We are currently updating our curriculum pages.
The Curriculum at Piddle Valley


All classes use a mixture of teaching styles and techniques during the week in a variety of groupings – whole class, ability groups, mixed ability groups, paired working.

Children are taught daily lessons of English/Literacy and Mathematics/Numeracy where the level of work is tailored to individual ability. A broad and balanced curriculum is planned and taught in a happy and stimulating environment in accordance with the National Curriculum requirements.

Independent and collaborative skills are encouraged in all year groups and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is readily used and embedded across the whole curriculum.

Our school curriculum is explained in further detail below and more information about the school curriculum is available from the DFE website:

Our Year 1 – 4 Curriculum


The curriculum we offer is designed to meet the needs of all our pupils. It is rich, varied, creative and imaginative and meets the needs of individual learners exceedingly well. It is a priority of the school to ensure that the basic skills of reading, writing, communication and maths are taught not only as discrete subjects but in as many other subjects as possible through a cross-curricular enquiry based approach.


Curriculum Overview

Each half term, the school sends home to parents an overview of the curriculum (Curriculum Statement) that summarises what their child will be learning at school for that half term. You can find these detailed Curriculum Statements within the Classrooms area of this website. 

If you would like a more general overview of your child's curriculum for the year then please look at the Curriculum Overviews below.
