In Year 1-6, each class works from the IPC (International Primary Curriculum). This is a scheme which covers many Foundation subjects including Science, History, Geography, Music, Art and D.T. The IPC also contains an ‘International strand’ which encourages pupils to think not just of their local environment, but across the world. Teachers also adapt planning to ensure that it is personal to our school, making links to Forest School, Food Growing and The ARC .
Whilst our Reception class do not follow the IPC Curriculum, they follow a themed curriculum which makes links to the EYFS curriculum. Topics include: Celebrations, Superheroes and Traditional Tales.

At Greenvale, we use the 2Simple Purple Mash scheme of work. Where possible, links are made across the curriculum to ensure continuity across subjects. The school has an ICT suite, 16 iPads and 32 Chromebooks. The school use Google Classroom for online work, both within and outside of school.
As a school, we use the Croydon scheme of work for Religious Education at Greenvale. This focusses on the 6 main faiths including Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Sikhism and Buddhism, as well as considering some of the main festivals that take place throughout the year.
In Reception and Key Stage 1, teachers use Real PE; a story-based resource which promotes not only health and fitness, but develops children's personal, social, cognitive, physical, creative ability.
In Key Stage 2, teachers use the Twinkl Move planning scheme as an overview to the teaching of PE. The school buy into the Croydon Sports Partnership who provide support and advice to the school in relation to the teaching of PE.
