This school’s curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Clapham Manor is committed to meeting the requirements of the Early Years and Primary National Curriculums. These form one part of the school curriculum and defines programmes of study for English, Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology, Computing, History, Geography, Art and Design, Languages [at Key Stage 2] Music and Physical Education, all of which are statutory. These publications and related materials are available at our school or can be found at www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum. Our yearly overviews reflect the content and challenge of that curriculum.
