English CURRICULUM

Our curriculum is designed to give a child a range of experiences and learning that is relevant to their locality, heritage and wider global identity.  With this in mind we explored what we felt every child should experience.  We want to develop the spiritual, cultural and moral development of pupils, to make the world a better place.  The curriculum focus is based on developing a robust “body of knowledge” which children will gain during their time at school-sequencing and logic enabling progression and achievement and preventing gaps.  In teaching the curriculum we will promote fundamental British Values and a greater understanding of the world in which they live and their role within this in securing a future for everyone.  

Our curriculum will: 

  •    inspire children to learn about themselves and their place in the global community 
  •    aspire to be challenging, relevant and meaningful 
  •    achieve the best outcome for every child

Intent:  We aim to develop and support every child in achieving their best by building on their prior knowledge, inspiring their learning by linking this to the best things in their locality and world, to enable them to aspirational in wanting the best for the future - seeing themselves as part of shaping this. 

Implementation:  We will ensure all staff understand the context for the learning and the disciplines within each subject so that learning takes place in a meaningful context and ensuring it is revisited frequently so all children, no matter their starting point or background, make consistently good progress. 

Impact:  We will regularly review and evaluate the learning that is taking place through a clear understanding of age-related expectations and what this looks like first hand, in books and through learning outcomes; we will seek to ensure there is rich knowledge that enables generalisations and makes connections.  Our vision is to enable children not to want more but to be more.
