The curriculum at Stoke Bishop Church of England Primary School flows from our vision:
‘Believing it’s Possible’
This means that the learning we provide is based on a belief in all children and their ability. The themes that they study are intended to stretch their understanding, appreciation of and commitment to, the world in which they live.
We believe that it is possible, through the right experiences to nurture children who engage with what is happening locally, nationally and internationally. In this, we want them to develop an independence of mind; to be children who have opinions and who understand the need to take responsibility for themselves.
The children study five or six themes across the year, each with clear subject specific objectives drawn from the national curriculum. The focus and order of these themes varies in relation to the year group and Hubs that they belong to. In Reception, the children continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.
We have key Teaching & Learning principles underpinning the content of this curriculum that impact on how the content is approached and, together with our School Values of Passion, Integrity, Grace and Courage, provide children with a successful platform for their ongoing development as successful learners throughout their lives.
Each year group has a long term plan that is reviewed each year. This sets out what is being studied from a subject perspective:
