From September 2014 the new National Curriculum for state schools in England will be introduced.  As a school we are already planning for these changes and you will see this in some of the work that the children will be doing over the next few months.

From January 2015, Ashurst are adopting the Focus Learning Challenge Curriculum.  The links below will show you the curriculum coverage in each year group.

We teach the objectives for each subject as outlined in the National Curriculum. For the Literacy Curriculum the objectives are taken directly from the National Curriculum.  Click on the link above for more detail on how the school delivers Phonics.  The Numeracy objectives are again taken directly from the National Curriculum, though the school does also subscribe to the Lancashire Grid for Learning to give a more detailed structure for the delivery.  The details of each subject can be found here:

In Nursery and Reception the children work from the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.  The structure of the planning takes account of continuous provision, enhanced provision and focused activities.  Click on the links below for more detail of the provision for both Nursery and Reception.
