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. Please see our "Curriculum Intent" tab in the sub-menu. The national curriculum 2014 is planned and delivered in breadth and 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 over a breadth of different subjects, throughout the day. The curriculum is significantly enhanced by children’s engagement in enrichment activities such as learning outdoors, special days, visits and visitors. Some aspects of the curriculum do not lend themselves as 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 our overall curriculum, which is based on shared concepts and values and begins with a "Big Question". Through this, the children are encouraged to see themselves as global citizens and advocates for good.
