Curriculum

At Romilly Primary, we are privileged to have well qualified staff, representing a wide variety of interests and experiences. We place the pupils at the centre of their learning.

Our curriculum is designed to develop the ‘whole child... socially, emotionally, morally and educationally.’

The provision of a well organised curriculum, catering for the needs of all, is of paramount importance. Skills and knowledge are taught through a series of structured activities designed to promote pupils' development. As such, the curriculum is not only concerned with skills and content, but also with its planning, organisation, evaluation and the way in which learners engage with it.

Our curriculum includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum and Foundation Phase, but also the range of extra curricular activities organised by the school to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’ or what the pupils learn from the way they are treated and the way they are expected to behave.

Organisation of the Curriculum

FOUNDATION PHASE (3-7 years old)

Sex Education

The school’s agreed sex education policy follows national and local guidelines and is agreed by the Governing Body. Parents wishing to with draw their child from the planned programme should contact the Headteacher.

Welsh

Welsh is taught as a second language and Welsh history traditions and customs form an important part of the curriculum. We actively promote a bilingual approach through Welsh lessons and ‘Incidental Welsh’.

The school conforms to the legal position relating to collective worship and it is seen as an important part of school life. Any parents wishing to withdraw their children from assemblies should contact the Headteacher. Documents relating to the Foundation Phase and National Curriculum are available for viewing at school.
