English will teach pupils to write and speak fluently so that they can communicate clearly to others. Through reading, pupils can develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. It also enables pupils to acquire knowledge and build on what they already know. English skills will be taught and applied through all other areas of the curriculum. English aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Read easily, fluently and with understanding
  • Read for both pleasure and information
  • Acquire a wide vocabulary and an understanding of grammar
  • Appreciate our literary heritage
  • Write clearly, accurately and coherently
  • Use discussion in order to learn
  • Make formal presentations and participate in debate

Mathematics is a creative and highly interactive subject. It is essential to everyday life; mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world and the ability to reason mathematically. The aims of the new curriculum are to:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through frequent practice over time, to increase understanding, the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry
  • Solve problems by using their mathematical skills to break down problems into simpler steps and to persevere in seeking solutions.

Science has changed our lives and is vital for the world’s future prosperity. All pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. They should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. The aims of the science curriculum are to:

  • Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding
  • Develop science enquiry that help to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • To gain knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science
