The curriculum offered at Marsh Hill Primary School is in line with the Birmingham Curriculum Statement.
The Birmingham Education and Schools’ Strategy and Improvement Plan and the Birmingham Curriculum Statement are available at www.birmingham.gov.uk/educationimprovement
At Marsh Hill we use the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, National Curriculum for English, Maths and Science and incorporate the Foundation Subjects (Art and Design, Computing, Design Technology, Geography, History, Languages, Music, PSHCE and Physical Education) in conjunction with Values Education and Life Skills.
To achieve our educational aims, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which takes into account the uniqueness of each child and develops the whole child, physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.
We are an inclusive school promoting equal opportunities for all pupils, regardless of DSEN, ability, gender or race. We help children develop personal and moral values, respect for and tolerance of other cultures, races, religions and ways of life and promote their understanding of their role within the community and society as a whole.
We ensure continuity and progression from year to year, so that all children are able to perform at a high level, with conﬁdence, across the curriculum. Assessment for learning underpins all teaching and learning so that future learning is informed by the attainment of individuals.
Our curriculum is carefully scaffolded to allow for the development of essential skills - collaboration, communication, clarity of thought and expression, a logical approach to problem solving, critical evaluation and organisational skills - and positive attitudes towards lifelong learning.

To facilitate all of this we have a topic based approach, see below for the two year overview:
