High Wycombe Church of England Curriculum


Purpose of the Curriculum

Our curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum, enriched by other experiences and opportunities, to allow children to explore their place and role, both within their own and the global community. It is coherently planned and sequenced to be ambitious for all pupil groups and ensures breadth, depth and balance.


The aim of our curriculum is to instil a love of learning in our pupils, enabling them to gain the requisite skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners, in readiness for their next stage of education and beyond.


Our Curriculum

In Reception, our teachers follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), providing purposeful play and exploratory activity both indoors and outdoors. 


The areas of learning and development that we focus on in EYFS are:

  • Communication and Language (C&L)
  • Physical Development (PD)
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World (UTW)
  • Expressive Arts and Design (EAD)

In Years 1-6, our teachers follow the National Curriculum, alongside other experiences and opportunities, which provides our children with all the knowledge and skills that they need in order to excel throughout their learning journeys and beyond. 


The subjects we cover in KS1 and KS2 are:

  • English 
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Religious Education (RE)
  • Computing (ICT)
  • Design and Technology (DT)
  • History
  • Geography
  • Art 
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • PSHE
  • Foreign Languages - French (KS2)


In the Autumn term of Year 1, the teachers strive to achieve a smooth transition for the children from Reception in to Year 1 through adopting a curriculum which incorporates aspects of the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum. This fine balance of the two programmes of study allows for more flexibility and allows the children to settle into the new routines of KS1.
