Paston Ridings 
Primary School


Our teachers tailor the curriculum we teach to suit the needs of their class, groups and individuals. We recognise that every child is unique and do our best to create learning opportunities that all children can access and enjoy.

In Foundation Stage and KS1 we teach Phonics using Letters and Sounds. This provides children with a clear and consistent whole school approach to begin their reading and writing. As children move into KS2 they should be confident with the 6 phases of letters and sounds, so they begin to follow Support for Spelling to extend their understanding of the English language.  

Themed Learning based on the Edison Curriculum has been designed to help teachers make all learning inspiring, exciting, creative and meaningful for all children. Where possible we use this cross curricular approach to ensure that children become fully immersed in their learning.

We follow guidance from the DfE on how to teach British Values in our school.

The new National Curriculum provides the core of the teaching and learning experiences in our school.
