Our intent for the curriculum at Summerswood is to ensure that everybody:
1) Reaches their full potential
2) Loves learning and develops life-long learning skills
3) Feels safe, happy and healthy
4) Develops high levels of self-esteem and emotional intelligence, and excellent social skills
5) Is ready for the next step on their educational journey by the time they leave our school.
Our school aims to be happy, caring and inclusive. The staff and governors value all of the pupils equally and celebrate everyone’s diversity. We place a high value on mutual trust and respect. We expect our children to work hard and take ownership of their learning and to demonstrate exemplary standards of behaviour.
Summerswood is determined to work in partnership with parents and carers as we face the challenge of meeting the developmental and learning needs of all children. We place a high value on the positive relationship we have with families, as this partnership is crucial to ensure all children are successful, both academically and socially. Our school is a place where children, parents and staff respect each other.
Across the year the curriculum is reviewed by the Governing Body and Senior Leadership team, to ensure we offer the best possible learning opportunities for every child.
Please note: We are currently reviewing our curriculum in line with the new framework, therefore some of the information on this page is subject to change - Nov 2019.
At Summerswood Primary School we strive to ensure that we provide excellent curriculum opportunities for all our children.
Teachers use their subject knowledge to deliver effective lessons that challenge children and provide appropriate support. Teachers that have specific subject knowledge work with colleagues to plan and deliver fun and engaging lessons for children across the school.
We have planned our curriculum to deliver learning progressively, building on previous learning and exploring key concepts through discussions.
We use assessment both formatively and summatively to accurately assess children's knowledge and skills. We ensure that key information, concepts and skills are retained in children's long-term memory by linking new knowledge to previous learning.
On the subject pages below, you can find more information about each specific subject, including topics for each year group, skills progression and implementation strategies.
