We are very grateful for the skills, knowledge and values that our children have learned at Broad Hinton, that they now carry with them to the next phrase of their life."

Our curriculum design and teaching of the skills and knowledge of each subject is based on a thematic approach which encourages and enhances the talents of all.  All children of every ability and culture are encouraged to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of subjects that they are interested in.  The thematic approach allows for children to develop their basic skills of reading and writing through other medium and literature.  Our broad and balanced topic based curriculum encompasses all subjects each term.  To see our cross curricular approach and coverage of subjects in each team see parent overviews below.

To find out more about the coverage for each subject for each year group please follow the link to the National Curriculum September 2014.  For Early Years skills and coverage follow the Birth to 5 link and for our own school topic coverage follow the link overview of topics.  

We use Read, Write Inc (Ruth Miskin Training - Ruth Miskin Phonics Training) as the basis for phonics and we use a variety of reading schemes throughout the school to match the individual needs of the children.  Phonics is taught in four groups with a teaching assistant or teacher leading the groups.  It is taught 5 days a week in small groups dependent ont he individual needs.  Early reading is part of the teaching using the Read, Write Inc reading books but reading at home is facilitated through a vareity of reading schemes which have all been banded accordingly.  These include: Oxford Reading Tree, Songbirds, Rigby Stars and Rapid Readers.

  Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is taught weekly in each class and this is based on the SCARF scheme. (SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship (coramlifeeducation.org.uk)
