At Castor Church of England Primary School, we follow the EYFS Statutory Framework and refer to the Development Matters and Early Years Outcomes guidance to support us in implementing the statutory requirements. In Years 1 - 6, we follow the National Curriculum (2014).
We follow the 'Letters and Sounds' document for our systematic approach to phonics. Please see the Reception Class page for more information. We use fully decodable books from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme called 'Floppy's Phonics' for the Reception and Year 1 children.
We place a strong emphasis on Reading, Writing and Maths, and deliver our wider curriculum through a thematic approach, creating cross-curricular links where possible.
Please see the documents below for an overview of the curriculum in each year group.
