At Millbrook we are committed to teaching a broad and balanced curriculum that challenges all of our pupils and enriches their life experience. As of September 2014 in line with Government initiative Millbrook is delivering the New Curriculum.

In Foundation Stage we do response planning on a weekly basis meaning our activities are based on the previous weeks assessment.

In Key Stage 1 we plan our topics around the interests of the children. The children help us by thinking of visits they’d like to go on, questions they’d like answered and challenges they want to complete. The teachers build on the children’s ideas to plan a creative, motivating and child-centred curriculum that provides challenge for all.

In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 our reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree from Oxford University Press, supplemented with the “Floppy’s Phonics” scheme. We use the ” Letters and Sounds” programme to teach phonics.
