Rimon has a broad and ambitious curriculum because we want our children to be challenged and engaged with what they are learning, across all subjects. We have introduced an innovative and forward thinking Retrieval Programme, which ensures that the children are able to retain and recall what they learn for years to come.
In the Reception Class we use the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum that encompasses communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.

We follow the national curriculum for Key Stage One (Years One and Two) and Key Stage Two (Years Three to Six). Pupils are taught English (reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar), mathematics, science, history, geography, PSHE (personal, social and health education), PE, art, music and current affairs. Pupils in Year Three attend weekly swimming lessons and pupils in Year Four learn the recorder.
Rimon has an integrated curriculum that endeavours to use best practice across all areas of study. Meaning that a history and science lessons are also opportunities to develop reading and writing skills. Topics are linked to British and Jewish values wherever possible.
“It is clear that pupils are making strong progress in all year groups. This is largely due to the implementation of a strong curriculum and effective teaching.”
