Buxton Junior School - Helping your child become a better reader - Oct 2018

Our Curriculum

It is the aim of Buxton Junior School to create a stimulating environment in which children are actively engaged in their learning. It is a high priority of the school to develop literacy and numeracy skills. We will provide opportunities to use and apply these skills across other areas of the curriculum. Buxton Junior School is committed to ensuring that children attain the expected standard at the end of Year 6.

It is a requirement that all children should study the National Curriculum.

The subjects of the National Curriculum are as follows:

Core subjects:

English, Mathematics, Science
