At Nansen Primary School we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum. The structure of the English curriculum currently focuses upon the use of class novels as a stimulus where reading, writing and grammar activities are designed to strongly relate to the chosen genre.

We deliver the maths curriculum through Power Maths in Years 1 to 4. This is an exciting whole-class mastery approach that works for every child. It is the only mastery programme perfectly aligned to the White Rose Maths progressions and schemes of learning, it’s written specifically for UK classrooms by leading mastery experts and is recommended by the DfE. In Years 5 to 6 we follow White Rose Maths.

To deliver our topics, we use the Cornerstones Curriculum. It is a broad and balanced, knowledge and skills-based curriculum for schools that makes learning fun and raises standards. All units of work are closely mapped against the National Curriculum which ensures full curriculum coverage.

PE is delivered in conjunction with Premier Active.
