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.
Parents Information Sheets – Maths and English end of year expectations.
We follow the Dioceses of Leeds and York Diocesan Syllabus for Religious Education.
Our Curriculum Plans give information about the breadth of the curriculum that our pupils enjoy. We use a thematic approach and links that exist between subjects and across the year.
For the teaching of phonics, we use Read, Write Inc.
For the teaching of French we use ‘la Jollie Ronde schemes of work’. Please ask at school if you would like to find out more. Alternatively, more information can be seen on their website https://www.language-resources.co.uk/french-resources
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.
