Branching out and growing together
Our curriculum is organised as part of a rolling programme of topics to reflect the mixed nature of year groups we teach. Each topic contains a coverage of key skills and breadth across the curriculum, which enables links to be made across subjects - promoting creativity and enjoyment for all children. We use the National Curriculum as the definitive guide to ensure coverage of the curriculum. We strive for excellence at all times, aiming to inspire and motivate all children through the way in which we teach.
We teach all National Curriculum statutory subjects – English, Maths, Science, ICT, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, PE and Music + Religious Education. In addition, we teach Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Forest School throughout the school. Pupils are taught swimming and French at KS2.
We structure and plan the curriculum to ensure that good practice remains central, equality of opportunity is ensured and we integrate the requirements National Curriculum into our topics, projects and subject teaching.
We have formulated a series of guidelines and schemes of work designed to aid the delivery of the National Curriculum. These guidelines are used by staff when planning both over the whole year and termly. It enables us to ensure a balance of learning across the school.
Each term/half-term every class chooses an overall topic, divided into units of work, to deliver the curriculum. Each topic is planned and developed using the National Curriculum, as well as school policies and guidelines. From the termly/half-termly plan staff prepare weekly timetables for the class to deliver concepts and skills. The teacher prepares differentiated activities for each of the subjects and through on-going assessment and record keeping, addresses the needs of all the children. Yearly plans can be accessed below for each class.
Here are some of the topics covered within Key Information.
