At All Saints’ CE Primary School we have a distinctive and personalised curriculum that will prepare our children for the ever-changing world that they will grow up within. Our curriculum is a bespoke curriculum, enhanced and personalised by, or in some curriculum areas, written by, the team at All Saints’, with our pupils in mind, and developed to meet our children's needs . Our curriculum meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum (2014)
Our school has a curriculum that intends to:
Promote choice and decision making which will enable our children to take responsibility for their learning journey and lifestyle.
Utilise children’s natural curiosity to develop time and self-management through problem solving, enquiry and investigations.
Provide our children with challenging learning experiences which are engaging, motivating and exciting.
Inspire our children to collaborate, cooperate and reflect through discussion.
Lead children to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding through a range of real life learning experiences.
We have designed our curriculum in this way because each PUPIL is at the heart of our school and at the centre of our curriculum. Through our curriculum we intend to support and encourage our children to become lifelong learners, with a love of learning through the implementation of a broad, balanced and deep curriculum, developing vocabulary, skills and talents that are transferable to the next stage in their journey thus impacting upon outcomes for all.
Our curriculum is implemented across school under the careful guidance and monitoring of subject leaders, ensuring progression through school, beginning with experiences in Early Years. Each class, from Willow through to Oak, has a curriculum map, showing an overview of the curriculum that will be covered within each class, shared on class webpages. Acorn class, our EYFS class, develop their own curriculum map each half term, in part in response to children's interests and needs. These can also be found on the class webpages.
Every class make effective use of visits and visitors to enhance the learning opportunities for the children and support in developing cultural capital. In implementing our curriculum, we make use of assessment to shape future learning and plan engaging and exciting learning opportunities for our children, supported each term by a visit or visitor to enhance the learning experience for every child. Our curriculum aims to meet the needs of all children. Our SENCo, Mrs Huddy, supports in adapting provision for children with additional needs.
When implementing our curriculum, we pay careful consideration to the science of learning; ensuing regular opportunities for retrieval of prior taught content, including space retrieval, to support children in 'knowing more and remembering more'. Learning is broken down into carefully sequenced small 'chunks', with staff continuously making use of assessment to guide learning provision. As a staff team, we have spent time researching and exploring Rosenhine's Principles of Instruction and these are incorporated into our teaching approach across school. Our curriculum is ever evolving as we learn as subject leaders in school, based upon monitoring and reflection.
Detailed curriculum overviews for each subject can be found in the subject specific pages. Within the children's section of our website, and under class pages, you will find further details of the curriculum being covered in each class/year group throughout the year, in the form of a curriculum overview and a detailed half termly/termly curriculum map. We hold class showcases, towards the end of each term, which allow children the opportunity to showcase their learning from across the curriculum with their parents and give parents and governors the chance to come and share in children's learning and review the impact that learning experiences have had on all children.
Dates of class showcases can be found on the school calendar.
You will also find subject area pages below, which contain overviews of individual subjects across school and the progression between year groups. Our curriculum is designed to be inclusive and meet the needs of all children as learners, in line with both the Equality Act and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations. More details can be found within our SEND policy and also within our Equality Objectives Statement.
