Along with all Local Authority maintained state schools, we work within the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage for children in the Reception Class, and the National Curriculum for children in Key Stages 1 and 2. At Honington it has been agreed that the total curriculum should help our pupils to develop their potential to the full – intellectually, creatively, morally, spiritually, socially and physically preparing the child for the society into which he or she will grow up. Teaching and learning in all areas of the curriculum are based on the school’s Christian Foundation and we follow the Suffolk Locally Agreed Syllabus for RE by teaching the enquiry-based Emmanuel Project Scheme. More information can be found on our RE page. All pupils take part in an act of Collective Worship each day unless otherwise requested by parents.
Children in Years 1 and 2 (up to the age of approximately 7 years) follow the Key Stage 1 Curriculum. Children in Years 3-6 (up to the age of approximately 11 years) follow the Key Stage 2 Curriculum. We currently use Letters and Sounds Phonics Programme across the school to develop the phonological awareness of our children. This is supported by the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme which is used throughout the school until children move onto free reading, if they are able, during Key Stage 2.
