Curriculum

Currently, the school follows the revised EYFS Framework in the Early Years Foundation Stage. The school has adopted the New National Curriculum 2014 and Maths and Literacy follow the framework. The school has developed a provisional whole school Curriculum Topic Plan in line with the New Curriculum 2014.

However, we have moved away from prescriptive schemes of work and use a more skills based approach. With mixed aged classes, we follow a two year cycle for skills acquisition and try to chose topics which reflect pupil interest.

The school uses a very wide range of reading schemes to support the acquisition of reading skills, including Oxford Reading Tree, Pearson Bug Club and Discovery World.

For its committment to the development of ICT across the school, Little Hadham Primary School was accredited with the BECTA ICT Award in 2011.

ICT Vision Statement

'Through a rich and stimulating environment, everyone in our school community will become life-long learners, well-equipped to use developing technology with confidence, creativity and enthusiasm.'

We strongly believe in encouraging our children to learn their times tables and have a School Tables Challenge for them to aim for.
