At Orchard Primary School our curriculum follows the requirements of National Curriculum 14 and the Leicestershire Syllabus for R.E. Some subjects are taught discretely as separate subjects in their own right. These include Physical Education (PE) and Sport, Religious Education (RE) and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).
English and Mathematics are also taught discretely but are also incorporated into topic work whenever possible.
All other subjects are taught through integrated topics on a two-year rolling programme to ensure that children do not repeat or miss topics as they move through mixed-aged classes.
Children in the Foundation Stage Class follow topics linked to the Key Stage 1 topics but adapted to meet the interests of younger children.
