At Rivacre Valley we provide all children with a broad curriculum that is rich in opportunities and experiences. Please see our School Ethos document for more detail.
Please contact the school office if you would like further information about our school's curriculum.
Reading / Phonics
At Rivacre Valley we use Read, Write Inc to teach Phonics and use a variety of reading schemes to support our teaching of reading. This phonics scheme is taught across Early Years and Key Stage 1 and used as a catch up scheme in KS2.
Sexual Education / PSHE / SMSC
We follow the Christopher Winter Programme in Years 1 - 6 covering all aspects of Sexual Education.
We use our 'Rivacre Dinosaurs' in promoting the life skills needed for our children to take forward in their lives beyond the school gates. (See the British Values tab for more deatils of this)
In helping to promote and support our children's wellbeing, we follow the My Happy Mind program across all year groups. We are "Preparing today’s children for tomorrow's world by building resilient, balanced and happy minds at home and school".
We employ specialist teachers to deliver music, gymnastics and dance
From Y1 to Y6 all children learn to swim and spend a half term each year visiting the local pool on a weekly basis.
We enhance our curriculum with educational visits and residential visits (Burwardsley or Beeston Y4, PGL Y5 and London Y6)
Each class will update their class page at the start of each term to give more detailed information.
