Here you can read details of our planning for our Curriculum .
As a member of the Affinity Teaching Schools Alliance and Discovery Schools Academy Trust, we are following the guidelines in the Affinity Curriculum overview and DSAT Curriculum statement . Wee have created Year group maps to theme our curriculum in line with this and to create meaningful learning experiences for our children, whilst maintaining our commitment to structuring progression in learning.
To support our commitment to preparing our children for their roles and responsibilities in the world, we have whole school shared key enquiry questions to enable us to link our learning with wider ranging ideas and opinions. These reflect the key aims of the International Primary Curriculum.
We will have theme events half termly to share our thinking and reasoning across key subjects and skills.
We have considered our commitment to Reading for enjoyment, key texts and genres in Literacy to ensure high quality, age appropriate texts fuel our learning. We have worked within DSAT and Affinity Teaching Schools Alliance to develop our calculation policy and Maths planning is also supported by our research work with the Mathshub to consider Mastery approaches. In 2016 we have introduced Maths Noproblem resources to support and structure this.
This year we are all working together to further develop our Curriculum alongside Assessment formats and we are committed to working reflectively to evaluate and refine our work to make sure our Curriculum grows and offers inspirational learning opportunities that inspire both children’s and adult’s curiosities.
