Our curriculum is designed to reach our vision: to empower every child to have the knowledge and skills to participate, contribute and achieve in modern Britain and the wider world’.
The curriculum is all the planned activities that we as a school organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes, not only the formal requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 and the Early Years framework in Reception, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to underpin learning and enrich the experiences of our children. To participate and contribute to society in the modern world, a range of skills are required. This includes many aspects that may not be explicitly covered by the curriculum such as ability to follow rules and to display good manners.
At Broseley Primary our vision permeates all areas of school life and this is reflected by our FACES ethos : Faith, Ambition, Courage and Endeavour = Success.
We take our responsibility to prepare children for a healthy life in modern Britain and the wider world very seriously and ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of our school.
At Broseley we recognise that a broad and balanced education is a huge indicator of success in later life. We look to impart knowledge through direct instruction, using effective models and images, and also through experiences and some collaborative work. We want every child regardless of ability and background to have the reading skills to have access to the full curriculum. If the children do not have these skills, then children will have great difficulty accessing the vast body of knowledge available to them. Therefore, we place a huge emphasis on the skill of reading alongside fostering a love of reading.
Given the context of our school and the uncertain times we live in, we believe it is vital that children have an understanding of other cultures, faiths and the wider experiences the UK has to offer. Therefore, we have a curriculum focus at present on Equality, Empowerment and the Environment (3Es).
Our curriculum is split between EYFS, Year 1 and 2, Year 3 and 4 and Year 5 and 6. This ensures comprehensive coverage and progression for all children. This curriculum may be altered depending on the interests or needs of children. Every subject has a co-ordinator who ensure there is progress in the key knowledge and skills that are required in that subject.
With assessment, we recognise the importance of both formative and summative assessment in capturing how the children are progressing through the curriculum especially since the disruptions as a result of the coronavirus.
