In order to achieve our whole school intent, we have identified 3 Golden Threads that weave through our curriculum and underpin everything we do. This means that in delivering our curriculum we are embedding our school's Christian Values, developing knowledge and skills progressively over time with an ambitious and aspiring curriculum whilst immersing our children in language-rich teaching.

At Forest & Sandridge C.E. Primary School, our curriculum intent is to give children the skills to decode words in order to be able to read fluently. Our phonic teaching and learning focuses on skills and knowledge which have been planned and taught in a progressive and sequential, following the validated SSP, Rising Stars Rocket Phonics. Our aim is to ensure every child has reading fluency, comprehension and is able to apply their phonic skills in their spelling. We also strive to encourage confidence and enjoyment of reading by giving children opportunities and experiences that promote this. Phonic opportunities are also built into learning across the curriculum.
