Curriculum provision

As an academy The Manor School must teach a broad and balanced curriculum including English, Maths and Science. We must also teach Religious Education. In order to provide the children with a broad and balanced curriculum we incorporate the National Curriculum (introduced September 2014).

The National Curriculum is a set of subjects and is organised into blocks of years called Key Stages (KS). At The Manor we have three key stages.

  • EYFS
  • Key Stage One: Years 1 and 2
  • Key Stage Two; Years 3, 4,5 and 6

Within the National Curriculum there are Core Subjects and Non-core Subjects.

The Core Subjects are:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science

The Non-core subjects are:

  • Art and Design
  • Computing
  • Design and Technology
  • History
  • Geography
  • Music
  • Physical Education (PE)
  • Modern Foreign Language

We also make provision for the teaching of Religious Education and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship (PSHE&C)


If you require more information about the curriculum please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs Gordon (Headteacher) or Miss Shires (Deputy Head)

At The Manor School we follow LCP to support the teaching of phonics.
