Forest View's curriculum has been built around the school's local community and meets the requirements of the national curriculum. Whole school topics provide children with purposeful learning activities which are designed to excite and engage children in their learning. The school upholds the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those from different beliefs and faiths through all that it does and teaches children to respect each other.


The school uses a number of reading schemes throughout the school. The main whole school scheme is Project X (published by Oxford University Press). This is split into three main schemes: Project X Origins, Project X Alien Adventures and Project X Phonics. To support this the school uses Project X Code for intervention programmes. Overviews of these reading schemes can be seen by clicking on the links below.


The children at Forest View Primary School take part in high-quality phonics sessions every day. They are assessed regularly to check their progress and are then grouped accordingly. We teach phonics using the Ruth Miskin Literacy Programme ‘Read Write Inc’. This programme teaches children to decode words phonetically by introducing them to different phonemes (sounds) step by step. The children begin with set 1 sounds and as they learn their sounds they also learn to blend them to read words. As the children progress they are introduced to more unfamiliar sounds and alternative spellings, known as set 2 and set 3 sounds. The course structure can be found below.
