Curriculum

 

The curriculum at Seven Sisters Primary School sets out the body of knowledge and skills that our pupils will gain at each stage of their time at the school.

 

Our curriculum has been adopted in order to support pupils to build their knowledge and to apply that knowledge as skills.  Using the National Curriculum to underpin our curriculum, subjects are planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and towards clearly defined end points.

 

Our continued ambition is to develop a curriculum which broad in scope, relevant to our children, highly coherent and carefully sequenced. Alongside our work in the classroom, we strive to provide a range of educational visits and enrichment opportunities which will provide our children with the cultural capital they will need to succeed in their education and in life beyond Seven Sisters Primary School.

 

All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language. Our aim is to provide a rich, challenging curriculum, which stretches all of our children.  

 

For most subjects, the school has adopted, and then adapted, external schemes of work.  Our curriculum is implemented through a whole-school strategic approach to the spiritual, cultural and moral development of pupils in order to equip them for life and to make the world a better place.

 

How we teach our curriculum:

 

Our curriculum is taught through:

  • well taught and appropriately sequenced content
  • thoughtfully designed assessment practice
  • consideration of an appropriate model of progression

 

The curriculum is:

  • knowledge-rich
  • cumulative; it allows pupils to make conscious connections in its content, across subjects, through vocabulary choices. Our staff make these connections explicit.
  • vocabulary-rich
