Why our ABC Curriculum?
In 2019, staff reviewed the curriculum they delivered and wanted a curriculum that is bespoke to our children and community. We are delighted to display our provision for our ABC Curriculum. We have ensured that it is; Attaining, Aspirational, Broad, Balanced, Creative and Challenging developing the Growth Mindset of every child.
Each year group has produced an ‘Overview Jigsaw’, which shows the knowledge based curriculum and can be seen by clicking on the class link below. More information on the subjects can be found following ‘Curriculum Subjects’ link on the Key Information menu bar, where the Intent, Implementation and Impact are explained for each.
Power of Reading is the driving force to deliver our English Curriculum and the books chosen generally initiate the theme for the class for the half term. The Phonics scheme we will use from September 2022 is Supersonic Phonics. Maths sees teachers deliver the curriculum through using Hamilton Trust, White Rose (especially to challenge the Greater Depth children) and Testbase. Home learning is supported through the use of Mathletics.
Science also uses Hamilton Trust. ICT is delivered through the Purple Mash scheme and PSHE we use the Jigsaw scheme. In History, Geography, Art and DT we use the End Point Curriculum to deliver the lessons. PE is delivered by EdStart using the PE mentoring and coaching scheme. Spanish is delivered by a specialist Spanish teacher from Lingotot teaching Year 2 through to Year 6. Finally, in Music we use the Charanga programme to deliver the lessons.
In this area of the website, you will also find our Social Learning Curriculum and an overview of the Collective Worship themes. Our Social Learning Curriculum includes the Relationships Education Programme of Study and the Personal and Social aspects of the curriculum. You can also see where each of the learning objectives will be taught in school. After careful consideration the school has decided not to teach sex education explicitly although the school nurse will come into school to teach Year 6 about puberty before they move to High SchooI.
