School Curriculum

Intent

We believe in providing a broad, balanced, knowledge rich curriculum that ensures an inclusive approach and where pupils develop the skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence. Our curriculum provides opportunities for our pupils to develop as independent, confident and successful learners with high aspirations.

‘Having a wider knowledge will help me get a better job in life’ Cayden, Y2

As a school we pride ourselves on being part of our local community, so we want our pupils to become educated citizens and appreciate their part in securing a safe and happy sense of community; locally, nationally and globally.

‘We are very involved with our local community. Elderly people volunteer their time to listen to us read and our choir goes and sings with them. It's fun hearing their feedback and seeing their smiles.’ Gus, Y5

Our curriculum will develop children’s problem solving skills along with their resilience. They are encouraged to embrace their mistakes learning from them, thus creating memorable learning experiences.

‘I enjoy learning in school and making friends. Being taught new things is fun and even if I get it wrong, I know I can have another go. It makes me feel like I can do it all.’ Joseph, Y3

Implementation

Our curriculum is planned and sequenced so that our pupils can achieve depth of thinking and learning. Across each year group, a number of high quality, age appropriate core texts are used to bring topics to life for our children and to promote a connection with their learning. Through our knowledge, understanding and skills we aim to develop our children’s ability to reflect, evaluate and apply their learning.

The knowledge, understanding and skills are reflected through the objectives identified in each curriculum area. There is an equality of subjects taught to ensure that the curriculum is relevant and consists of learning that really matters to the pupils.

Central to developing the pupils’ learning is a focus on vocabulary and this ensures understanding, enabling our pupils to express themselves and write with confidence.

‘New words make me giggly’ Sarah, Y4

Sequences of lessons are carefully crafted around an authentic outcome which allows children to become agents of change. These outcomes are evaluated by a ‘critical audience’; these are either a specialist in the field that the children are learning about, or an opportunity to celebrate learning on a platform linked to their topic. These learning opportunities allow children the opportunity to develop 21st century skills such as research, collaboration, innovation, presentation, evaluation and reflection.

‘We have a close relationship with our local Royal British Legion. I enjoy our community outreach working alongside the ex-service people. It’s purposeful and makes them feel valued and less lonely.’ Alfie, Y6.

The learning journeys are active, engaging and inspiring leading to a deeper understanding of the topics and curriculum areas. The authentic outcomes drive motivation, determination and commitment within our children.

Our curriculum ensures that we develop well rounded citizens with a clear understanding of values such as compassion, responsibility and friendship. Our new curriculum addresses negative stereotyping through investigating similarities and differences, and promoting acceptance, diversity, citizenship and human rights.

Impact

Through authentic outcomes, pupils are given the opportunity to demonstrate the progress the knowledge and skills they have acquired.

‘We designed and made Pudding Lane. Then a fireman set it on fire. It was sad and made me think how the Great Fire of London people felt.’ Jemima, Y1

The pupils’ books will clearly demonstrate the progress they have made and the knowledge they have gained. We ensure that our children’s attainment and progress are in line, or exceeding, their potential.

Children will be able to talk clearly and knowledgeably about their learning and make clear links between pieces of learning across the curriculum.

Pupils will continue to make good progress and attain well at the end of each Key Stage.

Pupils with SEND achieve the best possible outcomes and acquire knowledge and skills for life. Adapted learning resources ensure that they can fully engage with learning intention.

Pupils are able to use what they have learned and can show that they remember what they have learned in a variety of ways.

Pupils who do not have age appropriate reading fluency, number or writing skills will be heavily supported to narrow or eradicate gaps in their learning.

We use regular and robust triangulated monitoring to gauge the impact of our curriculum design. Leaders at all levels review learning, talk with our children and provide feedback to move practice forward.

Pupils transition confidently to secondary school as they will be self-reliant, know how to organise their learning and manage their time, how to research, evaluate and identify the next steps in their learning journey. Through leadership roles, pupils will develop a sense of personal responsibility.

'The workshop challenges are really fun because you are learning while having fun. You learn lots about teamwork and achievement’ Sam, Y5
