We have a very exciting and enriching curriculum at Kings Road. From the first moment, Nursery children are encouraged to express themselves in a safe and warm
environment. Phonics is fundamental and organised so that all Key Stage 1 children receive tailored and focused teaching. Reading is the key to children’s development in
all subjects and is therefore fully embraced at all stages. We are particularly proud of our writing model, which is entitled The Royal Write.
English at Kings Road
We are very excited about our maths

drafted our calculation policy, which can
be found on our website.
The Head and Deputy Headteacher meet with
every teacher, every term in order to discuss and
set aspirational targets for every child. Each
child is carefully tracked in order to help them
be the best that they can be.
Maths at Kings Road
Kings Road is passionate about sport. We desire that children can enjoy physical
activity and give the opportunities for those who wish to compete.
We have our own sports coach on site. In addition to an excellent curriculum, we
also have a vast range of before and after school clubs.
In addition to playing lots of sport at Kings Road children are also part of the
leadership, including, leading clubs and encouraging others to lead healthy life styles.
Please refer to the Extra Curricular Programme for more details of sporting activities.
We believe that every child is entitled to a high quality education where knowledge, skills
and understanding are developed through personalised planning, teaching and real-life
experiences. Children should be taught in a caring and safe environment and be encouraged
to reach for the stars.
At Kings Road we aim to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum. We aim
to enable the children to learn and develop skills, attitudes and understanding in the Prime
and Specific areas of learning as outlined in the Statutory Framework for EYFS. The Prime
areas are: Personal Social and Emotional, Communication and Language and Physical
Development. The Specific areas are: Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World, Expressive
Arts and Design. Within these areas children will participate in a variety of activities both
with and adult and independently. This will be supplemented by our pledge that every child
in the EYFS will experience a wide range of high quality real-life experiences.
We believe that play, both indoors and outdoors, is the fundamental
way in which young children learn. Play can be enjoyed and
challenging. When playing, children behave in different ways.
Sometimes their play will be boisterous, sometimes they will describe
and discuss what they are doing and sometimes they will be quiet
and reflective as they play. Through play, children will be developing
across all the Prime and Specific areas of learning, working towards
achieving Early Learning Goals and developing their Characteristics
of Learning. Adults in the setting support play by planning and
resourcing a stimulating environment, supporting
children’s learning through planned play,
extending and supporting children’s independent
play and developing children’s language
and communication in their play.
For children starting in our Nursery, the primary focus will be on developing the Prime areas of Learning, as without these it is difficult for a child
to be emotionally, physically and mentally ready to develop their specific skills. As the children settle and develop, more emphasis will be put upon
continuing to develop the prime areas at the same time as developing the Specific areas. As children move up into Reception, the Prime areas do
not become redundant, these skills still need to be maintained, supported and extended at an age appropriate level. However, the focus does begin
to move to the specific areas which include Reading, Writing and Maths, but they are still taught through a play rich curriculum. This ensures we
remain true to the ethos of the EYFS whilst ensuring our children are becoming ready for KS1.
Progression through the EYFS
Within EYFS we are keen to involve our parents throughout all aspects of our curriculum, we believe that when parents are engaged, children are able to
achieve more in the long term.
We provide an open door policy ensuring all parents are able to approach any member of staff, this also supports the development of strong home-
school relationships. Within our learning we try to ensure parents can become involved as much as possible. This ranges from weekly home learning
information, stay and plays, parent readers and parent workshops.
