Our Curriculum

Curriculum information 

Our school is an exciting place to learn.  Our vision is to give every child coming into our school an education they enjoy which prepares them for academic and personal success now and in the future. 

The aim of our curriculum is to provide a broad and balanced subject range which challenges, engages and children enjoy learning. 

Our Curriculum 

Cornerstones Curriculum 

This is an exciting topic based curriculum, with pupil engagement and creativity at its heart.  Each unit lasts for a complete half term and across the course of time all aspects of the National Curriculum are covered. 

This programme embraces most curriculum subjects giving pupils a rounded learning experience where all of the subjects of the curriculum are interlinked. 

Mathematics 

In addition to the Cornerstones curriculum, we also have our White Rose Maths curriculum.  This supports our discrete teaching of maths and ensures the children are able to access different levels of challenge and depth of application. We also give children the opportunity to learn and practice key maths skills daily in a short guided maths session.  We promote the use and understanding of maths throughout our curriculum, encouraging children to use and apply their skills in science, geography, history, design technology and art.  

English 

We use Talk for Writing and quality key texts to help develop the skills of spoken language, reading and writing in accordance with the National Curriculum.  Children get exciting opportunities to write for a range of purposes, applying their grammatical handwriting and spelling skills. 

Our prime approach to early reading is phonics taught through the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds. This builds the children's understanding of how words are constructed.  Children learn how to put sounds together to make complete words and then how to break words apart to spell them.  We teach children to develop comprehension skills to ensure that they understand what they read and develop skills of inference, deduction and factual retrieval.  Through reading a range of text types, the children are taught comprehension skills such as summarising, predicting, inferring and retrieving.  We are keen to develop children's vocabulary and consequently the use of thesauruses and dictionaries is encouraged.  The children have access to a wide range of texts which they are able to take home and share with their families.   

Handwriting and Spelling 

We have high expectations of our pupils' spelling and presentation. By Upper Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to use pen for the majority of their writing, using a practical, fluid handwriting style. From Year 3 to Year 6 we use No Nonsense Spelling for accuracy in spelling the 1000 high frequency words. 

PE 

Our PE lessons are taught using the PE Hub scheme which leads our children through the many aspects of PE including gymnastics, athletics and developing a wide variety of skills.  

RE 
Schools have to decide the scheme and syllabus they use for teaching RE. In this school we use the Kent Syllabus.
