Curriculum

Curriculum

"The curriculum provides children with numerous exciting and memorable learning experiences."   (Ofsted 2016)
 

We take great care to ensure breadth and balance, with every opportunity taken to enrich the curriculum through first hand experience. Our aim is for a curriculum which maintains high expectations and standards and increases motivation and enjoyment of pupils and staff.

"The school has broadened my child's horizons." (Parent)

Teachers plan creatively developing exciting and motivating topic-based sequences of learning which take account of pupil interests and always incorporate frequent opportunities to apply basic skills; for example, writing a diary entry in the role of an evacuee, instructions to capture Beowulf or using line graphs to predict the size of a moon crater!

The National Curriculum 2013 is used as a framework for teaching. This includes the following subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Art and Design, Computing, Geography, History, Languages, Music and Physical Education. We use a combination of 'Letters and Sounds' and 'Jolly Phonics' to support the teaching of phonics. We also use the Leeds Agreed syllabus to support teaching of Religious Education (RE) and the Leeds Scheme of Work for Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) including SRE.
