Information About Our Curriculum
Children are taught within the framework of the National Curriculum, ensuring progress and development throughout the school. At Bishop Henderson School we provide a creative, relevant and exciting curriculum and achieve high standards. We are currently introducing an enquiry led curriculum using the 'Curious City' approach. National Curriculum subject objectives from Science, History, Geography, Art & Design, Design & Technology and Music are woven through enquiries as can be seen on the Whole School Overview of Enquiries below. This enquiry led approach enables teachers to inspire learners with local people, places and stories relevant to the school's locality.
This structure also provides opportunities to respond to the ever changing world.
Reading and Phonics
We use Bug Club and Phonics Bug as our main reading and phonics schemes throughout the school. Children have individual reading books chosen from the appropriate book band and participate in daily guided reading sessions in class.
