Curriculum Overview

At Nicol Mere School we follow the National Curriculum. Work is differentiated to the needs of individual pupils. We believe that it is a broad and balanced curriculum, building in cross curricular work to develop key skills across the whole school. Each class has a “leading” holistic topic each term. Teachers have the autonomy to deliver the curriculum creatively and in a manner that they deem appropriate within the boundaries of the programmes of study.

Our new curriculum overviews for each year group are currently in development and will be accessible from this page in the near future.

Throughout the year, we offer the chance for our parents to find out more about the curriculum. We offer:

  • At the beginning of every school year, each class holds a "meet the teacher" session, where information about the curriculum is discussed.
  • Every term, all parents receive a curriculum newsletter explaining what their child will be taught and information about visits / visitors.
  • We hold 2 parents evenings a year. During this time childrens' progress on the new curriculum is discussed.
  • We regularly hold parent workshops which are linked to our curriculum.
  • If any parents wish to find out any more information they are advised to speak to the class teacher.
