Leaders and all stakeholders have spent time collaboratively reviewing and discussing the core principles of high quality curriculum design and implementation. Educational research, local knowledge and our own school context have all been considered.
Language acquisition is the foundation of thinking and learning. Reading, vocabulary development and phonics – alongside opportunities which give real life experiences – are at the heart of our curriculum design. We have planned a coherent knowledge rich curriculum. Knowledge and skills being two sides of a coin – we know that through gaining knowledge, skills can be mastered. We have carefully considered where to position the experiences, knowledge and skills we believe our children need, in order to be successful on their learning journeys.
Our curriculum empowers teachers to deliver knowledge rich content across the wider curriculum. The sequences of learning deliver the statutory elements of the National Curriculum. Our children are given the time to master knowledge and skills. This in turn, ensures our immersive, connected curriculum leads to impact and improved outcomes for children.
Parents and carers can make an appointment with the Head of School to discuss the curriculum in more depth.
