St George's uses Learning Walls to asses pupil progress under the new National Curriculum.
The school plans using the Early Learning Goals for Early Years and Foundation Stage and objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2. Teachers from years 2-6 use the scheme “Read Write Inc. Literacy & Language” (RWI). RWI meets the demands of the new National Curriculum in a fun and meaningful way. It is a complete literacy programme addressing the grammar and punctuation aspects of the new statutory assessments and raising attainment for all children. Drama and discussion are an integral part of the scheme. It also includes stimulating texts pitched at the correct level for each year group.
KS1 and Foundation stage teachers use Letters and Sounds as the basis for their phonics planning. KS2 teachers plan spelling sessions using the 2014 National Curriculum for spelling.
