National Curriculum / Peacock Montessori Curriculum

Peacock Montessori Academy curriculum is clearly laid out with reference to the government’s attainment targets and key stages, enabling parents to clearly understand their child’s progress. Montessori education is particularly suited to achieving the cross-curriculum approach encouraged by the National Curriculum. The idea of cross-curriculum themes was originated by Dr Montessori and is achieved by regular project work encompassing and developing many different subjects at the same time.


A feature of Montessori education is that each child is continually observed and assessed by their teachers. Parents are requested to meet the teachers once per term at which point they will receive a summary of their child’s progress. There will also be a full written report on each child per year.

Competition and examination are not a part of the Montessori Method. However, older children approaching entrance examinations will be given tutorial guidance on request.
