National curriculum

Curriculum Intent

We follow the Development Matters in EYFS (Nursery and Reception) and the   National Curriculum September 2014   in KS1 and KS2 (Years 1 to 6)  for the statutory  requirements of what to teach and then as a staff we create a curriculum that is relevant to our pupils.  For Phonics we use Letters and Sounds.

For more information about the National Curriculum that we are following, please visit the Department for Education (DfE) website by clicking here

Religious Education (RE)

Our aim for religious education is to learn about and learn from different religions and beliefs. We want children to know that their own belief systems and those of others are valued and respected. We encourage children to share their knowledge and experience with others. You have the right to withdraw your child from R.E. lessons should you wish, but we would like you to come and talk to us about this before finalising your decision. We are follwoing the Ealing RE scheme of work which is currently under review. 


Personal, HEALTH, Sociala nd economic  Education (PHSE) & Citizenship

In PSHE children learn ways of becoming healthier, more independent and more responsible members of society.  Children are encouraged and taught to identify and articulate feelings and emotions, learn to manage new and difficult situations positively and form and maintain effective relationships with a wide range of people.  PSHE helps children to feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives.  Through active learning opportunities, pupils recognise and manage risk, take increasing responsibility for themselves, their choices and behaviours and make positive contributions to their families, schools and communities.

At West Acton we follow the Ealing Scheme of Work for PSHE  and working closely with the Local Authority on incorporating changes to the RSE modules of the curriculum.


French, Pe and Music 

These subjects are taught by specialist teachers for the class teacher PPA time once a week.
