Our Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

At Flamstead Village School we view the design of the curriculum as an evolving and fluid process which takes into consideration: the needs and character of our children; the children’s prior learning; children’s experiences; the community in which school exists, the statutory curriculum (National Curriculum) and educational research which is evaluated and relevant to our school. 

 

At Flamstead Village School, we aim to provide a curriculum which:

  • is as rich, inspiring and broad as possible to allow pupils to widen their horizons in each subject
  • provides the depth that enables pupils to master the key knowledge and skills essential for each subject
  • is well designed, inclusive and carefully sequenced to provide all pupils with a rigorous foundation for future progression
  • promotes a wide range of enrichment experiences which enable children to make connections between all forms of learning
  • engenders high expectations and challenge in order to build pupils’ perseverance, resilience and self-belief
  • develops lively and inquiring minds through encouraging children to question and discuss issues, in order to make informed decisions
  • provides pupils with opportunities to take their curriculum beyond the classroom to develop their love of learning, independence and creative thinking
  • offers pupils a wide range of opportunities to own and personalise their curriculum in order to develop existing talents and interests and discover new ones
  • enables pupils to maximise their potential, achieving the highest levels of academic success leading to the widest range of pathways
  • raises pupils’ aspirations and equips them with the knowledge and skills to flourish in their future education
  • will support all pupils to become confident learners
  • promotes positive attitudes, good behaviour and moral understanding
  • fosters the development of pupils’ character, personal development, health and wellbeing preparing them to make a valuable contribution to society

 

Curriculum Implementation

 

Our curriculum is closely matched to the Primary National Curriculum and is broad and balanced focusing on depth of learning and mastery of content. We follow a two year rolling programme and use a range of resources to support the teaching and learning.
