Our Curriculum Vision
“Children can learn almost anything if they are dancing, tasting,
touching, hearing, seeing and feeling information” J Houston
At Kingsway Primary School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding experience for everyone; it should be enjoyable. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives. This policy highlights classroom practices and procedures that promote high quality teaching and learning. If you would like to find out more about our Curriculum, then please look under the year group tabs. Then look in the ‘Parent Overview’ section (tabs at the top of the page). This shows everyone how we break up the national curriculum into sections and then add our own magic ‘sparkle’ to keep learning inspiring and relevant to our pupils.
Our Curriculum is an important and unique feature of our school.
We believe that children learn best by doing things they enjoy and we make learning practical, exciting and above all fun. Using the National Curriculum as a starting point, our pupils are taught through a carefully planned programme of structured teacher led and independent activities which challenge and excite. Our ‘Successful Learners’ programme runs as a thread through tout out school ensuring that we all know what works well and use it to best advantage.
Learning doesn’t just stop at 3.15pm
On average we have had over 20 after school clubs running each week. There are very few primary schools that can rival that! For example, would your child like to try horse riding, cheerleading, cooking or belong to one of our school teams? Led by our pupils’ wish list, the teachers will try to accommodate their interests with a fresh set of clubs every term.
When the school bell sounds, that’s when our pupils opt to
stay a bit longer.
This is a school that pupils and parents value.
