Curriculum Overview

At Drayton Park, we follow the National Curriculum for Primary Schools. A copy of it can be found here.


In years 1-6, we teach the curriculum through a series of topics, which change every half-term. As we are a one-and-a-half form entry school, with some mixed age classes, we run our topics on a two-year cycle, so no child repeats a topic. Each topic is run across the three classes in a 'Phase', so the children in Years 1 & 2 do the same topic together, as do those in Years 3 & 4 and in Years 5 & 6. There is an overview of our topic cycle below. Foundation Stage (our Nursery and Reception classes), run a different curriculum to the rest of the school.

At the beginning of each topic, we send home a 'topic web', outlining the learning that your child will engage in. Click on the other links on our curriculum page to see the topic webs for each Phase.
