Schemes and Planning

The Academy curriculum is outlined below but if you'd like to find out more please contact the Principal/Vice Principal at the school or see Twitter for lots of evidence of our wonderful curriculum in action

The Academy has a broad and balanced curriculum, with core skills which we call 'Tim's Traits' at the heart. It is based on core subjects and foundation subjects being taught through a thematic approach, where teachers are responsible for 'when' and 'what' is taught. Themes are decided based upon the children's interests and needs, although a standardised structure does exist for teachers to follow.

This is taught in phases -

Phase 1 = Years 1 & 2

Phase 2 = Years 3 & 4

Phase 3 = Years 5 & 6

Maths is taught following the AET provided Maths Curriculum which follows the National Curriculum supplemented by additionally school sourced/produced materials

English - as per the National curriculum but broken down into units of narrative, non-narrative and poetry with different genres studied each half term

RE as per the Discovery RE Curriculum (outline below)

PSHE as per the Jigsaw PSHE scheme of work

Science through the Rising Stars Science Scheme of Work with additional themed resources
