Curriculum Rationale

Statement of Intent

‘Our curriculum reflects both the needs and interests of our children. It intends to give them a broader understanding of themselves, their community and the wider world. Our curriculum will teach children to be able to transfer the strategies, skills and knowledge that they have learnt; they will take ownership of the learning process from one year to the next in order to build a successful life.’

We incorporate explicit teaching of learning behaviours and Christian and British values into our curriculum to ensure that our pupils are prepared for life in modern Britain whatever their starting points.

The skills and knowledge covered by each year group in each subject are given in our  ‘Progression Ladder’ documents. These show how we build on Children’s Knowledge and skills each year. In order that they leave our school in year 6 with the knowledge, understanding and skills (cultural capital) that they need to build successful futures.
