At Micklem Primary School we have both a nursery and a reception class - each led by a qualified teacher. Our curriculum goals represent the ambition we have for our children to prepare them for the next stage of their education. Our long term plan identifies how we sequence the essential knowledge required to reach our curriculum goals. All children, at the end of reception are assessed in line with the Early Learning Goals through the Early Years Profile. Our curriculum will adapt to the needs and the interests of our children and their families. Consequently our long term is a working document. Our curricular goals reflects our ambition for the children.
