Our curriculum is broad and balanced, providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds to succeed. We have a focus on core learning and maximise the use of ICT in enabling all pupils to have full access to the curriculum.
From the Reception Class to Year 6 in Key Stage 2, Deer Park School offers a curriculum suitable for our inclusive intake that meets the needs of all pupils and leads to high standards of academic and personal achievement. This is based on the EYFS and National Curriculum and includes formal teaching of spelling, punctuation and grammar as part of our emphasis on literacy. ICT provision is innovative and supports all learners. We teach RE and PSHE and offer an exciting enrichment programme.
Our SENCO ensures that requirements of the SEN Code of Practice are met and works with teachers and the team of classroom assistants to support pupils with specific learning needs so that they can participate fully, learn and succeed. When they leave us at the end of Year 6, pupils will have received an excellent education preparing them for their secondary school of choice.
We follow a combination of the Read Write Inc. Phonics scheme and Letters & Sounds which we think offers the best programme for our children; for 4 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write and for 7 and 8 year-olds needing to catch up quickly.
Our recent parent workshop presentation on phonics is available here.
We recently held our first Maths Day which everyone really enjoyed, click here to view our PowerPoint presentation from the day.
