Curriculum Statement

Curriculum Intent at Loseley Fields Primary School 2019-2020

Introduction

Our experience of working in our school community tells us that our children are most engaged in their learning when it immerses them in meaningful, creative experiences which works towards an end goal. They are excited when working outdoors or on school visits where the learning really comes to life. As teachers we know that particular focus should be on language development in all that we teach because we recognise that this is the key to closing the gap for our most disadvantaged pupils.

The curriculum we offer at Loseley Fields includes all the experiences we offer our children and extends beyond the requirements outlined in the National Curriculum. We see the curriculum as a progression model which has suitable depth and breadth, building on prior experiences and learning to help make sense of new knowledge and skills. We teach using a topic based approach but also ensure that we give sufficient focus on each subject discipline.

Our high quality curriculum we offer is based on

a) Proactive thinking
b) Will result from considering the sequence of content necessary for children to make progress and
c) Will provide children with the knowledge they need for subsequent learning e.g. through planned vocabulary development.

We understand that there is a difference between the curriculum we cover and the activities we provide in our classrooms and therefore define it as such;

Our commitment

It is important that the education we provide at Loseley Fields fully prepares our young people for a successful transition into secondary school and then on to be successful and contributing members of society. In order to achieve this aim, staff at Loseley Fields recognise that the curriculum we provide should develop the following skills: resilience, curiosity, passion, flexibility, creativity, bravery, organisation, problem solving, empathy and tolerance.
