NATIONAL CURRICULUM

Our Vision

Our curriculum aims to engage and inspire learners by providing them with the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed. Highly stimulating topics, a rigorous iterative approach, and a clearly sequenced build up means that our curriculum is accessible to all. 
Our approach is ambitious as we understand the need for children to retain knowledge and build upon prior learning. We aim to prepare each pupil with the necessary attributes they need for the next step in their academic journey. 
Our aim is to create independent learners who love a challenge.

 Whole School Long Term Plan 2020-2021

 

The DFE state the National Curriculum will:
  • Provide a national framework for children

  • Help meet the needs of all children

  • Encourage all children to do the best they can

  • Enable parents to know more about their child’s progress.

Children are tested (S.A.T.S) towards the end of Key Stage One (Year 2) and Key Stage Two (Year 6). These results are reported to parents. From June 2012 Year One children now sit a nationwide reading test.

 

Foundation Subjects:  

English, Mathematics, Science and ICT are seen as the ‘core’ to help children study all other subjects. Obviously the National Curriculum is only part of the total workin school for your child.

Health Education, Drama and other areas are also covered.
Many of these subjects are closely linked and most of our teaching is done through a thematic or topic based approach to ensure a cross-curricular balance
