Pupils  »  Curriculum

At Park Primary PRU we offer a broad and enriched curriculum which follows the new National Curriculum. 
We follow a topic based approach and each half term a new topic is introduced. The topic is then used to explore different subjects within the curriculum, although we also ensure that all basic skills within Numeracy and English are targeted as these are often areas in learning that need developing before others can be addressed.
We have develped long and medium term plans for Science, English and Numeracy along with a Yearly overview showing topics with their cross curricular links to other subject areas.
