We believe that it is necessary for children to develop key skills in English and Mathematics. These skills are fundamental to progress in all subjects.

Highampton Primary School teaches the National Curriculum, in the context of the Devon Curriculum Statement, that comprises of the following areas of study: English, Maths, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education). KS2 also studies a Modern Foreign Language and Religious Education is also taught following the Devon agreed syllabus.
The school currently uses a two-year rolling programme in KS1 and a four-year rolling programme in KS2 to deliver these subjects through a topic based curriculum. Policies, long and medium term planning are available for these subjects.
