We have recently redesigned our Ghyllgrove Primary school curriculum. Our aim is to provide an up to date, rounded curriculum where children are taught key skills and knowledge and provided with the tools to become independent learners. Each topic is designed to enthuse children and ‘hook’ them. Subjects are interwoven to provide a consistent and flowing term of lessons.
We provide many rich and varied learning opportunities and enrichment activities through special days, events and trips.
Look on your child’s class page to keep up to date with all the exciting things happening this year. Please ask your child’s teacher if you would like any further information.
Children learn and develop in different ways. Teachers recognise this and use different teaching styles, resources and plan different levels of work in the classroom to cater for the various ways children learn. This is called Quality First Teaching and is something schools must provide for all children. However, many children, at some time in their school life, need extra help.
To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum there are some actions we may take to achieve this:
- Ensure that all pupils have access to the school curriculum and all school activities.
- Help all pupils achieve to the best of their abilities, despite any barriers or disability they may have.
- Pupils to gain in confidence and improve their self-esteem.
- To work in partnership with parents/ carers, pupils and relevant external agencies in order to provide for children’s special educational needs and disabilities.
- To identify at the earliest opportunity, all children that need special consideration to support their needs (whether these are educational, social, physical or emotional)
- To make suitable provision for children with SEND to fully develop their abilities, interests and aptitudes and gain maximum access to the curriculum.
- Ensure that all children with SEND are fully included in all activities of the school in order to promote the highest levels of achievement.
More information is available about English, Maths and Topic coverage in the curriculum letter that is sent home at the start of every term. Alternatively, this can be found on your child's class pages or a copy can be obtained via the school website or school office.
If you require any further information about your child's curriculum, our class teachers are happy to help you, or please contact the school office.
