At Brookside, we teach the National Curriculum, which progresses and builds year on year and provides suitable challenge for all. We like to vary our ‘contexts for learning’, choosing current events, interests or local places as a means of inspiring and engaging the children in their learning.

You can view our school curriculum, by year group, by clicking one of the links below.

This academic year (2018/2019) we have started using a new PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) curriculum from the PSHE Association ( PSHE education is a statutory, planned, developmental programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. Further information to support parents can be found via the following links.
