A Primary Trust for Primary Schools

Lumen Learning Trust

The Echelford Primary School


Children in Reception class follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum as set out by Government guidelines. The curriculum is divided into seven key areas which cover all aspects of the child's development: Personal Social Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication & Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World, and Expressive Arts & Design.

In Years 1 & 2 the children follow the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum and in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 they follow the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum. The National Curriculum for both key stages consists of the core subjects: Mathematics, English, Science and Information & Communication Technology (ICT); and the foundation subjects; History, Geography, Design & Technology, Art and Design, Music and P.E. The Surrey Agreed Syllabus is used for the teaching of Religious Education (R.E).

Children are taught in mixed ability classes throughout the school. They progress through the classes according to age except in very exceptional instances where the individual needs of the child make an alternative programme necessary.
