This section of our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6. There are also sections on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development and how we promote British Values.
In line with statutory requirements, the new Curriculum was launched in September 2014, coinciding with the introduction of the new National Curriculum in England.
At Sedgefield Hardwick, we are a Read Write Inc. badge school. This means that we teach every child to read using a systematic and structured approach. Lessons focus on teaching children to decode the sounds they meet in the English language, blend these to form words and then apply these skills to read a variety of interesting books to encourage fluency and comprehension. Children are also taught to apply these sounds in their spellings and write a wide variety of texts based on the stories and non-fiction books they have read. Lessons are taught in small groups, where all the children are at the same reading stage. This ensures that they are able to access texts that meet their individual needs, allowing them to develop as confident and fluent readers. Assessment is rigorous and effective, allowing us to provide one-to-one tutoring and ensure that no child is left behind. Therefore, your child is thoroughly supported on their learning journey and can share their learning with you at home.
If you would like more detail about your child’s curriculum, please see the long term plans for each subject below. If you would like to see the specific curriculum information for your child’s class please visit our individual year group section here.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils needs.
At Sedgefield Hardwick Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report. If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
