What does our curriculum look like?


A cross curricular approach to learning.

Topics are identified to enable cross curricular opportunities to learn knowledge and skills from National Curriculum content.

This is a start point and is subject to change in response to the pupil’s interests identified throughout the year where appropriate.  In Early Years in particular, our use of “In The Moment Planning” will make every interaction with pupils bespoke to their individual interests, rather than tied to a theme.

Progression Statements.

We have developed progression statements from Early Years through to year 6 across all subjects, from Development Matters (EYFS) and the National Curriculum.  A progression of skills and knowledge results as each year, previous learning is revisited and built upon with new learning across the curriculum.  Our progression statements can be found here.

Into the classroom.

Teachers plan lessons, activities and enrichment incorporating opportunities to talk (to promote CLL across the school), the trust values (to create character and promote PSED across the school), and opportunities to celebrate different religions, cultures and heritage to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world. We identify opportunities to enrich the learning of pupils regularly as well as celebrate the successes of learning through celebration events.
