Curriculum Overview

At Great Hollands, our vibrant and relevant curriculum brings learning to life through exciting investigations and open-ended learning, providing an emphasis on both knowledge and skills to help our children develop a thirst for learning.


Our varied topics and themes compliment the discreet teaching of core skills and knowledge which our children need to become successful lifelong learners.  At Great Hollands, we offer a curriculum that is broad and balanced, offering full coverage of the national curriculum, whilst remaining flexible enough to be relevant and adaptable to meet the needs of individual learners.


Guiding children to develop their curiosity, the Great Hollands curriculum teaches our children to ask better questions and to think carefully about answers.  To ensure our children thrive in an ever-changing world, we equip them with the ability to learn, unlearn and relearn; to overcome challenges; and to learn from their mistakes.  At Great Hollands our curriculum supports children to develop the drive and resilience needed to succeed both now and in the future.


In Key Stage 1 we use the Read, Write Inc scheme to assist in the teaching of phonics.  More information about the scheme can be found at 

Our FAQ for parents about how we teach reading using the programme can be found here.
