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)
