At Church Broughton Primary School, we aim to provide a vibrant, balanced and quality education for each child. We plan for work to be stimulating and interesting and to challenge all children.
We have planned a topic based curriculum that is creative, fun and focused on knowledge, skills and understanding. By linking subjects through a theme, the work becomes more exciting and motivating. At our school, we plan on a two-year cycle to ensure coverage is not repeated in any of our classes. We do, in addition, plan for discrete teaching in some subjects. In this way, children are able to recognise the individual nature of specific subjects while also appreciating the links between different curriculum areas.
In line with most schools, we work from and develop the National Curriculum to meet our children’s needs. In doing this we place a high emphasis on basic skills to enable our children to achieve well. The School meets the full requirements of the National Curriculum (NC) which is divided into two parts.
Core Curriculum: English, Maths, Science, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Religious Education (RE)
Foundation Subjects: Music, History, Geography, Physical Education (PE), Personal Social Health Education (PSHE), Art and Design, Design Technology (DT), Modern Foreign Language – French, Citizenship
We always endeavour to create an enriched curriculum for our children, injecting varied and rich learning experiences. Every term each class has at least one first-hand learning experience; they might go on a visit or we may invite a visitor into school. We also have themed days each term, where children work in their houses, giving them opportunity to work with children from across the school on a particular topic.
