At Bretherton we deliver the National Curriculum to all children at Key Stages 1 and 2.  The children in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

If you would like to find out more about the National Curriculum, please see below files to download. Parents are also provided with key learning documents for English, Maths and Science at Parent Evening Meetings.

The subject areas are as follows, although we try to make links between subjects and teach in a creative cross-curricular way as much as we can. Please click on a subject to see our curriculum overview.
