The Bishop Henderson Curriculum 

Our curriculum is currently going through a period of development, to ensure that it continues to be creative, challenging and specific to our school context, whilst also ensuring coverage of the curriculum in a school with ever changing year group numbers and class structures.   

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, engaging and relevant curriculum that achieves high standards and gives our children a solid foundation becoming global citizens.  

Though based on the National Curriculum using objectives from Science, History, Geography, Art & Design, Design & Technology and Music, the Bishop Henderson Curriculum weaves in an enquiry led approach that 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 Unlocking Letters and Sounds 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.
