The Taught Curriculum

We aim to meet the needs of all pupils in the school by providing a broad and balanced curriculum where all children can experience success and build on their strengths.

The National Curriculum and our own curriculum statement give us the framework of what is to be taught and it is within this framework that we organise our own curriculum.

Whilst we realise the prime importance of English and Maths within the primary school (they are taught in every class each morning), we also feel that children need a more rounded education. At Petham we therefore place a lot of emphasis on Science, Computers, Sport, Art and Music. We offer additional specialist teaching in Swimming, Gymnastics and Dance and a range of other sports.

We set targets for the children and the school in English and Maths and review progress on a termly basis (as Petham time lags many years behind modern times we still use three terms in our school year Autumn, Spring and Summer).

Children are taught Religious Education in line with the Kent Agreed Syllabus and guidelines from the Canterbury Diocesan Board of Education.

Please visit your child's class page for further information about what they will be learning this year.
