Curriculum Overview

The overall aim of our curriculum is to open doors of opportunity for our children

 

All children have a range of futures open to them based on a number of factors including their experiences, the support that they have received and their attainment. Our curriculum aims to ensure that no doors are closed to the children while they are with us and new doors (which were previously not accessible) are opened.  

 

We recognise that the skills of speaking, listening, reading, writing and mathematics are the key to opening many doors in the future - without these a child's chances will be limited as they move on in education and the world.  

 

However, we also recognise the importance the wider curriculum - including the sciences, humanities and the arts, as well as other key areas such as PE, PSHE, SRE and healthy lifestyles (including food technology) - and developing the children's underlying attitudes towards learning and their learning behaviours.    

 

Our wider curriculum is based around the children working towards, and earning, unique badges for each term.

                      

A summary of how we devised our curriculum, and our rationale behind it, is available here: The Story of our Curriculum

 

***Covid-19 Update***

Due to the disruption to learning from March - July 2020, the full launch of the revised Pirton Hill Curriculum has been delayed, in line with DfE Guidance. For the 2020-2021 the school has "priortised re-establishing good progress in the essentials" (e.g. phonics, reading, writing, Mathematics and increasing vocabulary) to "address significant gaps in pupils' knowledge with the aim of returning to the school's normal curriculum content" by Autumn 2021. 

 

The following documents are aimed to give you a flavour of what we intend the children to learn in each year group and how we will implement it.
