Owslebury Primary School Curriculum for Learning

 

Our vision is to recognise and realise the unique potential of every individual at Owslebury Primary School.  Our curriculum has been designed with this in mind and the expectation that all our pupils are successful.

 

We see the curriculum as not just what happens in the classroom but as all the varied experiences that make up life at our school.  It ensures children develop a love of learning; make strong progress and achieve well; develop a sense of identify; lead healthy and safe lives; develop an awareness of the world and make a positive contribution to society.

 

To maximise opportunities for our pupils, we have shaped a curriculum which includes both discrete subject teaching and topic-led learning.  Our topic-led learning includes hooks, rich, meaningful and memorable learning experiences delivered through a variety of ways that excite and motivate the children.

 

The curriculum has been carefully planned so pupils can make connections to previous learning and across subjects.  Subject knowledge and skills are mapped both horizontally across each year and vertically throughout the curriculum journey. Subject leaders direct the specific subject intent and are advocates for ensuring a high quality, challenging curriculum.

 

Our values of aspiration, resilience, nurture, collaboration and respect permeate every aspect of school life and help our children develop the skills required for lifelong learning and to prepare them for adulthood, their place in society and the world of work.

We use a range of high quality fiction and non-fiction colour banded books in KS1 from Bug Club, Collins, and Oxford University Press that link to our phonics scheme, Letters and Sounds.
