At Gosfield Community Primary School we offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through each Key Stage. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the new National Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education.
Class teachers plan maths and English from the national curriculum framework. For our foundation subjects, the National Curriculum is delivered using the Chris Quigley Framework as a basis to ensure coverage and progression throughout the school. Milestones at the end of Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6 ensure that children are meeting expectations in their learning. The more able are challenged further in their learning and children who find aspects of their learning more difficult are appropriately supported so that they too are enabled to experience success.
In January 2018 our teaching staff reviewed our approach to delivering the national curriculum and explored how we can further enhance the experience of the pupils in our school community. Our new curriculum policy will be published on our website very soon.
