The curriculum at St Antony’s is rich, broad and balanced in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum with the addition of the Religious Education scheme endorsed by the Bishops Conference of England and Wales.
The curriculum comprises of
Foundation Stage; nursery and reception classes.
The Early Years curriculum will be organised around the following areas of learning; personal, social and emotional development, communication language and literacy, problem solving, reasoning and numeracy, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical development and creative development.
Key Stage 1 and 2
The New National Primary Curriculum came in to effect in September 2014. English, Mathematics, and Computing are planned and assessed against the new year group expectations. The International Primary Curriculum is used to support the topics for science, history, geography, art, design and technology.
French is taught from years 3 to 6.
LCP phonics and main scheme Oxford Reading Tree are used to support the reading and phonics within Key Stage 1.
Parents will be informed at the start of each year of the homework children will be expected to complete. Any homework which is set, e.g. P.A.C.T. (reading), IMPACT (mathematics), spellings, times-tables, visits to libraries, finishing off incomplete school work, or work where a child needs extra practice, will be initiated and followed up by the class teacher.
Parents are asked to support the school by helping their child finish the work. However, space will be left for the important home activities such as swimming, Cubs, Brownies, ballet, football, riding, music and drama which also form part of a well-rounded education. We have introduced home challenges that are creative activities to do during the year at home.
