The curriculum is the subject content taught across Dell Primary School that ensures learning and personal development for all pupils. Its core foundations are taken from the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2. However, our curriculum goes well beyond the statutory requirements. We have developed a bespoke curriculum, linking established schemes of work with those designed by the school’s leaders alongside staff, to ensure the needs of our children and their families are met. The importance of the school’s locality and community as a learning resource underpins learning throughout the curriculum, forming a firm foundation for exciting global and multicultural content.
Beyond the knowledge that the academic curriculum provides, we are passionate about teaching our pupils to grow as individuals. We have created a programme of personal and social education to nurture pupils to become positive, confident adults. These skills, values and attitudes are evident in our ethos, promoted through our belief in our core values and taught as a PSHE programme as well as being woven into the fabric of all areas curriculum study. We place great emphasis on social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning along with promoting British values in a range of creative forms.
- To create a happy school environment that is inclusive, diverse and safe and which promotes the building of positive relationships with others.
- To help each child develop a lively enquiring mind, confidence and compassion, enabling them to experiment, investigate, take risks and make informed choices while at school and in later life.
- To establish a welcoming atmosphere and a strong partnership between school and home with all stakeholders and with the wider community.
- To set inspirational targets which motivate our children to succeed and achieve their full potential, through a creative, personalised curriculum that will excite, challenge and celebrate learning.
In addition, the aims of our school curriculum are:
- To achieve high standards and make good progress.
- To enable those not achieving age-related expectations to narrow the gap and catch up.
- To develop key literacy, numeracy and ICT skills.
- To develop a lifelong love of learning.
- To promote the British values: democracy, law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance.
- To recognise and value the multicultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the UK and those it serves.
- Promote equal opportunities and eradicate discrimination.
EYFS Curriculum Overview
At Dell Primary School we use Knowledge Organisers to map out each subject for each year group. A knowledge organiser is a document that gives an overview of the core knowledge and skills that pupils will have learnt by the end of a unit of study, and the learning opportunities they will be provided with whilst exploring the topic.
