Our Curriculum


The National Curriculum can be accessed on our homepage.

 Under the "Pupils" tab, each year group has links to curriculum information sheets for each half term.

Our exciting and engaging school curriculum includes the statutory National Curriculum, Religious Education, Sex Education in Year 6 and lots of opportunities for wider experiences.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which is underpinned by British Values and personal, social and health education.  

Our award winning "Honeysuckle" pastoral team comprises of a learning mentor, a community liaison worker and two behaviour support workers.  Honeysuckle provides social and emotional support for groups of children and many parents.

Dalton School works closely with local Secondary Schools not only to offer extended transition programmes but also to benefit from specialist teaching in subjects such as French, Science, Higher Level Mathematics, PE and Music.

Some subjects in our school curriculum are taught discretely, although we make cross curricular links where appropriate. Our Topic Work is centred around a whole class text, which links to a History or Geography focus, as can be seen in our Long Term Topic Plan below.

Our English curriculum is now focused on class book studies and we use White Rose Maths to support our Mathematics teaching.  We adapt our teaching according to cross curricular links, the children's interests, learning needs and topical issues.
