Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day?

Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

 

Our aim is for every child to be 'caring, sharing and learning together' and we value celebrating success in school life to enable our children to become life long learners and responsible citizens in society.  Our vision and values translate into a creative, child-centered curriculum, which is broad and balanced to meet the needs of all children at every stage in their learning.  Our lessons are carefully designed to meet the needs of all learners through differentiated challenges, bronze (basic learning), silver (advanced learning) and gold (deeper learning).  To encourage independence and ownership of their learning, our children are encouraged to choose their own learning challenge, at other times the class teacher facilitates the learning.  Our curriculum is ambitious to challenge the more able learners through greater depth teaching.  An ambitious curriculum which is also designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged or SEND children the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

 

Our curriculum is a framework for setting out the aims of our programme of education including;

 

  • The knowledge and understanding to be gained at each stage (intent)
  • Translating that framework over time into a structure, narrative and with subject specific pedagogy (implementation)
  • Evaluating what knowledge and understanding children have gained against expectations (impact)

 

Addressing the learning gaps

 

Many children may have gaps in their knowledge and understanding after an extended period of disrupted teaching due to the pandemic.  We have carried summative assessments (on-going assessment in class) and are in the process of re-designing our curriculum maps to ensure the essentials are covered in class.  For the children's mental health and well-being, it is important that we assess the 'stage' (skills they currently have) they are at in their learning, rather than the 'age' (standard to attain at the end of each year) they are expected to be.  Further gaps will develop unless the children have a solid foundation and understanding of the basic skills in each subject.

 

At King's Court we are addressing the learning gaps through:

 

Tailored challenges:  bronze, silver and bronze:  learning challenges are adapted the learning needs of the children

Catch up groups:  focusing on key gaps across reading, writing and mathematics

Provision maps:  small step targets for children with SEND

School led tutoring:  1:1 support for individuals
