Aiming High to Excel and Exceed

Whole School Curriculum overview

As a school we follow the 2014 National Curriculum and cover the many subjects and topics as outlined in the statutory guidance. The National Curriculum only forms part of our whole school curriculum. Below is an image which sets out graphically other aspects and key areas of our whole school offer.

Our Curriculum - an Explanation


Robin Hood Primary School's curriculum reflects both statutory requirements and areas of learning we feel are important for the children. The Topic Grid (below) shows which topic Years 1 to 6 are studying each half-term. The topics are either History, Geography or Science based, and have an outcome to share with parents at the end of the half-term; such as an assembly, exhibition or item on the website. Each topic draws it's learning objectives from the Root and Branch documents (below). Roots are the skills that the children should be acquiring and practicing during the topic and Branches are the key areas of knowledge. In the Root and Branch documents key language is highlighted, to be taught and displayed in classes. Please also see below our Curriculum Policy which outlines the Curriculum Intent and Implementation of our Curriculum at Robin Hood Primary School.
