Our Curriculum

Our school offers a broad and balanced curriculum which aims to maximise the connections between different subjects, allowing teaching and learning to be carried out within a meaningful context.

Mount Charles School meets the requirements of the National Curriculum (2014) and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.

Information on the Sex Education programme can be found in this policy.

Our curriculum is designed to actively promote fundamental British values.
