Curriculum

The Brooklands Curriculum 

The school is determined to ensure it continues to develop well-rounded, articulate, confident and high –achieving children.  Our curriculum design develops and strengthens the generally high starting points that our children have when they enter school. The curriculum provides clear opportunities to develop the children’s knowledge and ensures that they apply this to deepen their understanding. The curriculum is very successful  as our pupils leave Year 6 as articulate and well-rounded individuals where attainment at Greater Depth is often twice or sometimes almost three times the national average.

Our curriculum ensures that there is a much greater emphasis on the ‘powerful knowledge’ that children need in order to not only truly understand concepts, but also to enable them to apply the knowledge, offer informed explanations, make links and spot patterns. Crucially, it will also provide them with the essential foundations for the next part of their educational journey and beyond.

On this page you will find further details of the curriculum at Brooklands. In addition to the links below our Prospectus contains a significant amount of information about our curriculum, including reading scheme and phonics teaching information.

Phonics and Reading 

Phonics lessons within the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are delivered using the Letters and Sounds Programme –
