The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Our Curriculum

In line with the Education Act (2002): Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society,
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
For further details, please see the National Curriculum in England: Framework document on the DfE website.
Under the subject buttons below you will find more detailed information about how we teach specific subjects at Petham. You can visit your child's class page for curriculum maps, expectations and more information about what they are getting up to in class.
