The Curriculum at Dollis Primary School


The National Curriculum is more than just a structure shaping the way we teach and learn; it has a real impact on pupils’ lives far beyond the day they take their last walk out of the school gates.


The DfE has reshaped the curriculum to a programme it feels better enables the next generation to compete effectively with their international peers. The framework for key stages 1 and 2 includes:


  1. Contextual information about both the overall school curriculum and the statutory national curriculum, including the statutory basis of the latter.


  2. Aims for the statutory national curriculum.


  3. Statements on inclusion, and on the development of pupils’ competence in numeracy and maths, language and literacy across the curriculum.


  4. Programmes of study for all the national curriculum subjects


At Dollis Primary School we are proud of our cross-curricular approach to learning. Each term, year groups follow a lead topic, usually from the history, geography or science curriculum. This begins with a High Impact Starting Point to engage the children in the topic. Much of the English curriculum is taught through these lead topic areas. The phonics scheme used in the school (primarily KS1) is 'Letters and Sounds' (Oxford Owl).
