Curriculum Statement

We provide a broad based curriculum throughout the school, within which there is an emphasis on the learning of the basic skills in Language (speaking, listening, reading, writing and spelling) and Mathematics, relevant to the needs of a continually changing society.

Our curriculum ensures that pupils have a wide range of opportunities to visit local places of interest, events and learn outside the confines of the classroom. Strong links with artists, professionals, industries, other schools and contrasting communities ensure that activities are rich and varied. School camps and Forest School offer pupils adventurous activities and environmental studies (woodland, beach, moors) as well as community living under canvas!

There are a wide range of clubs, including sports and arts clubs, as well as cookery, animal, speakeasy, creative writing, reading, science and gardening, and more. The school holds the Artsmark Gold Award for art, drama, dance and music, the Sports Activemark and the Healthy Schools Award.

We endeavour to develop the full potential of every individual in all aspects of school life, along with a fundamental and continual striving to raise standards in all areas.

At Indian Queens School we use the Jolly Phonics scheme to teach phonics. If you would like any further information about this (or any other aspect of the school's curriculum) please contact your child's class teacher or the school (via the contact on this website).
