What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.


At Balliol, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance and the National Curriculum when planning learning experiences.

Our curriculum is driven by the school's aims statement and we hope that children will leave Balliol with many happy memories where learning was at its best because it was exciting, motivating and very well-matched to the children's needs and interests. Our curriculum gives children opportunities to learn, build on and develop new skills. Children are exposed to a range of subjects and activities that allow them to experience different topics and learning styles.


On this page, you will be able to find out more about our approach to the curriculum and more about what your child will be covering in the current term. You can also find out more by visiting each classes individual page in the children's section of the website.
