The Curriculum at Rampton School

As a state-funded school, Rampton offers a broad and balanced curriculum which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life

The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. The national curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum. All maintained schools in England are legally required to follow the statutory national curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils.

The national curriculum is organised on the basis of 4 key stages and 12 subjects, classified in legal terms as ‘core’ and ‘other foundation’ subjects.

How we teach pupils to read.

At Rampton Primary School, we use the Jolly Phonics scheme in Foundation stage then Letters and Sounds to teach phonics from Y1 upwards. Once our children have completed the final phase of letters and Sounds and their phonic knowledge is secure, we use No Nonsense Spelling.

Reading books are organised into book banded colour groups. The book band boxes contain a wide range of books including Oxford Reading Tree, Collins Big Cats and others to supplement the range of choice. Pupils can select any book from their band colour to read at home and in school. Staff regularly assess pupils’ reading through Guided reading sessions, individual reading times and on-going assessments. Progress through the bands is carefully monitored to ensure that pupils are challenged appropriately.
Pupils have individual reading target books which helps them to identify the next steps in their reading development.
