Our engaging enquiry-based curriculum provides opportunities for all children to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. We aim for all children to become innovators, creative thinkers & be emotionally resilient to be equipped to, not only succeed in life, but to flourish along the journey.
Our staff and children use their Heart to find a Love of learning, passion to investigate & explore. They use their Head to gain knowledge and have Courage to try new things, taking risks in their learning. Together they use their Hands carefully to work together, showing Respect for each other and the world around them, being creative to become experts within their Enquiry Journey.
Implementation / Quality First Teaching
We believe Quality First Teaching is a style of teaching that emphasises high quality, inclusive teaching for all pupils across our school. This will include specific learning activities designed to meet pupils’ needs; differentiated learning, strategies to support SEND pupils, as well as other vulnerable groups. It is vital that we use on-going formative assessment to help meet the needs of our learners. This is achieved through high quality levels of assessment, pupil learning feedback and pupil engagement. Our Teaching & Learning Policy reflects the research and beliefs when delivering our curriculum in school. This can be found under Policies.
Our Curriculum runs on a two-year cycle to support our mixed-year group structure across the school. Subject Leaders have created a clear progression of skills for their subject to ensure pupils learning journeys are clear and supported following assessment of their knowledge & understanding. Class teachers use this progression alongside observations in class to ensure each child makes good progress in every lesson. Below you can find a copy of the provision map for this year.
From their starting points, all children will make good progress academically, emotionally, creatively, socially and physically in line with our current School Improvement Plan. (Click here to view SIP) Knowledge, understanding, and skills will be secured and embedded so that children attain highly and are fully prepared for secondary school.
Our children will understand how to be socially, morally, spiritually and culturally responsible, aware of how to make positive contributions to the local community and endeavour to be the best that they can be. We aim for all of our children to leave Kingsclere CE Primary School with a clear understanding of Christian values, strong communication skills and the ability to listen respectfully and with tolerance to the views of others. They will demonstrate emotional resilience, courage and the ability to persevere when they encounter challenge. They will develop a sense of self-awareness and become confident in their own abilities. They will be kind, respectful and honest, demonstrate inclusive attitudes and have a sense of their role in our wider society.
