Curriculum

Our Curriculum Statement

 

At Chickerell Primary we aim to provide the children with a curriculum which is broad, well balanced and above all stimulates the children to learn. In addition to acquiring skills and knowledge, we aim to help the children to grow in confidence and maturity so that they can enter secondary school, and later, adulthood with the ability to pursue wholeheartedly, academic, social, sporting and cultural activities.

 

We deliver programmes of study that meet the National Curriculum guidelines issued by the DfE.

This National Curriculum comprises of three core subjects:

 

English, Mathematics, Science

 

And foundation subjects:

 

History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education (PE), Computing, Religious Education and MFL (Modern Foreign Languages)

 

The teaching of Religious Education is statutory in all schools. It is taught as a subject outside the National Curriculum but following the Dorset approved 'Discovery' Syllabus.

 

At Chickerell Primary Academy we place great emphasis on Numeracy and Literacy as these underpin many of the other aspects of the taught curriculum.

 

To ensure complete Curriculum coverage we have a half termly curriculum focus where all the key skills for that subject area are taught through topic work.

The curriculum and how we teach it

Child Led Learning

At the beginning of each topic the children are asked what they would like to learn. The class teacher will then incorporate the pupil's ideas as well as ensuring that the key skills for the curricular focus is fully covered. Therefore the children feel that they have choices in  their learning.
