All areas of the Curriculum set out in the National Curriculum are provided at Hamstreet. Each subject is designed to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills of pupils in the course of their time at primary school.
Generally there is an integrated approach to learning across the curriculum. Subject policies and schemes of work have been agreed and are available for reference from the school office.
It is our intention to make each area of the curriculum accessible to all pupils whatever their ability. We will carry out regular assessment in order to match work for all pupils and encourage them to attain their potential. Where possible, learning will be enhanced by trips or by visitors coming to the school. At times this may necessitate a voluntary contribution from parents being made.
A close working relationship with home will be sought to maximise every opportunity for the enjoyment of learning and for educational progress to be made.
