The purpose of this policy statement is to confirm the staff and governors commitment to providing the children in our care with a broad and balanced curriculum which meets all the statutory requirements.
Our aim is to ensure that we provide our pupils with an enriched curriculum which will stimulate, motivate and facilitate independent learning. This statement should be read in conjunction with the school Teaching and Learning Policy, and the School Aims
We have a school Curriculum Map which you will find in the Statutory Requirements section. This outlines the taught curriculum.It shows every subject taught throughout the year. Teachers use this as a tool to planning on a medium and short-term basis. The curriculum map is reviewed every year.
The school has based the curriculum map on the following documents:
The school meets the statutory requirements.
Key Stage Two 23.5 hours
TEACHING AND LEARNING
The curriculum is taught through a variety of methods; whole class teaching, group teaching, paired and individual teaching. We believe that learning is most effective when children are given opportunities to work in different ways.
We recognise that children throughout the school have different needs. We are obliged to follow statutory curriculum requirements and we ensure that the implementation of the curriculum is always differentiated.
We have an inclusive curriculum which supports children with Special Educational Needs and the More Able child.
EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY
We recognise that our curriculum must reflect the world in which children live. Ours is a multi faith and multi cultural community and our curriculum reflects this.
We ensure that materials and books used with the children do not represent racist, sexist or homophobic stereotypes. At the same time we identify areas where stereotyping exists and make children aware.
All of the above policies can be printed off free of charge. Please ask Miss Alex Hales at reception.
