Our Curriculum

Our staff worked together to encapsulate the vision for our school curriculum and the pedagogy that underpins it.  This is summarised in the attachment below:

Subject Overviews

Our subject Leaders have thought carefully about the National/Early Year curriculum Frameworks, our school context and our school values to devise subject skills progressions for their subjects.

These skills progression documents are used by our teachers when planning their subject learning journeys each half term in order to ensure that the children's skills build and develop as they move through school.

The skills progressions ensure all our teachers understand the skills that have come before and the skills that will come next.

These skills progressions have also been shared with both island junior schools so that they can continue to use the children's prior learning to inform their plans and practise.

Our Curriculum Promise

Our staff recognise that there is a need to enhance our curriculum in order to develop the cultural capital of our pupils and address the disparity that can be caused through disadvantage.  Part of our work on addressing this gap is done through our Curriculum Promise.  At the start of the year our Curriculum Promise Leader carried out some work to investigate the types of extra curricular activities the children in our school had experienced.  Using this information she has then planned a series of learning experiences to tie in with each year group's topic and skills based learning.  In additional to this teachers have thought carefully about the experiences and knowledge children need in order to access their learning appropriately, i.e., how can we expect children to access a topic about boats if they have never actually seen a real boat, or create a puppet show when they have never watched one.  Our curriculum promise is designed to ensure that all children start their learning with the same levels of knoweldge and experience.  A summary of this is attached below:

Our Safeguarding Curriculum

Safeguarding plays a key role in our school.  Alongside compliance of requirements and a culture where safeguarding is always a priority we work hard to ensure that children are being taught a range of ways to keep themselves safe, manage their mental health effectively and become good citiens.  These topics are embedded throughout the curriculum in an age appropriate manner.
