Curriculum Drivers

Whole School Curriculum Map

The Curriculum is mapped out across the school for each year group. These Curriuclum maps, outline the key aspects of work covered in each subject across the year. You can view these by clicking on the documents below:

Progression of Skills

The main aim of the 2014 curriculum was to raise standards. The curriculum is intended to be challenging, focusing on essential core subject knowledge and skills.

We have worked hard to ensure the Progression of Skills for each pupil as they move from Early Years to Upper Key Stage Two. We have developed a Progression of Skills document which shows the year group or phase expectations in every subject. You can view these by clicking on the subject links below:

Knowledge Organiser

What are knowledge organisers?

A knowledge organiser is a set of key facts or information that pupils need to know and be able to recall in order to master a unit or topic. Typically, an organiser fits onto one page of A4, which helps pupils to visualise the layout of the page, which in turn helps them to memorise the information better.

How will a knowledge organiser help my child?

Knowledge organisers will be made available at the start of each unit to help them remember what they are learning and to help them to see the bigger learning journey in their subjects. Instead of forgetting previous learning, pupils will continually revisit and retrieve prior learning from their memories.

How will a knowledge organiser help me to help my child?

Many parents/carers ask us how they can help to support their children at home. The knowledge organisers will help parents/carers to:

  • To understand exactly what their children are supposed to learn and remember
  • To know what language they should use when discussing learning at home
  • To know how to support their children in learning about a topic                 

  You will find the Year groups knowledge organisers saved within the subject folder linked below.

Please note we have only started to develop these in the 2019-20 academic year, and so will be adding to the folders throughout the year - so watch this space.
