Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day?

Find out about our Curriculum intentions and drivers here.

 

Bredon Hancock’s CE First School is committed to meeting the requirements of the EYFS Statutory Framework and the Primary National Curriculum.

Our schemes of work reflect the content and challenge of the curriculum. Teachers have been inspired to think creatively about how they will deliver this and are ready to provide outstanding curriculum provision. This includes planning for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners, and the school's context, at a local, national and global level. Our aim is to prepare the young people in our care for a changing world, giving them the skills, knowledge, resilience and resourcefulness they will need in the future.

We are very much a Church of England  school and all that we do is underpinned by our Christian Values that have their roots in Christian narrative. Much of our Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural aspects of our work come from our Christian distinctiveness and Values.

Our curriculum is exciting and inspires children to nurture a passion for learning, in line with our vision statement, Christian values, aims and tag-line “Dream, Believe, Work, Achieve!”. 

Our expectations are for all pupils to achieve their potential and, as unique individuals, they will be supported and encouraged through a range of strategies (Including using a Mastery approach to learning, “Building Learning Power”) to be the best they can be, across a broad range of subjects and skills. 

For more detailed information about our curriculum, and to see it in action, please see below and on the individual class pages on our website. Homework has been re-organised in line with changes to our curriculum and Homework Grids can be found on the Homework page.

 

 

We use "Letters and Sounds" to teach phonics and support our teaching of  Reading and Writing. Our reading scheme is made up of a range of publication types including Project X, Oxford Literacy Web, Rigby Rockets, and real books, and is designed to foster a love of books and reading in all our children.

If parents require any further information about the curriculum at Bredon Hancock's CE First School please make an appointment to see the class teacher or particular curriculum leader. Miss Davies in the school office will direct you to the appropriate person.

Curriculum Redesign 2018-2020- Our own learning journey.

 

We have spent a great deal of time auditing our curriculum and practice, considering our school's current context, as well as understanding the new Ofsted Inspection Framework- 2019 and SIAMS Schedule- 2018 (statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) requirements.

Staff have been inspired to create themes of learning that excite and engage pupils, and that are fun to teach. They maximise opportunities for meeting national requirements as well as standards that we have set for ourselves.

We will continue to reflect on and revise our provision going forward. We recognise that our context and national influences change often and we will continue to be mindful of this.

Building Learning Power

Remote Learning- Statement of intent

At Bredon Hancock's Endowed CE First School, we understand the need to continually deliver high quality education, including during periods of remote working – whether for an individual pupil or many. The school vision is interwoven within our curriculum intent and design. We recognise the importance of maintaining high expectations in all areas of school life and ensuring that all pupils have access to the learning resources and support they need to succeed.

Where a class, group or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require pupils to remain at home, school will offer immediate remote education (by the next school day).

Through the implementation of our remote Learning Policy, we aim to:

  • Minimise the disruption to pupils’ education and the delivery of the curriculum.
  • Teach a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject so that pupils can progress through the school’s curriculum.
  • Align remote education to the planned school curriculum and link to our curriculum drivers (see above).
  • Use digital platforms consistently across the school in order to allow for high quality teaching and learning interactions, assessment and feedback.
  • Set work on Google Classroom and provide feedback to children around their learning and next steps.
  • Set meaningful and ambitious tasks and activities so that pupils have work each day in a number of different subjects which reflects the curriculum sequence which would be taught in school.
  • Ensure provision is in place so that all pupils have access to high quality learning resources both off-line and online including teaching videos and live input.
  • Be responsive to children’s learning by adjusting the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments of children or feedback from parents.
  • Differentiate work to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum that is suitably accessible and challenging to all pupils; especially children with SEND.
  • Provide school-owned laptops accompanied by a user agreement or printed resources, such as workbooks, to support learning for pupils who do not have suitable online access – supplemented with other forms of communication to keep pupils on track or answer questions about work.
  • Ensure all pupils have the provision they need to complete their work to the best of their ability, and to remain happy, healthy, and supported during periods of remote learning.
  • Monitor children’s engagement on a daily basis and remain in regular communication with parents via Google Classroom, Google Meet or telephone.
