Our approach to the curriculum is through a thematic/topic based approach underpinned by the accelerated learning approach to teaching and learning. The key concepts, principles and themes from the National Curriculum have been developed into a range of progressive knowledge & skills through which the children are helped to grow and develop to succeed in 21st century Britain. This skills-based curriculum with an emphasis on knowledge acquisition allows a creative way of teaching and learning, enabling us to move away from discrete lessons into a more meaningful, engaging, topic-based approach for the curriculum.
The curriculum we offer is designed to meet the needs of all our pupils by providing purposeful contexts which engage our children. It is rich, varied, imaginative and ambitious and meets the needs of individual learners but can easily be adapted for pupils with additional needs. Through regular assessment, tasks are matched to the ability of each child through differentiated activities, adult support, providing a level of challenge that is stimulating for pupils and questioning skills.
To ensure correct coverage over time, cohort maps are filled in to ensure breadth of study across school.
