St Erth CP School follows the National Curriculum. This determines the content of what will be taught and through Programmes of Study and attainments targets for the National Curriculum subjects . It also determines how performance will be assessed and reported.
The National Curriculum is organised into Key Stages. The reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, KS1 is for children aged 5-7 (Year Groups 1 and 2) and KS2 is for children aged 7-11 (Year Groups 3,4,5 and 6).
In EYFS and KS1 the Read, Write, Inc literacy programme is followed. For some pupils this may continue into KS2 using the Fresh Start programme which is age appropriate.
We have created our own topic themes which are sometimes linked to the 'Inspire Curriculum'. This helps children develops the skills they need to participate fully in the world around them and build on learning experiences to support the National Curriculum.
Pupils take statutory assessment tests (SATs) at the end of Year 2 and Year 6. Optional papers are given to other year groups.
