School Curriculum

Parkroyal is committed to meeting the requirements of the primary National Curriculum through a cross-curricular, topic-based approach. This approach is taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners. Our curriculum is exciting and will inspire children whilst nurturing a passion for learning.

Within Key Stage 1 phonics is taught following Letters and Sounds phases and enhanced through Jolly Phonics. Reading schemes in Key Stage 1 include: Pearson, Oxford Reading Tree, Collins, GINN and Rigby Star.

Throughout this year we are developing our new Parkroyal curriculum based on the skills and knowledge laid out in the National Curriculum. Following consultation with all teaching staff, subject leaders have created a ‘progression of skills’ for all subjects ensuring continuity and preventing undue repetition. We will commence using this new curriculum from September 2018; at this point the ‘progression of skills’ documents will be available on this page, alongside long-term and medium-term planning for each year-group.
