Curriculum & Assessment
The Forest Federation provides a broad and balanced curriculum for children from 4 to 11 years of age. Our Curriculum follows the new statutory 2014 curriculum.
In Early Years the children follow the statutory Early Years Curriculum. https://www.gov.uk/early-years-foundation-stage
Key stage 1 and 2, (years 1-6) follow the National Curriculum. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum
The National Curriculum gives a framework for learning in all of the curriculum subject areas through Programmes of Study, which are set out to show the teaching and learning objectives and expected outcomes. Attainment Targets indicate what children should know and be expected to do at different stages throughout their education and these are reported through Level descriptions.
We adopt a subject-based and cross-curricular themed curriculum with clearly planned Schemes of Work in all subjects, in line with the Early Years Learning Goals and Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 National Curriculum requirements, which ensure continuity and progression in all curricular areas.
