The National Curriculum lays out the requirements for the teaching of English. The documents below, produced by Julie Sargent of InnovatEducation, outline the requirements for each year group.
The National Curriculum lays out the requirements for the teaching of mathematics. We follow the Scheme of Learning produced by White Rose.
Influenced, inspired and informed by the work of leading maths researchers and practitioners across the world, White Rose Maths brings together a team of highly experienced and passionate maths teaching experts to train, guide, help and support all those who want to make change happen in their schools.
We have chosen White Rose as our scheme of learning because they are committed to building a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress. Culturally, it has long been thought that there are some people who ‘can do maths’ and some who can’t. We know this is not the case.
The White Rose and St. Ebbe’s mantra:
With this mantra, we produce assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.
You can find details of content for each term here: White Rose Schemes of Learning
We supplement White Rose with ‘Maths No Problem’ which is based on the Singapore Maths approach as well as resources from NRich.

The St. Ebbe’s Curriculum for Compassion
Our curriculum is as rich in humanity as it is in knowledge.
Working with Dr. Debra Kidd, we have developed planning for foundation subjects around inquiry questions which engage children of all ages in deep thinking about the past, present and future of our planet with compassionate studies of the humans which have, do or will inhabit it. In a nutshell, it is a curriculum designed to empower our learners to change the world.
Ensuring that children are successful academically is a crucial part of education but of paramount importance is that they also learn how to live successful and happy lives where they are informed, courageous advocates of the things that matter to them.
With the skills, experience and passion in our staff team, we have begun to build a curriculum on the principles above. Employing a consultant with in-depth knowledge of curriculum development provided expertise and inspiration, access to cutting-edge research, as well as ongoing support and challenge.
Much of what we are teaching links explicitly to Literacy and in part to mathematics. Details of long term plans for Literacy and mathematics will be published separately.
