Our Curriculum Statement
Our aim at Curwen Primary School is to help each child to achieve their best, ensuring every child matters. In order to do this, we believe in creating a positive and secure environment in which children can learn. We place great emphasis on good manners, respect and consideration for others. We encourage children to become more self-confident, resilient, mature and independent. We also encourage them to recognise the importance of making a positive contribution to the life of the school.
In order to achieve this aim, children are taught a broad and balanced curriculum covering all areas of the national curriculum:-
English, Maths, Science, Information and Communication Technology, History, Geography, Physical Education, Music, Art, Design Technology, Religious Education, PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizen ship Education.)
In KS2 children are also taught Spanish as part of our Modern Foreign Language Programme.
In the Foundation Stage this is covered by the seven areas of learning:-
Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Understanding the World, Physical Development and Expressive art and design.
At Curwen we use the Read Write Inc (RML) system for the teaching of Reading and Phonics across in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and, where appropriate, in Key Stage 2. We have also adapted the Maths Makes Sense Programme for the teaching of Maths in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Years 3/4.
