Curriculum

Curriculum

Great Addington CE Primary School teaches the National Curriculum for Years 1-6 and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for Year R. In order to ensure the breadth and depth of our offer, we use careful curriculum planning to link our learning together across and within years, upholding our Christian values and curriculum intent for our pupils. Our full Curriculum Intent Statement can be accessed to the right of this page. 

Our curriculum reflects our local needs and context. The curriculum meets the particular aims and values of our school by providing opportunities and experiences for our pupils to develop:

·         Citizenship – giving back, serving, social justice, fairness. A large proportion of our pupils are from relatively affluent families and are fortunate enough to experience a full and varied life-style. Many of our pupils have a real sense of self-esteem, which we encourage, alongside the development of a greater sense of responsibility towards others.

 

·         Understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity – Our school is in a small village in rural Northamptonshire and our pupil roll is vast majority white British. Almost all pupils transition to local secondary schools of similar demographics.

 

·         Self-regulation – reflection, self-monitoring, regulation, resilience, risk-taking, learning from failure, independence. Learning behaviours for many of our pupils are not yet robust enough to secure outstanding progress.

As a school, we adapt our curriculum to make it accessible for children with disabilities or special educational needs. More information about this can be found in our SEN report.

Information about the current content being studied in each class can be found in our curriculum maps on this page.
