Our Curriculum

At Valley Park Community School we follow the National Curriculum as published by the Department for Education in September 2014.  Subjects are taught using a thematic and cross curricular approach with an underlying focus on British values. 

 

Please find below a list of curriculum maps for the school.

PE is taught at least twice weekly by teachers who ensure pupils access gymnastics, dance, outdoor games and athletics.  Professional coaches are used to develop staff expertise and provide inspiration to our children.  Swimming is taught in Year 4 by Local Authority Swimming instructors. 

 

We have chosen this curriculum approach as we feel is builds on pupils’ skills and knowledge as they move through school.  We feel it is both broad and balanced and that it inspires them to further their learning.
