The breadth of our curriculum is designed with these goals in mind:
We do this by offering a broad range of learning experiences in the classroom, outdoors and in the wider community, across a wide variety of curriculum subjects.
We have developed four curriculum drivers that shape our curriculum, bring about the aims and Christian values of our school, and respond to the needs of our community by basing learning in the local community:
As a school, we are privileged to be situated right in the heart of Gainsborough. We want to ensure that our pupils learn about their local community and it's history and we have designed our curriculum to do this. The pupils will learn about:
Underpinned by our four drivers, our academic curriculum sets out:
Our curriculum design is based on evidence from cognitive science; three main principles underpin it:
In the subject curriculum, teachers ensure pupils embed key concepts in their long-term memory. It is sequenced so new knowledge builds upon prior knowledge and work towards clearly defined end goals.
Teachers check pupils’ understanding effectively and identify and correct any misunderstandings through the use of pre-learning tasks to establish starting points. Teachers also use assessment to check pupils’ understanding to inform future teaching and to help pupils embed and use knowledge effectively rather than memorising a range of random facts.
The following evidence is used by the school to assess the impact of the curriculum:
The curriculum is adapted as appropriate and in line with the SEND Code of Practice guidance, to find out more please visit our SEND section of the website here.
Children in EYFS have access to activities and experiences shaped by the educational programmes that are set out under the seven areas of learning:
The Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage ..."sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe."
"To provide a curriculum which is relevant, exciting and motivates children to love learning."
" We incorporate the Characteristics of Effective Learning (CoEL) into our teaching and learning experiences and use the language of these behaviours in our conversations with the children."
Through the delivery of a relevant, flexible and exciting curriculum we aim that the children will leave EYFS as independent learners with the behaviours, attitudes and transferable skills needed for Year 1 and beyond.
