Forge provides a broad and balanced curriculum through a topic work approach in keeping with the Northern Ireland Curriculum. This enables children to receive the breadth and balance required to educate and prepare them for life. Schemes for literacy and numeracy are structured to promote independent and co-operative learning at a suitable level and pace for each child.

Teachers plan together to develop schemes and lessons that deliver the Northern Ireland Curriculum using the most suitable teaching and learning methods.

Our short film 'Our Learning' features teachers and pupils talking about the curriculum at Forge and gives an insight into some of our work.
