OUR INTENT

Our Curriculum Vision

 

Our aspirational curriculum will inspire and engage our children to be the best they can be by developing the values, skills and personal qualities to allow them to build a brighter future for themselves and God's World.

 

 

 

                                                                                              

Curriculum Aims

 

*To provide a multi-layered curriculum that meets the needs of, engages and challenges all children;

 

*To ensure that all children leave our school proficient in the fundamental skills of speaking and listening, reading, writing and mathematics; and well prepared to make a positive contribution to wider society and life in Britain;

 

*To develop a love of learning through a wide interconnected curriculum which builds on real life contexts to provide a wealth of learning opportunities;

 

*To use a discreet subject approach which enables rigorous progression of skills both academic and social, moral, spiritual and cultural;

 

*To provide a curriculum which promotes and engages parents and carers in their children’s learning building real life learning contexts both in and out of school.

 

 

Curriculum Structure

 

Nyewood’s curriculum is developed specifically for each year group and adapted by expert teachers  to deliver an exciting, relevant curriculum meeting the needs of our children. Discreet subject teaching within project themes ensures a tightly structured progression of skills and learning dispositions, for example reflection time, thereby readying children for transition to secondary school and beyond.

 

Each year group engages in all subjects across the year. To enrich school based learning, trips and visitors are carefully planned to bring learning to life and provide the all-important real-life learning experiences.

 

Our curriculum demonstrates core coverage in each curricular area. Fundamental to this is the real life learning opportunities that children engage in at home – visits to the beach with friends, taking part in clubs and spending quality time with family. Engaging in reinforcement of core skills such as regular reading to children and hearing them read along with supporting the term by term development of spelling patterns and phonic awareness are ways in which family members can work with the staff to reinforce the value of all learning experiences both academic and social. It is through working together alongside the strong Christian ethos that Nyewood's curriculum is further strengthened and enriched.

As a school, we intend to incorporate our school values of Respect, Resilience, Honesty, Collaboration and Independence into every unit of work.
