New National Curriculum
Below you will find detailed guides to our curriculum by subject, year group and term.
We follow the national curriculum which all maintained primary schools are using. There have been some significant changes in recent years. The content in almost all subjects has been slimmed down, except in Mathematics, English, Science and Computing. For example, in Mathematics pupils will know their 12 times table by the age of nine, write computer code from Year 3 onwards; in Science there is a shift towards the acquisition of facts alongside 'working scientifically' and in Literacy there are detailed spelling lists for each year group. Key Stage 2 pupils will also learn a Modern Foreign Language. Our pupils will learn French.
The old system of 'levels' used to report children's attainment and progress has been removed and will not be replaced with a new national system. Old Sarum Primary School is developing a new assessment system in collaboration with a cluster of good schools across Salisbury. We will continue to keep you informed about these developments throughout the year.
If you would like more details regarding the curriculum, please make an appointment at the school office to speak to Mr Jones.
