A new curriculum for schools was introduced by the government in 2014. On this page you will find details of the curriculum that our school uses and the content of this for each subject within each academic year group. You will also find details of phonics or reading schemes used in KS1.

Our curriculum approach is found through our curriculum intent, SEND policy, equalities objectives and accessibility plan. 

Faringdon Infant School Curriculum Intent Statement


At Faringdon Infant School, our curriculum is designed to be rich in meaningful first hand experiences and early language development. We recognise the varied starting points of the children and the power of early language and literacy in allowing children to access learning across the curriculum both in their early childhood and throughout their learning journey.


The curriculum in all year groups is built on a strong commitment to the personal and social development of our young learners.  Embedded through the curriculum are our Learning Muscles; a set of desirable learning behaviours which equip children to become inspired, excited and motivated learners.


We have a restless drive and aspiration to ensure that the curriculum enables continued readiness for the next stages of development and education, and improves the life chances of all children; adapting provision to meet the needs of different groups and individuals.  This means that we remain responsive to ways in which we can keep both the local community and the interests of our learners central to curriculum content and review. 

National Curriculum for England

As a school we  follow the National Curriculum for England. Where we use schemes of work these are in line with the aims and programmes of study that are set out in the National Curriculum. To find out more about the National Curriculum please click on the link below:
