Curriculum Design

We have designed schemes of work for each subject to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum. Each subject is taught discreetly through the course of a year. Some subjects are blocked into half termly units to help children become invoiced in their learning. 

This happens through rotations of history/geography, design and technology/art and music and modern foreign languages.

Points that have influenced our curriculum

  • Coverage of the National Curriculum
  • Maintain a balance of strands within subject across each school year
  • Develop knoweldge, skills and understanding over time

 Within units of work we aim to:

  • Engage all children in their learning
  • Develop children's vocabulary and language
  • Broaden the children's experiences and horizons
  • Promote the children's personal development through good behaviour for learning

Because we are a small school, we have a rolling programme to accommodate our mixed aged classes. This means that, over time, the children cover the whole curriculum and avoid repetition. This does present some challenges, such as not teaching history chronologically and having to consider the complexities of some science concepts.
