Curriculum Provision

Curriculum Provision at Stenson Fields Primary Community School

 

The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also any other activity organised by school, for example, extra-curricular activities and any other activities designed to enrich the experience of the children. There is also a ‘hidden’ element to the curriculum which includes what the children learn from their school environment, the way they are treated and how they are expected to behave. This personal development plays an important part in raising the standard of attainment for all children.

Our curriculum follows the Statutory  National Curriculum 2014. We enhance this with planned opportunities that make up the wider school curriculum. Learning is exciting and in a meaningful context for children. Where possible subjects and aspects of learning are linked and lessons are taught using a cross-curricular approach. Where this is not achievable subjects are taught discretely. In this way, rehearsal and application of basic skills learned in the core curriculum are applied in meaningful contexts.

Our curriculum aims:

  • To offer broad and balanced opportunities for learning
  • To achieve progress and high standards for all children
  • To equip children with essential knowledge and skills
  • To develop children’s confidence, and to encourage them to work independently and collaboratively, while developing a lifelong love of learning
  • To promote an enquiring mind and the ability to think critically and creatively
  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
  • To develop physical skills, and recognise the importance of living a healthy lifestyle
  • To contribute to the children’s sense of identity through knowledge and understanding of the cultural heritage of Britain’s diverse society and of the local, national and global dimensions of their lives
  • To prepare children for the next steps in education, and their wider lives
