Curriculum   Find out what we are learning.

Children at Kielder Primary School and Nursery learn, mostly, through whole school topics.  These are organised in a 3 year rolling programme. Children are taught in three classrooms that are organised broadly into Nursery and Reception and year 1 in two adjoining rooms, and years 2, 3, 4. 5 and 6 in a third classroom. Organisation can vary, with children being taught in the classroom that best suits them. For instance children may work with some children in the morning and a different set of children in the afternoon.  This ensures children make the best possible progress and that they are accessing work that is most suitable for them.

The education we provide is very personalised and we strive to ensure a child's individual needs are always met.  As all the children play and often work together, they confidently move from one classroom to the other when required.

Please read our prospectus to find out more detail about individual subjects.

We use Read, Write, Inc phonics scheme and the Power of Reading in Literacy and Numicon to support our children in their maths.

The  Curriculum developed by the PSHE Association and Government Statutory Guidance, informs our PSHE and RSE curriculum.  We are also receiving input from Encompass - the Next Steps:

Our RE curriculum is based on Northumberland's Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education
