National Curriculum Objectives.
The National Curriculum has been through a huge change and expectations of each Year Group has changed. In order for you to get an understanding of what your children will be doing and what is expected of them we have included the National Curriculum Objectives for each subject. Some subjects have objectives that are School Year specific others are Key Stage specific.
The national curriculum states the legal requirement that:
'Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based, and which:
All state schools ... must teach religious education ... All schools must publish their curriculum by subject and academic year online'.
(National Curriculum in England: Framework Document, DfE, September 2013, p.4)
Although there is not a National Curriculum for RE, all maintained schools must follow the National Curriculum requirements to teach a broad and balanced curriculum, which includes RE. All maintained schools therefore have a statutory duty to teach RE. Academies and free schools are contractually required through the terms of their funding agreement to make provision for the teaching of RE. Further information concerning RE in academies and free schools is given below.
The RE curriculum is determined by the local Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE), which is responsible for producing the locally agreed syllabus for RE. Agreed Syllabuses used in schools (maintained or academy), which are not designated with a religious character must ‘reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain’. Schools with a religious designation may prioritise one religion in their RE curriculum, but all schools must recognise diverse religions and systems of belief in the UK both locally and nationally.

Long Term Planning.
Please click on the pages below to see the long term curriculum coverage at Trinity. These curriculum plans show how we have planned to cover all the skills within the National Curriculum, through a range of topics.
Please note these curriculum plans are an indication of our intended coverage. We review and update our planning in order to incorporate new ideas and interests of our pupils.
The half termly curriculum letters will provide more detail about what your child will be learning - these are available on the class pages.
If there is anything that you would like to know about our curriculum that you cannot find on this page or any of the class pages please contact your child's class teacher and they will be happy to help.
Just a reminder - paper copies of all information on our web site are available on request from the school office.
