The Schools Curriculum
Redhill Primary School follows the National Curriculum for Key Stages One and Two. In Reception we follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum. The development of language and skill in its use, underpins all other areas of the curriculum at Redhill. We recognise that children develop not only as readers and writers but also as speakers and listeners. For subject specific details please see the school prospectus.
Learning is at the centre of all that we do, within a context based creative , flexible and enriched curriculum, which enables us to explore and understand the world around us, and our place within the International global community. We believe that education is about much more than academic achievement. We aim to develop the whole child, and provide extensive opportunities for them to explore, participate, and develop a keen sense of identity, responsibility and team work. We offer a range of residential visits including Kingswood Nursery and Infant Centre in Forest School and explore the Isle of Wight with Year 4 children.
