Curriculum for Parents
Quality First Teaching and Learning:
We believe that all staff must promote a love for learning and have a clear understanding of how children learn.
The quality of planning, teaching, learning and assessment will be tailored to suit the needs of all learners. Our aim is for all children to become independent learners through planning and teaching well-structured lessons.
Our curriculum is broad and balanced and enhanced through experiences such as outdoor learning and the development of our new Forest School area. Children have the opportunity to go on trips to areas of interest linked to the curriculum, aspiration days to local universities and residential holidays.
The school has a strong focus on the arts and is an Arts Mark School, we are currently working towards the Silver Award. We have an amazing school choir who take part in community events such as singing at the Overseal Remembrance Day service and performing at the Overseal Gala as well as taking part in school performances and singing events such as Young Voices.
For Literacy, Numeracy and Science we follow the New National Curriculum schemes of work and Year group expectations. For spelling, we use Letters and Sounds in KS1 and follow the Babcock year group plans for KS2.
We follow National Curriculum Objectives for: design and technology, history, geography, art and design, music, physical education (PE), including swimming, information and communication technology (ICT). For RE and PHSE, we follow the Derbyshire agreed syllabus.
As a school, we have split these objectives and formed our own Year group curricular plans. These are attached below.
Throughout our curriculum we teach the children about the Core British Values of: Democracy, The Rule of Law, Liberty,Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths and Religions
