Enjoyment. Discovery. Growth.

Overview

Our school's curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning, and personal growth and development. We offer children a broad, balanced, differentiated and relevant curriculum which recognises individual developmental needs and takes account of the new National Curriculum requirements issued in September 2014.

 

We aim to provide children with the ability to meet the unknown challenges of the twenty-first century. We focus on developing children’s learning capacity so that they can become positive, responsible citizens who can work and cooperate with others while at the same time developing their knowledge and skills, in order to be the best they can be.

 

The aim is for our curriculum to be the best for our children at Moseley Primary School.  We want it to be exciting, interesting and engaging so that children are curious and want to learn.  We want children to come home from school excited about what they are learning about.

 

We also want our curriculum to be about raising standards. Our curriculum provides our children with the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizen. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.  

 

We do this by following three simple principles.  The What, Why and How of curriculum planning:

 

What:  National Curriculum Programmes of Study.  This ensures the curriculum is broad and meets statutory requirements.

Why:  So that children learn and get better at using key subject skills and essential knowledge.

How:  We plan exciting contexts for learning that ‘hook’ and engage learners so that they want to learn more.  We aim to make learning real and relevant to the lives of our children.

 

The curriculum at Moseley Primary School is constantly being reviewed and updated to ensure that it meets the needs of our children.

 

The Creative Curriculum has been organised through a ‘theme based’ approach which incorporates the statutory requirements set out in the National Curriculum.

The use of ICT is encouraged in all theme areas; as a subject in its own right and in both the teaching of the theme and in the opportunities for children’s independent learning. Each class teacher is responsible for the delivery of the Creative Curriculum.

Although links can be made with all subjects, the following subjects are taught as dedicated, discrete sessions: 

 

Maths – Maths skills are key to developing everyday skills although links can be made to the curriculum through data handling, position, measurement, especially in Science, DT and Geography.

English– English, Phonics, Guided Reading and Handwriting are taught as discrete subjects as they build up basic skills.

RE – This is taught discretely though a series of 9 RE days. The children learn about all faiths and about the importance of respecting people’s beliefs.

PE and Swimming – delivered by teaching staff and additional specialized staff.

MFL - French

 

Teaching staff are encouraged to broaden the experience of the themes for the children through trips, visitors into school and shared experiences of the wider school community, e.g. involvement with parents and school links etc.
