The National Curriculum
At Hook Lane we follow the DfE National Curriculum in England for Key stages 1 and 2. This is a statutory programme of study and attainment targets for all subjects taught in the Primary phase.
The national curriculum aims to provide all pupils with "the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens". As the minimum requirement, it sets out a core knowledge which forms the grounding onto which our teachers build the children's knowledge, understanding and skills through their exciting and stimulating lessons and our wider school curriculum.

The School Curriculum
Our aim is to provide all pupils with a stimulating learning environment and to offer a broad, balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society; and which prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
At Hook Lane we have developed a creative curriculum in which the statutory national curriculum is delivered through themed topics. This allows teachers to broaden and expand the children's knowledge, skills and understanding in contexts which compliment both the children's interests and the national curriculum content.
It is a compulsory requirement of the national curriculum that religious education is taught at every key stage and all schools are required to make provision for a "daily act of collective worship". At Hook Lane we follow the Bexley Agreed Syllabus for R.E.
