Curriculum Implementation & Impact
Our curriculum Implementation & Impact
The IMPLEMENTATION of our curriculum has been carefully considered and is delivered through our core values:
Considerate - We do what is best for ourselves and others
Confident - We believe in our ability and challenge ourselves
Creative - We use our imaginations to question, think and inquire
Cultured - We think about and understand the world around us
Each subject has a long-term map that explicitly identifies and sequences the core knowledge and concepts that children learn across each cycle or unit of work. This is the foundational knowledge we want all children to recall.
The curriculum contains:
regular retrieval and spaced practice to form durable, long-term memories of knowledge, expertise and understanding. This frequent and systematic revisiting is also designed to develop vocabulary, literacy and numeracy which are fundamental to all learning.
identified resources, such as knowledge organisers that precisely stipulate relevant tier 2/3 vocabulary and the core knowledge for each cycle/unit of work.
explicit strategies to support children in self-regulating their learning and developing meta cognitive skills
Reading is the cornerstone of our learning at Stoke Fleming, we believe it is the key which unlocks learning and encourage everyone to read whether it be for pleasure or information. In order to provide our pupils with the very best foundations we follow the Read Write Inc scheme, more information can be found here
All subject content is ambitious and challenging for pupils at each stage in their learning. Where subjects carry heavy substantive knowledge for individual year groups (Science, History and Geography) pupils will be taught in those year groups to support this knowledge acquisition. Our subject specific curriculum plans can be found here
We have high expectations for the IMPACT of our curriculum. Pupils will have the knowledge and skills, as a firm foundation, for the rest of their educational journey. A Stoke Fleming pupil, will be eloquent, have high aspirations for the future, will be an enquiring independent learner, who is thoughtful about the world around them and resilient to change or failure. During their journey through our school, we will have provided the children with rich curriculum opportunities, to enable them to explore, dream and discover the world around them.
