Government legislation requires pupils at certain ages to undertake Core and Foundation subjects. Britannia ensures its curriculum is balanced, broadly based and:
•promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils
•fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum (copies of this Government document are available in school)
•prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life
The Core subjects are English (Literacy), Mathematics (Numeracy) and Science.
The Foundation subjects are History, Geography, Design Technology, Computing, Music, Art and Design, Modern Foreign Languages and Physical Education.
The National Curriculum sets Programmes of Study in all subjects for pupils at various stages of their school career, but it is left to schools to plan schemes of work to deliver the programme of study.
At Britannia, we believe we offer pupils the very best opportunities to learn through a stimulating and varied curriculum delivered by outstanding teachers. Our Key Stage results continue to significantly improve, testament to the hard work of our staff, the support of our families and the focus, dedication and behaviour for learning attitude of all our children.
