Curriculum-Intent, Implementation and Impact

  • Encourage our children to build up resilience and a growth mind-set
  • Enable our children to develop a rich vocabulary

  • Promote children’s understanding of British Values

Our curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the children in our school. Whole school themes drive our curriculum with each year group focusing on a specific area. Our English texts and topics link where possible; this allows purposeful links to be made and opportunities to explore deeper into topics.


A yearly overview is planned for each year group and from this teachers plan using subject specific progressions. This ensures skills, knowledge and vocabulary is built upon each year and the children have opportunities to revisit and make links across all their learning.


Vocabulary is a focus for us as a school, we have introduced vocabulary progressions to support this as well as knowledge organisers. 


Subject leaders play an important part in the success of the curriculum by leading training, monitoring and evaluating their subjects. This will feed into a review of the curriculum alongside feedback from children and parents to continue to improve and engage our children in their learning.
