KS1/KS2 and results 

All children from Year 1 to 6 follow the 2014 National Curriculum which covers English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education (PE), Design Technology, Art and Design. In addition to the National Curriculum we teach Personal, Social, Health, Education (PSHE), Religious Education (RE) and Spanish at Barlby.

In KS1, the school morning follows the structure of Guided Reading, Literacy, Phonics, Handwriting and Maths. There is a strong focus on the development of synthetic phonics for reading, writing and spelling, alongside the development of letter formation and cursive handwriting. In KS2, the school day begins with Guided Reading, followed by Literacy, Guided Maths and Maths. Handwriting sessions are also carried out several times a week.

Afternoon topic learning is delivered through the Cornerstones Curriculum, which ensures foundation subjects are taught creatively, with strong cross curricular links. Curriculum topics are linked to children’s interests such as Superheroes (Year 1) and Potions (Year 4). These topics are also entwined with core subject learning.
