“CONNECTED CREATIVE CURRICULUM”
After 18 months of research and planning, our Connected Creative Curriculum ("Triple C", as one of our pupil's named it!) was launched in September 2009. We are excited to delivery our units of work under the umbrella of a "connector". For each class, this changes each term. This curriculm focuses on developing links in our learning and promotes the teaching and application of transferrable skills. (An example of a C.C.C. Timetable is attached).
The school curriculum includes the following elements:
This starts in the pre-school year and continues into the Reception year and is organised into the following areas of learning:
Three Prime Areas:
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication and Language
Four Specific Areas:
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Years 1 to 6
From Year 1, every child follows the National Curriculum, which includes
- English, Mathematics, Science, Information and communication Technology.
- Art, Design Technology, French (Years 3 - 6), Geography and History, Music, Religious Education, Personal, Social & Health Education, Physical Education.
We recognise that we have a crucial role to play in warning our pupils of the dangers which drugs misuse poses. We therefore provide an effective drugs education programme within the curriculum as part of our aim to be a health promoting School.
Sex and Relationships Education
Our aim is to develop the children’s’ awareness of the needs of their bodies through correct diet, healthy lifestyle and acceptable personal habits. Sex Education Sessions are given to Year 5 and 6 pupils with a programme arranged with the School Nurse.
Children with Special Educational Needs
Some children may require extra help at specific times during their education, either with learning or behavioural issues. We have effective systems in place so that specific needs can be identified as soon as possible and appropriate support given.
If we feel the child would benefit from additional support or assessment from an external agency, our Special Needs Leader will in the first instance seek permission from the Parents.
