We pride ourselves in providing our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning.
We deliver the curriculum using a thematic and cross curricular approach. This creates opportunities for learners to immerse themselves in topics and supports the development of a wide range of skills, knowledge and understanding within a meaningful and inspiring context. The national curriculum 2014 is planned and delivered with rigour to ensure that there is a high focus on developing key skills. The children are taught skills in Maths and English through tightly focussed, short, sharp teaching sequences and then opportunities to rehearse and revisit these skills are carefully woven into the learning experiences that take place throughout the day. The curriculum is significantly enhanced by children’s engagement in enrichment activities such as learning outdoors, special days, visits and visitors to name a few. Some aspects of the curriculum do not lend themselves well to teaching within a topic and where this is the case they are planned as discrete lessons which may be blocked.
The school subscribes to the local authority PSHE service and delivers the recommended units of work for PSHE from their published scheme. RE is taught using the Cambridgeshire agreed syllabus. Both RE and PSHE are central to the overall curriculum but can be taught discretely or within topics.
The curriculum maps are currently under review and will be published shortly.
