Foundation Subjects


The remaining subjects, Art, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Languages, and Music are wherever possible taught through our topics.

If you look at the Parents Guide to the National Curriculum you will be able to see what your child will cover during their time at Morton Primary School.

If you have any questions about the curriculum coverage please pop in and discuss this with your child's class teacher or alternatively see the head to discuss this.
