At North Walsham Junior, Infant School and Nursery all our children will study the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
Foundation Stage children (Nursery and Reception) will learn through the seven areas of learning:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Understanding the World
- Physical Development
- Expressive Arts and Design
These areas underpin the organisation of the learning environment; the activities provided for children and the monitoring of children’s progress and development.
English National Curriculum
- Art and design
- Physical education (PE)
- Design technology
- Religious education
These schools prepare pupils positively for life in modern Britain and promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

North Walsham Junior and Infant School Federation are committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the schools are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
A cross-curricular, thematic approach is sometimes used to teach the ‘core’ and ‘foundation’ subjects. A creative enquiry theme is selected and applied across a year group each term/half term. By adding this dimension to the planned learning, we are able to provide opportunities for key skills to develop across the curriculum and to cultivate creative thinking in our pupils.We put great emphasis on pupils' oracy development- they need to be able to speak their mind, think things through aloud, hold an opinion and communicate effectively.

Year group curriculum
We take a whole school approach to planning core subjects in English and maths for the sake of continuity and progress, using Read Write Inc. and resources from White Rose Maths Hub and Maths Makes Sense programmes. See separate tabs above for more information about these resources.
