Curriculum and Assessment
Curriculum & Assessment
We promote strong Christian values throughout our innovative and inclusive curriculum. We provide a challenging yet nurturing environment with high expectations, where all children can learn and success and achievement are celebrated. Our children are offered a consistent educational experience, focused on them as individual learners, helping equip them with lifelong learning skills for their future challenges. Through strong community links, we encourage children to understand their place in God’s world.
Our curriculum includes English, Maths, Science, Personal and Social Development, Physical Education, RE, Computing, History, Geography, Spanish, Design Technology, Music and Art & Design.
Your child will either be assessed as meeting the expected level for their age, exceeding it or still working towards the expected level. Pupils in year 2 and 6 will also take SATs and there is a phonic screening check in Year 1.
Underpinning principles for our assessment procedures
We believe that assessment is at the heart of teaching and learning and should provide pupils with
opportunities to review their progress,
ambitious targets so that they can at least meet expected standards
feedback that inspires and motivates them to achieve.
We will ensure that our methods are consistent and appropriate to the task and to the age of the child so that the outcomes are meaningful and understandable, enabling
pupils to take ownership and develop their learning
parents to effectively support their child’s learning and understand how and where their child is making progress
teachers and teaching assistants to plan meaningful teaching and learning activities that enable children to make progress because their next steps are catered for
school leaders and governors to plan and allocate resources for continuous improvement
our results to be compared to other schools, both locally and nationally.
