In September 2014 we introduced the government’s new curriculum to our school. The curriculum offers a ‘slimmed down’ programme of study for us to deliver to the children as a minimum requirement.
This means that we now (as we always have) deliver a ‘curriculum plus’, meaning that we provide children with the skills and experiences laid out in the statutory document and also with additional skills and experiences which we feel are vital to support children and prepare them on their way to adulthood.
Staff and other stakeholders discussed and agreed upon some ‘drivers’ for our new curriculum. We decided that we wanted our children to have and live by Christian values. We wanted them to know their place in the world and contribute to it. We knew that, in this digital age, we needed them to be fantastic comminicators. Finally, we decided that the children would need to be problem solvers. These values and decisions are the driving force behind our teaching and all of our interactions with the children. We see these aspects of the curriculum as something we nurture through lessons but also throughout the whole school day. You can read about our drivers in more details in this document: Curriculum Drivers
You can see which parts of the new curriculum are taught in each year group in our curriculum maps. You will notice that they include R.E., which is taught from the Gateshead Local Authority approved scheme of work.
