Following the introduction of the new National Curriculum, the team at Elmhurst has worked hard to develop a curriculum which adheres to the National Curriculum but which doesn’t lose the Elmhurst curriculum and the elements that make learning special and unique for our children. The curriculum is still in development for the academic year 2019 and will be finalised ready for 2020.
All the classes within a year group work on the same project, sharing resources and ideas and planning shared trips and visitors. We believe that, in order to engage fully with their learning, the curriculum needs to be set in a context which is accessible for our children.
