Our Curriculum


We have just completed a long term review of our curriculum.  All teaching is based on the National Curriculum  Should you require any additional information on the curriculum please contact the school office at

office@st-michaels.e-sussex.sch.uk You may also phone the school on 01892 770307

Our aim is that all pupils will secure firm foundations in English and Mathematics as having the appropriate skills and knowledge in these areas underpins a growing excellence in other subjects.

St Michael’s Primary School, Withyham aims to provide a curriculum that is engaging, balanced and relevant. While emphasis is placed on children learning core skills in English and Maths, we place great value on developing the ‘whole child’ and provide an engaging programme of study in all curriculum areas with a focus on imaginative play and outside learning. We have a two year  cycle of coverage.  Classes are arranged as follows:

Acorn Class -Reception

Elm Class - Year 1 and 2

Silver Birch Class  - Year 3 and 4

Oak Class - Year 5 and 6

We believe in using the countryside around the school and learning outside as key part of our learning. Children access the outside areas throughout the year.

Personal Social and health Education Curriculum

We firmly believe  Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) is an important part of our curriculum.  We use Jigsaw resources to support teaching in this area.  Jigsaw uses a mindfullness approach which we hope will help support children in their well being.

We consulted families about our curriculum in March 2021 sharing the information below
