The Curriculum

Overall Curriculum Intent

The child is at the centre of what we do at Stechford Primary School. Our curriculum is built on strong pedagogical principles, with every child encouraged to meet and achieve their potential. We make it our aim to discover what children are good at and use this to promote a positive attitude to learning. The diversity of our school population, comprised of over 9 different ethnicities with 17 different home languages, is reflected in the curriculum we deliver. It is broad and balanced, with opportunities for pupils to celebrate, share, and learn about their different cultural and spiritual beliefs.

The breadth of curriculum content allows pupils to explore through a curriculum where there are no limits to learning and there is a clear development of skills. Pupils may not have access at home to the learning and experiences that pupils have access to at Stechford Primary School.

The curriculum is about achievement, enjoyment and enrichment.

Curriculum Implementation

The curriculum is based on good quality resources. English is taught through whole class texts whilst following a ‘Talk for Writing’ approach. Pupils are taught to initiate and invent their pieces of writing. This allows learners to grow and develop confidence in specific genres well as their writer’s voice. Maths is taught through White Rose Maths, by using White Rose Maths frameworks and guidance to adopt a maths mastery approach, we can help all children achieve excellence in mathematics. No pupils are considered ‘low ability’ or allowed to feel like they ‘can’t do maths’. Instead, a positive ‘can-do’ attitude is encouraged and children are taught to enjoy working with numbers. Adopting a White Rose Maths approach is about building a deep understanding of topics, helping children become confident mathematicians who embrace mathematical challenges.a mastery approach to ensure curriculum coverage and maximise chances for children to revisit important concepts.  The school has adapted the curriculum to help reflect and represent the diversity of our pupils. Creativity and teacher expertise is woven into the curriculum with specialist teachers and outside agencies working with pupils and teachers, sharing good practice and ensuring that learners learn from the best.

Each subject area has clear overviews, which show clear progression and content for the whole school.

Curriculum Impact

The impact of the curriculum is monitored though triangulation of outcomes: pupil voice, test/data outcomes, planning, monitoring of books and displays, lesson learning walks, discussions with teaching staff and pupils.

Pupils and staff are consistently and regularly consulted about the curriculum and the impact that it makes.

The desired outcomes of the curriculum will ensure that pupils are well rounded students, ready to embark on the next stage of their education. They will be equipped with the foundation and skills to achieve success in later education. Pupils will have an understanding of what they are good at and have developed skills to face their challenges.
