Curriculum

Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum.

Children in years 1 to 6 follow the National Curriculum.

At Park Street, children spend two years in each class so the curriculum content is planned on a 2-year cycle of topics.  Through exploration of the topics, the pupils will cover a variety of subjects, though each topic may have a particular subject focus.

Enrichment

To enhance the curriculum we make extensive use of local resources such as the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Folk Museum, the Botanic Gardens, Jesus Green and the River Cam and, of course, the University and its colleges.

A range of visitors provide additional expertise and opportunities: performances by touring theatre groups, orchestral concerts, visiting science students and history days. Pupils influence some of the activities through representation on the School Council, in particular fund-raising events to support local and national charities.

We also hold Enrichment Days where the whole school immerses itself in a whole day focused on a specific subject area or theme. In line with our ethos, we aim to put the fun and enjoyment into our curriculum where the school is a hive of learning activity.
