At Ashby Fields Primary School we aim to provide a rich curriculum that inspires our children to delve deeper in to their learning at school and at home.


Learning at AFPS is topic based covering a wide range of subject areas and teaching is tailored to meet the needs of all the children. Although we provide a wide range of curriculum areas children are expected to learn a set of key skills in every year group, we call these our 'Non-Negotiables’. These Non-negotiables defined in the following documents. For more information on other aspect of the curriculum please visit our Class Pages.

To develop our younger learners knowledge of phonic we use a scheme called Read Write Inc.

Teachers and support staff work with small groups using the resources linked to the scheme to help support phonics and early writing across Key Stage 1.

To help support mental arithmetic AFPS uses Rainbow Maths targets. These differentiated, personalised targets are practised and tested weekly to improve the rapid recall of number bounds, multiplication facts and applied mental methods.
Developed by the Phase leaders at AFPS the VCTP Flap identifies the different aspects of grammar, punctuation and vocabulary choice to help our children to become independent writers.
