In order to fully meet the needs of our children, we are on an exciting journey as a school in developing our curriculum. At Holy Trinity CE Primary School we are developing a new approach to our curriculum planning and delivery and have adopted the Chris Quigley 'Essentials Curriculum' to promote a more creative and learner specific curriculum to foster both a love of learning and drive for high standards.
Below is a parent's guide of the essentials curriculum for each subject with detailed objectives for each year group.
At Holy Trinity Primary School, we use the National Book Banding System. We do not follow one particular reading scheme and provide our children with a range of books from various reading schemes including texts from: The Oxford Reading Tree. Storyworlds, Discovery World, Collins Big Cat, Rigby Star, Songbirds. We also provide our children with opportunities to read 'real books' and we are currently replenishing our supplies to include a wider range of reading materials.
