Departments & Subjects

Curriculum

Bramcote Junior School educates children aged 3 to 11. From Reception to Year 3, the children are class-based with one teacher specifically trained for that age group. They have the majority of their lessons with their teacher in the mornings, but a number of subject specialists take them for Art, French, Music, ICT and Games. From Year 4 to Year 6 children are taught by subject specialists.

The curriculum is broad, comprising: English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, Religious Studies, ICT, Art, Design and Technology, Music, PSHE, Games and Swimming.

The school is equipped with specialist classrooms and facilities for Art and Design, ICT, Science, Music, Physical Education and Swimming, as well as having its own sports fields.

Infant Department

Children in the Infant department learn in an environment where they have room to grow and develop freely. We see every child as an individual, and focus on their differing strengths. Teaching takes place in small classes with their main teacher, where they learn core curriculum subjects. Specialist teachers teach subjects as diverse as French, music and swimming, starting with the Reception class. You will find us in our own secure department, which includes a Library, within the larger school. We use to their full potential large green spaces, an auditorium for plays and games, and an up to date ICT suite.

Sport is incredibly important for our children. From Reception, children participate in a full range of appropriate games and activities, including athletics and gymnastics. We have access to wonderful grounds at the Bramcote Sports Complex and the indoor swimming pool, as well as the Deepdale playing fields.

Education doesn’t stop in the classroom. We feel it is important that children learn through experience; visiting museums, attending the theatre and taking part in local events. After school activities are always popular, including activities such as recorder club, football, art and modelling.

Our children move up school as happy, confident learners. Do come and visit us!
