At Loxford Primary Phase, we aim to help pupils make meaningful connections in their learning. To that end, we have devised a themed curriculum, in which the different National Curriculum subjects are taught through a particular theme. Of course, we are aware of the danger of ‘tenuous’ links and we ensure that Maths and English – whilst sometimes present in themed work – are also taught daily as separate subjects. Similarly, Science, P.E. and Music are taught separately as well as within themes.

Year 6 Swimming Competency
- 35% of Y6 pupils are able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
- 84% of children can use a range of strokes effectively.
- At the beginning of the year, 83% of Y6 children had never swam before therefore the main focus was to get pupils confident just being in the water. This impacted on the teaching of safe self-rescue in different water based situations.
