Where Everyone Belongs


Curriculum Implementation

We use a number of pedagogies to ensure that we meet our curriculum intent; these are used when we plan our curriculum to inspire for our learners.

  • Each curriculum project incorporates a day to hook and engage the children.
  • Mantle of the Expert can be used as one way to hook and engage children in the curriculum theme or subject.
  • The ‘Elements of Discussion’ are used to develop children’s oracy and discussions and supports our EAL children to learn classroom routines using non-verbal interactions.
  • Writing has a clear purpose and audience.
  • Our maths curriculum includes opportunities for fluency, reasoning and problem solving – children ‘grapple’ with difficult concepts and investigate the best methods and strategies to solve them.  Anchor tasks are used to introduce mathematical themes and concepts.
  • Each half term starts with a school values day, where children focus on one of the 5R’s as well as elements of our RSHE curriculum.
  • Every child in part of a ‘House’ team; Oak, Pine, Sycamore, Elm or Aspen. They meet together each half term to develop team work skills and have the opportunity to take part in house competitions during sports day.
  • Every child in Year 4 has the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
  • We offer a broad range of extra-curricular activities which go beyond the school day. (mindfulness club, yoga club, investigation club, coding club etc)
  • We offer a range of enrichment activities that go beyond the classroom (school council, mini police, Make A Difference group,  Leaders at all levels, Djanogly Dozen experiences, school trips and visits, competitions, fundraising).
