An Overview of our Curriculum
What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum and individual subjects here.
We have worked with our LAT colleagues to create a curriculum influenced by cognitive and neuroscience research which addresses the requirements of the National curriculum and meets the needs of our children.
With many of our children having English as an additional language alongside low vocabulary levels in the early years it is vital that Oracy is a central tenet of our curriculum. Serving a vibrant multicultural community our curriculum also seeks to promote respect and tolerance for all.
We strive to provide the children with a range of learning experiences that develop their knowledge, challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning. The design of our curriculum is built on a solid foundation of key knowledge and concepts that seeks to develop their long term learning and memory as well as to empower children, encourage, inspire and support them to achieve their potential.The construction of our curriculum aims to enable pupils to build on previous learning through revisiting and extending understanding of key concepts, to remember and recall information and to apply knowledge beyond discrete subjects to create a rounded and broad knowledge base and extended schema of understanding.
Our curriculum design is grounded by key subject drivers. These are History and Geography as well as core Science, Maths and English. Careful positioning of topics across the school year enables teachers to take deep dives into other subjects, eg DT and Art.
Every child has the opportunity to shine! Every child has the chance to engage with the school curriculum and extra curricular opportunities, personalising where necessary to make the curriculum accessible for those with disabilities , special educational needs or to address gaps in learning.
If you have further questions about any aspect of our curriculum, please see your class teacher in the first instance.
See individual subjects for specific topic information for each year group.
We also take part in the Children’s University to further support our curriculum, raise aspirations and increase opportunities for our children.
