We aim to offer a broad and balanced curriculum to meet the needs of all children in our school. We follow the National Curriculum. The knowledge, skills and understanding of each subject are developed and built on as children move through the school.
Areas of the curriculum are often linked together in order to make learning more meaningful and children are given opportunities to practise and apply their core English and maths skills within other subjects. We use educational visits to support learning e.g. Year 6 visit the Imperial War Museum as part of their World War 2 topic. As well as trips further afield, we also make good use of the local area such as visits to Dover Museum and to Dover Castle. Year 6 enjoy a residential visit every year which provides an excellent opportunity for children to take part in adventurous outdoor activities.
We are part of a Dover collaboration consisting of five other schools. We provide children with opportunities to take part in a wide range of events and competitions with children from other local schools.
We are currently implementing a new phonics programme: Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. This is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP)
We have 15 computers in our ICT suite, as well as laptops and ipads, so children are able to learn and apply ICT skills in all areas of the curriculum.
We have high expectations of all our children to achieve well and do their best whilst staying safe, being healthy, and enjoying their time at primary school.
The National Curriculum is the statutory document that gives guidance for all state maintained schools. This document outlines the expectations for the knowledge, skills and understanding your child will acquire over their time in primary school.
