Welcome to the curriculum area of our school website. We hope you find it informative and that the information it contains helps you support your child's learning at home.
This section shares the vision we have for our children. Our school curriculum is present in all that we do. From assemblies to playtimes to lesson in classrooms.
In this space, you will find subject specific information and also our half termly 'Curriculum Maps'. The subject information shares our long term plans, the intention for each subject and some lovely photographs of the subjects in action. Each half term, you will also find a new curriculum map for each year group which elaborates on the the long term plans. These are the most up to date an relevant information for you to be aware of. Information about trips, specific texts etc and dates to remember can be found here. We hope that by organising our curriculum information in this way, it is accessible to all and is easily understood.
If you would like to know any more about our school curriculum or feel can support it in any way, please get in touch.
Whole School Curriculum Intention
At Sudley Junior School, we intend to offer our children a well sequenced, broad and balanced, challenging and inclusive curriculum which meets the requirements of the National Curriculum. Underpinned by our belief in their limitless potential, our curriculum is built upon the foundations of reading, writing and arithmetic and is shaped according to what our children need to know, understand and do in order to thrive.
Our curriculum promotes pupils children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and allows our pupils to
Enjoy and achieve by building on their unique strengths, interests and experiences,
Be resilient and engaged in the process of their own learning
Be happy, enthusiastic, reflective and committed learners who have a thirst for learning
Develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas, enabling them to make sustained progress.
Develop their confidence and capacity to learn both collaboratively and independently
Think creatively, engage in problem solving, be adventurous and explore areas of interest
Understand the importance of pursuing a safe and healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally.
Form positive relationships which are based on a respect for themselves and others and develop their self esteem
Become responsible, respectful and caring citizens who celebrate diversity and make a positive contribution to the school and the wider community.
We teach the 2014 Primary National Curriculum using a subject based approach and making appropriate cross curricular links. Cultural experiences are central to the children’s learning and play a significant role in fostering the engagement, motivation and creativity that our children have to offer. We aim to use a range of evidence – based teaching approaches in order to ensure knowledge, skills and understanding are reinforced and embedded. We evaluate our practice regularly against what we know works.
In the section below you will find out more about the intention of each individual subject and its long term overview. You can also enjoy some photographs of the subject in action at our school.
