Implementation – How the curriculum is taught.
Implementation describes the way in which we deliver our curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to enable learners to acquire relevant subject knowledge which underpins the application of skills. Skills are carefully and progressively mapped across each key stage and subject area in the progression maps. Knowledge is consolidated and built upon to support retention and recall and is clearly outlined in the planning and end point documents.
Discrete teaching of non-core subjects
We follow the ‘Kapow Primary’ scheme of work for French, Music and Computing. Kapow Primary’s schemes of work support pupils to meet the National Curriculum end of key stage attainment targets and has been written to fully cover the National Society for Education progression competencies.
We deliver Geography, History, Art & Design Technology thematically. Through our topics we provide our pupils with hands on learning opportunities to ensure that the curriculum is rich and relevant to them.
We operate a two year / three rolling programme (Year A, Year B, Year C) to successfully accommodate the needs of our mixed aged classes. This ensures the entire National Curriculum is covered in a sequential way throughout a pupils’ time at our school. Our class structure is currently Nurery and Reception in Wrekin Class, Year 1, 2 and 3 in Malvern Class and Years 4, 5 and 6 in Brecon Class. Due to numbers the split of year groups can alter from year to year, however our curriculum and the professionalism of the teachers ensures all children engage in the highest quality teaching and curriculum experience.
Through our commitment to strive for the very best for our children, we are continuously reviewing our curriculum, working with staff, governors, children and parents to create a curriculum that matches our ambitions for every child whilst complimenting the vision and aims of our school.
