The nature of the curriculum is one of legal requirement and what we feel as professionals will best serve the development of the whole child – academically, socially, spiritually and morally.
This statement is fundamental to our ethos as is our belief as a church school, in developing a Christian ethos in the school community. The church has a special place in our school and we aim to nurture this in our everyday life inside school.
The curriculum we offer here at Chadsmoor Juniors is one that will inspire, enthuse and engage children in their learning, whilst ensuring that we meet our statutory obligations.
Science, Computing, Design and Technology, History, Geography and Art are taught through a creative topic based curriculum where children develop the skills specified in the National Curriculum Programmes of study
Maths, Literacy, PE, Languages, PSHE and RE are taught discreetly although they may be linked to the theme where appropriate. Children are given opportunities to transfer Literacy and Maths skills throughout each topic.
Each topic begins with an ‘Inspiration Day’ when pupils are involved in something special and different. Curriculum Newsletters are sent during the first week of each half term. They are available in the folders below.
