- We strive for children to learn skills alongside knowledge, ensuring that both are developed and intertwined. The curriculum is about how we can ensure that pupils develop both.
- We do this by having an emphasis on cross-curricular teaching with a strong focus on sequential and progressive skills. We believe that this is important for making the curriculum relevant and meaningful to pupils and for putting knowledge into context.
- We believe that it is our responsibility to develop the Literacy and Numeracy skills for all of our pupils. Using the Early Years Foundation Stage Strategy and National Curriculum as a basis, age-appropriate progression and knowledge for each core and foundation subject has been identified. This has been mapped out to ensure coverage of identified knowledge is secured across KS1 and KS2. We carefully select the sequence of when, what and how knowledge is taught and subject leaders work actively to review this regularly.
