Curriculum and Assessment at Woodfield

As all of our pupils are working cognitively within the first five years of life, we use the Early Years Foundation Stage, SCERTS and Routes for Learning to sequence our teaching and learning across the school. Our learning is topic based by half term, with an opening and closing event for each topic.
