Our Curriculum Implementation and Overviews

We deliver a 'whole school curriculum', meaning all children are exposed to the same topic, but at an age-appropriate level. This is updated regularly and further information can be found below.

'Creative Curriculum' Days

As part of our Creative Curriculum, we regularly hold 'Creative Days'. These allow our pupils and opportunity to explore subjects in greater depth, experiencing different classroom environments and their teachers. 



We follow the Letters and Sounds programme. This is supported by a variety of resources including:

Bug Club

Jolly Phonics




At Axbridge we follow the National Book Banding System, drawing from a variety of publications.

These include Oxford Reading Tree, Heinemann, Collins Big Cats, Rigby Stars and individual authors such as Roald Dahl and many more.

All children access this scheme and can choose a book that is most suitable for their ability and interest.
