Curriculum

At Romiley Primary School, we are dedicated to ensuring that each child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our curriculum is one that ensures all children are given a broad range of enriching experiences and are well-prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils understand the importance of democracy and tolerance for others, positive relationships are encouraged and modelled. We are keen to ensure our curriculum provides children with both knowledge and skills.

Curriculum Documents

Our children follow the nationally agreed curriculum with an emphasis on it being broad and balanced.

Children in Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and the National Curriculum is followed throughout the rest of the school. This includes English, Maths, Science, ICT, RE, Geography, History, Art, Design Technology, Music, PSHCE, a Modern Foreign Language and PE.

At KS2 in Maths, children at each year group are ‘set’ across two groups according to ability as determined by on-going assessments.

  • Early Years Foundation Stage (ages 3—5 years) — this enables a secure and firm foundation for future learning
  • Key Stage 1 (ages 5 –7 years)
  • Key Stage 2 (ages 7—11 years)

Teachers send a ‘Termly Letter’ to parents/carers at the start of each term giving an overview of the curriculum for that term; this includes any trips, visits, visitors and topics.

If you require any further information on any aspect of our curriculum, please contact your child’s class teacher or email headteacher@romiley.stockport.sch.uk

    These videos range from letter sounds to high frequency words, based on the UK Letters and Sounds document.
    Over the last 4 years, the website has grown and his videos viewed over 4 million times.

  • How Do We Teach Maths

    Parents frequently tell us that they can't help with maths homework because the way it is taught is very different from how they were taught.
    Don't despair. There is an interesting article on the BBC online magazine that goes some way to explaining the new method, just click on the image above.
