Curriculum by Subject

Our vision translates directly into our curriculum in that;

LOVE

Our curriculum promotes a love and appreciation of life and learning in all its fullness, enabling children to realise a passion for the possible.

 LEARN

Our curriculum enables children to learn and retain a body of knowledge to which they can develop and apply key critical thinking and communication skills becoming creative, confident and enquiring learners.

THRIVE

Building on their strengths, interest and experiences our curriculum enables children to grow and flourish both academically, socially and emotionally experiencing success in a range of situations and contexts.

 

Curriculum equity and implementing a rich, relevant and coherently sequenced curriculum based on the breadth and depth of the Primary National Curriculum is important in order that our children Learn and Thrive.

The value we place on each subject is demonstrated by the importance we place on subject leadership. Following a trial in 2018-2019 in September 2019 we moved to a position of one subject leader for each subject across the federation thus allowing subject leaders to focus solely on one rather than multiple subjects.

Our school development plan prioritises supporting subject leaders to develop curriculum provision for their subject.

Subjects leaders have produced rationales for each subject outlining the core purpose and intent of each subject as well as explaining its uniqueness as a subject and how it supports and compliments learning across the curriculum.
