Hanley Swan Curriculum Intent Statement
It is the intention that Hanley Swan Primary School’s curriculum provides memorable experiences and rich opportunities for high-quality learning and wider personal development and well-being. There is a successful and innovative curriculum to meet the context of the school. The curriculum has breadth and balance and provides the pupils with their full entitlement and is customised to meet the changing needs of individuals and groups. There are highly tailored programmes for a wide range of pupils with different needs.
The pupils in Reception and Year 1 receive a small group daily phonics session. At Hanley Swan we use the successful Read, Write, Inc phonics scheme.
As a Church School RE is also regarded as a key subject and is the golden thread that runs through everything that we do at Hanley Swan. Other foundation subjects are History; Geography; Music, Art, Design and Technology, Modern Foreign Language and Physical Education.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception or Class 1)
Key Stage 1 (Class 2) Year 1 & 2
