Curriculum & Learning

INSPIRE 2020 Curriculum

We have worked very hard on our latest – vocabulary-based – curriculum. Please click here to read more.

At Shaftesbury CE Primary School we use Read Write Inc. to teach phonics all through EYFS and into KS1.

Each class is assessed and split into small groups so that children are taught within the appropriate phase.  At all times children work within their class group.  Assessment is continuous and children will be moved between the groups as they are ready.

Children are taught how to break down words into their individual sounds in order to read and how to put sounds together for writing.

KS2 children who still require phonics input will be taught in very small groups with their peers.

EYFS Approach

We have a very clear and intensely thought out approach to our EYFS experience. Please click here to read more.
