Curriculum & Learning
At Diamond Wood Community Academy we use the ‘Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’ to plan a broad, balanced and language rich curriculum for all children within our Nursery and Reception classes.
In Key Stage One teachers follow the ‘National Curriculum 2014’. The curriculum is topic based, however subjects are explicitly taught. Cross-curricular links are enhanced through our tailored Forest Schools and creative curriculum. The foundation subjects are underpinned and supported by quality teaching and learning of the core subjects. Our aim is that this strength supports and enables our children with transferable skills, to continue their learning journey beyond Key Stage 1.
