Aiming High Learning for Life


Welcome to the Curriculum page of our website. Here you will find information on the different subjects taught at Putnoe Primary School and how you can support your child's learning in these areas. Please use the links on the left had side of the page to navigate between the different subject areas.

In line with government requirements, the school sets whole school curriculum targets annually that are developed from individual pupil and class targets set by the teaching staff. The targets are discussed, agreed and monitored by the Governing Body’s Standards Committee. The National Curriculum applies to pupils of compulsory school age in maintained schools.

The following subjects are included in the National Curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Computing
  • Religious Education
  • Art
  • Design Technology
  • Music
  • Geography
  • History
  • Physical Education
  • Personal Social and Health Education

For each subject and for each Key Stage, programmes of study set out what pupils should be taught and attainment targets set out the expected standards of pupils’ performance.

At the bottom of this page is a 'Parental Guide To The New Primary Curriculum' which outlines what is being taught in schools from September 2014.
