At Gurney Pease Academy we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum through the delivery of Religious Education and the National Curriculum.

Our curriculum has been designed to best meet the needs of all of our children, in addition to meeting the needs of the National Curriculum.

Each subject area is well planned and monitored to ensure progression and continuity of learning for all pupils across the school. As a school, we follow the National Curriculum for Maths and English from Year 1 to Year 6. 

Maths lessons are focused around key objectives from the appropriate year group and the activities given for independent work differentiated as necessary.

Each week, classes in KS2 deliver English lessons with a specific focus. Children have a lesson on developing comprehension skills, a lesson with a focus upon spelling, grammar and punctuation and further lessons each week which build up to a piece of writing. written work is often based around the class text or topic.
