National Curriculum 2014
This year, we have spent the first half of the Autumn term consulting with all members of the school community to develop our Vision and Values.
Now these are in place, we are moving on to develop our curriculum. At the heart of these are key factors which inform the choices we make and drive our aspirations. We are currently determining these key ‘drivers’ which will underpin the direction and development of every aspect of the curriculum to ensure that it is enriched and personalised in order to meet the needs, interests and ambitions of our children and their families.
Watch this space over the coming weeks to see how our curriculum intent develops, along with how it will be implemented and the impact of it.
Read Write Inc
In KS1 we also use Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, which provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK’s primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.Each Read Write Inc. programme meets the higher expectations of the new curriculum and uses effective assessment to accelerate every child’s progress
We also have a number of well-established intervention packages in use across the school to support pupils to make additional progress.
