The School Curriculum at Dishforth CE School

We provide a broad range of learning experiences designed to motivate a desire to learn and to develop confidence, alongside social skills. We try to foster independence and to nurture a caring and responsible attitude to each other and to our surroundings.  We emphasise personal achievement and provide positive feedback to the children by way of verbal praise, certificates and through marking their work.

The curriculum is organised under four main components:

  • Early Years (3  to 5 years)
  • Key Stage One (KS1 : 5-7 years of age, school years 1-2)
  • Lower Key Stage Two  (LKS2 : 8-9 years of age, school years 3-4);
  • Upper Key Stage Two  (UKS2 : 10-11 years of age, school years 5-6);

Parents will receive a termly class newsletter giving information about the current topics being studied.Copies of the latest Curriculum newsletters can be found on the Class pages. If you would like any further information on the curriculum followed in school, please speak to your child's class teacher.
