Our curriculum is designed to match the
requirements of the National Curriculum and the
Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, building on the children’s
starting points and preparing them for key end points. Alongside this,
our school curriculum offers wider experiences and opportunities to
meet the needs of every child and to prepare them for successful
lives in our rapidly changing world.
Our curriculum is planned to offer:
Skills and knowledge in each of the discrete subjects which are identified and mapped out across each year group.
Breadth and depth across the curriculum for all children, fulfilling their entitlement to experience wide and interconnected learning opportunities.
Learning is organised into cross-curricular themes that engage interest and allow children to explore and develop links between curriculum areas to create holistic and embedded understanding.
A clear structure, based on research about how children learn best and transfer learning into their long term memory.
An inclusive curriculum that is accessible and allows all learners to succeed and grow.
Reading as a cornerstone in our curriculum, and early reading and reading are promoted and threaded through all subjects.
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development in each curriculum subject.
The promotion of the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, liberty, respect and tolerance across the whole curriculum.
Bespoke curriculum opportunities reflecting the make-up of our cohorts and our strengths as a school, addressing gaps in cultural capital so that everyone can make the most of our curriculum offer. For example, a clear focus on oracy development, an established House System and events facilitating cross-phase work and the maximisation of opportunities that utilise the local area and groups.
