the teaching of sex, sexuality and sexual health".  We teach SRE as part of our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSCHE) curriculum and in the context of our school's aims and values.

You can read a copy of our policy on sex and relationships education here.

You may also like to take a look at the overview of elements of our SRE scheme of work for each year group, and at the detailed overview of our PSCHE curriculum for each year group.  You can find these overviews below.  If there is anything you are not sure about, please ask your child's class teacher.
