At Orsett C.E. Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which develops the ability of the individual child according to their age and ability, allowing them to shine and flourish in all they do. The school has implemented the National Curriculum alongside the Chris Quigely skills to ensure that all children cover the National Curriculum requirements and skills during their time with us.
Teachers use a wide variety of teaching methods and adapt their teaching methods according to the subject, age and ability of the children. At Orsett we place great emphasis on giving children hands-on experiences in learning, as we believe that it is only by actually doing something that true understanding of a specific area and its relevance to real-life can be gained.
The structure of the curriculum varies during the primary phase of education. It can be broadly sub-divided into three main areas: Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.
