Primary Academy

Our Curriculum

On this page will find information about the content of the curriculum that Seathorne Primary Academy follows.

We meet all the requirements of the National Curriculum which means that our FS1 and FS2 pupils follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum; our Year 1 - Year 6 pupils follow the New National Curriculum introduced in September 2014.

Parents and other members of the public can find out more about the curriculum our school is following by clicking on the following links:

Development Matters - EYFS Curriculum

Primary National Curriculum


At Seathorne Primary Academy, we follow the Letters and Sounds scheme. This begins with our youngest pupils listening to sounds in the environment and rhythms and beats.

From this foundation block our pupils move through the six phases of ‘Letters and Sounds’ and are further supported by PiXL Spelling Package during KS1 to help bridge the learning between recognising and reading sounds to spelling them correctly in their writing. The PiXL Spelling Package is then used to support the transition into Y3 and used throughout KS2.


Our reading scheme is based around the Oxford Reading Tree scheme with additional texts used to compliment and extend the books available. Within Seathorne Primary Academy, we offer a wealth of books to support guided reading which, along with the Oxford Reading Tree, are book banded and organised in line with Accelerated Reader. This scheme allows children to become more independent in their reading and have more freedom in their choice of book, whilst being guided by an individual, personalised reading range. We promote reading for pleasure opportunities and encourage our children to develop a love for reading through our regular guided reading sessions, whole-class story and novel time as well as paired and individual reading which all happen daily right across the academy.

Intent, Implementation, Impact

By clicking on the attached document below you are able to read more about Our Curriculum Statement for the year ahead which details Seathorne Primary Academy's approach to the curriculum. 


The Covid19 pandemic has, of course, had an impact on our planning for this year. We aim to do everything within our power to ensure that our children continue to learn as effectively and seamlessly as possible whether working in school or from home.

We have created guidance for families on what this will look like; it contains information about what we will do, want families can do to support their children and instructions on how to access remote learning resources and tools.
