Our Whole School Curriculum Intent
Our curriculum is designed with our school vision at its forefront: Happy, Healthy and Fulfilled. Our curriculum meets all the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum for England (DfE, 2013) as well as reflecting our particular needs as a small village community with a proud mining heritage.
Our curriculum builds on prior knowledge to enable our children to be confident, independent and resilient young people with strong Christian Values. It teaches them about their local community and heritage and gives them a sense of pride in where they live. Our curriculum allows children to understand that the United Kingdom is very diverse and that not everywhere in the world is the same as Easington Village.
We teach our children to be safe and prepare them as thoroughly as possible for the next stage in their learning. We provide them with precious, memorable experiences that enhance their learning, develop a wide skill set and instil passion and interest. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave as a result of our strong Christian vision, associated values and nurturing ethos. We teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others.
Ultimately, we want our children to be happy, enjoy learning and feel fully ready for the next step in their journey.
At Easington Church of England Primary School we also value the importance of supporting children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and ensure that this is a focus in all we do including within our curriculum.
Underpinning our curriculum is the Curriculum Intent: all the things we believe are important for our pupils, what makes our context unique and how we intend to achieve our aims through a learning offer that is relevant, planned and progressive. Find out more in our Curriculum Intent document, available to download below.
Our ‘Long Term Plans’ show each year group’s overview of topics and curriculum learning. These are currently under review over the coming year, (2019-2020) and we look forward to sharing them with you as each subject is considered and planned for. New medium term planning reflecting our Curriculum Intent, will also be available from from September 2020. Information about our first updated Curriculum areas, History and Geography, are now available. Long term planning for these areas will be available to view very soon:
- History Rationale – INTENT AND IMPLEMENTATION SEP 2020
