Curriculum

At Martock Primary School, we want our pupils to experience success through an exciting and cohesive curriculum. Our curriculum aims to provide engaging opportunities both in and out of school. The curriculum is organised so that children know more and remember more, through building blocks of knowledge and skills.

 

Where appropriate we ensure that cross curricular links are made (e.g. within topics) to enhance learning and make it relevant to children's interest and experiences.  We ensure the children have a range of learning experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning.  The curriculum, including core skills in Literacy and Numeracy, meets all statutory requirements.  It is designed to enthuse our children with a love of learning.

We strive to provide a curriculum which has a variety of enrichment activities that are integrated into the curriculum plans for each year group throughout the school year, both in and out of the classroom environment.

We are will aware that all children need the support of parents and teachers to make good progress in school.  We build positive links with the parents and carers of each child, by regularly keeping them informed about the way in which the children are being taught and how well each child is progressing.

Please see our Curriculum Policy.

Organisation and Planning

Each classroom has a teacher's planning board, displaying current subject plans.

1. Curriculum Overview 

This shows the titles of the topics that are to be taught in each term and which subject areas are taught within these.

2. Medium Term Plans

Within our medium-term plans, the teacher gives clear guidance on the learning objectives and teaching strategies, including computing, resources and cross-curricular links where appropriate.

These are developed by the class teacher and subject leader.

The topic titles originate from the Curriculum Overview.

The skills and knowledge covered within each Medium Term Plan come from the National Curriculum. Teachers will ensure that all the skills and objectives are covered  when they develop their MTPs.

3. Weekly Planning

Our weekly plans are written in detail for English and Maths using an agreed format.  We use these to set out the learning objectives and success criteria for each session, and to identify how work will be differentiated to suit the needs of all the children.  They are 'work in progress' during the week as continuous assessment will require changes and adaptations to be made.

4. The Early Years Foundation Stage

Teaching in the Foundation Stage class builds on the experiences of the children in their pre-school learning.  We collaborate with the pre-school providers in the area, particularly around transition.

During the children's first year, the Early Years Foundation Stage class teacher makes assessments using the Baseline and the Foundation Stage Profile.  This assessment forms and important part of the future curriculum planning for each child.

5. Monitoring and Review

Our governing body is responsible for monitoring the way the school curriculum is implemented.

The headteacher is responsible for the day to day organisation of the curriculum.

Every Teacher is a leader here at Martock

Subject leaders provide subject specific knowledge to support all teachers to deliver the best teaching and learning that we can. They deliver training, use time to monitor the way their subject is taught throughout the school. They review long-term and medium-term planning, and ensure that our teaching and learning has good impact upon the success and progress of all children. 

 

If you would like to find out more about our curriculum, please speak to Mrs Lafferty-Jenkins or Mrs Harrison. Each class page contains a curriculum overview for the term. This will  explain which subject areas, skills and knowledge the children will be developing throughout this topic.
