Curriculum

Our curriculum has been designed to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum.

We embrace the principles of a curriculum which:

 

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

 

We will continuously develop our Broughton version of the curriculum which will deliver an engaging learning experience for our young learners. As we work on each topic for the first time, we are continually reflecting and refining it for next time. As we have mixed year group classes, it is important to build in this flexibility as each topic is visited on alternate years rather than every year.

 

Our teachers have developed progression documents, based on the outcomes, skills and knowledge we expect children to gain through our personalised curriculum. Year groups have long term plans which outline the learning journeys for each subject, building on previous years. Learning is revisited over the course of the year, deepening their understanding each time. Therefore, ensuring that the children commit the knowledge they have gained to their  long term memory. Teachers use these documents to strategically plan and assess children’s learning throughout the academic year against age related expectations.

 

We are in the unique position of having fantastic local resources around us which fit with the new curriculum - for example, Danebury Hill Fort and Stonehenge are great places to link to Ancient Britain. We believe that in addition to the core subjects, we can design a curriculum that will engage and enthuse. We have begun by ensuring we have a clear subject management responsibility structure - we have been identifying what the school does best - how we can use the locality and the skills of the teachers to motivate our young learners.
