The Government published the national curriculum (Pdf, 2.8mb) in 2014 which as a school we follow.
To ensure coverage of this curriculum we use an exciting and engaging cross-curricular scheme called Cornerstones, which allows children to become totally immersed in the topic of the term.
We have daily English and Maths learning which links with other areas of the curriculum.
At The Meadows we believe all children should experience a broad and balanced curriculum that fosters a lifelong love of learning.
The class pages will give you an overview of the year’s topics and details of the exciting learning opportunities taking place.
