Key Information


At Robert Shaw, we are excited to be launching our new curriculum in September 2018, which will enable our pupils to take part in and learn about new topics through a ‘big question’ approach.

Throughout the next academic year, there will be many opportunities for all pupils to work together on topics and themes such as Nottingham, Remembrance and Shakespeare.

As a school, we will continue to teach phonics and reading using the Read, Write Inc programme.  All pupils in Early Years and Key Stage One will receive a daily phonics lesson.  Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like more information about reading and phonics, or follow this link to the Read, Write Inc website.

Robert Shaw follows the National Curriculum 2014, aims to meet the curriculum objectives through a creative and engaging topic based approach.
