All classes follow a weekly timetable.

  • Phonics, English and mathematics are taught daily in all classes.
  • PE is taught twice per week
  • Assemblies takes place several times a week – this follows a timetable of weekly religious themes and our school values.
  • All other curriculum subjects are taught over the course of each term, ensuring that all children receive a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • At English Martyrs we also include a wide variety of additional experiences through external organisations, for example the Schools Music Service.
