As a Trust we have very clear values which underpin our curriculum. The curriculum will be broad in content and will offer a smooth transition into the next phase, so that pupils flourish and are well equipped for the next stage of their school life.
Key aspects of our curriculum are:
The importance of the core curriculum of English, Mathematics, PE and Science and the proposed wider curriculum with Spanish, Humanities, Creative Arts, Food, ICT, Latin and Classics offered as a special feature at key stage 2. This mirrors the opportunities at Cheney School to develop an appreciation and understanding of a broad range of knowledge and unique experiences.
Throughout the curriculum, we will take every opportunity for pupils to learn from experiences outside the classroom. Pupils will leave Barton Park Primary School with a range of experiences to include playing in an orchestra, performing on a stage, competing in sports, taking part in civic occasions and in outdoor learning through the Forest School program. These Barton Park Primary School is part of Community Schools Alliance Trust 4 new experiences will help pupils explore learning new skills and extend appreciation of their part in the world.
Health and well-being will form part of the curriculum with activities every day which reinforces the importance of a growth mind-set and a healthy mind and body.
The Early Years Foundation Stage pupils will have a curriculum which enables them to explore in a safe, stimulating and fun way so that they transition to their next stage full of enthusiasm for learning. Pupils progressing onto Year 1 would be expected to have made at least good levels of progress in English and Mathematics to support their further academic progress.
