Our Curriculum

Curriculum

At Clent Parochial Primary School, we teach and encourage the transferable skills for independent, life-long learning. We shape our curriculum to reflect the ethos aims and values of our school. In every year group throughout the school our teachers plan a series of topic-based approaches to learning which reflect the 2014 National Curriculum and are firmly rooted upon a set of skills that are progressive. Topics are planned in Key Stages based on the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum, which is an approach that we have just started to use this academic year (September 2015). At every opportunity we try to let children be children, but ensuring that we push to make sure every child achieves their full potential. Our curriculum is always tailored to the needs of each child so that everyone can access the curriculum.

Our curriculum is based on statutory guidance with four core subjects: Literacy; Science; Numeracy; I.C.T. As a Church School RE is also regarded as a key subject. Other foundation subjects are History; Geography; Music, Art, Design and Technology, Modern Foreign Language and Physical Education.

Wherever possible, the topic is used to link core and foundation subjects together such as literacy and history, science and mathematics allowing further opportunity for Mastery. We also build in curriculum enrichment opportunities where we can focus on one aspect of learning or subject area or a social and emotional wellbeing focus.  This may be through educational visits, through inviting visitors in or by having an end of topic event so that children can showcase their learning, e.g. for school productions, art exhibitions

We place a strong emphasis on developing creativity in all areas of a broad and rich curriculum and encourage independence in learning allowing all our children to make their own choices, as well as supporting each other. Our children should be excited by their learning and able to develop a wide range of skills that they will be able to carry with them throughout life.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development at Clent Primary, including the promotion of fundamental British Values, is an important aspect of learning. Whether through sport, music, clubs, collective worship and celebrations or through specific curriculum links, SMSC development is a part of every school day.

Our core values have an impact on everything we do. We believe that these values are important to our whole school community regardless of our different Faiths and beliefs. These values inform our policies procedures and practice. Every unique individual is valued and appropriately challenged. All are aware of our school values and opportunities are created to explore and understand how the values link to school life.

Please see our ‘2014 Curriculum Overview’ which outlines the themes and topics that our children will cover this year. Also available to view are the 2014 National Curriculum expectations which have been arranged by each year group.
