All children in every year group are entitled to be taught a broad, balanced and interesting curriculum that is matched to their needs, taking into account their previous learning and attainment. At Higham on the Hill C of E Primary School we have developed our own curriculum that focuses on subject specific sequences of learning.
We have created, as a part of our bespoke curriculum, Knowledge Organisers (KOs) for each half term for each subject the children will be learning. All the key knowledge and vocabulary that pupils will learn and be expected to know are on these KOs. Teachers plan their lessons carefully sticking to the key learning outlined on these documents. The KOs for each year group can be found on individual class pages.
You will probably have heard the phrase ‘Recovery Curriculum’ which has been used to describe the teaching and learning that needs to take place in schools now that they are fully open to all pupils, to ensure that pupils do not miss out and fall behind due to school closures.
Please find more information about this in the attached document:
Children study all subjects in the National Curriculum from Year 1. This includes English, Mathematics, , Science, RE, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Music, Art and Design Technology, PE and a modern foreign language. Personal, Social and Health Education is also taught.
Each teacher has a responsibility for particular curriculum areas. A panel of governors is responsible for monitoring the curriculum we provide.
