Our curriculum offer is informed by our school Vision, Principles and Key Drivers.
At Camp Hill Primary School, we deliver a curriculum under pinned by our key drivers: Compassion, Community and Communication.
We offer rich and creative opportunities for children to learn and grow in a warm, caring and safe environment. Pastoral support and high regard for children’s mental health and well-being thread through all that we do.
We invest heavily in working with the community and families so that all our learners are fully enabled, engaged, supported and equipped.
Our broad and balanced curriculum promotes diversity and inclusion. We inspire learners through high quality first-hand experiences. This enables them to build on their existing and emerging talents and strengths.
Central to our curriculum is developing children’s communication skills so that they are able to maximise their learning potential, now and in the future. Where starting points are low, we focus on developing Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing alongside Maths and other National Curriculum subjects.
Our curriculum is designed to build on children’s prior knowledge and to support their cultural capital. We recognise the importance of starting with what children know and can do to develop and embed essential knowledge and skills.
We organise our curriculum using two approaches: teaching of discrete subjects and through a thematic approach. Every opportunity is taken to develop learning links within and across subjects over time.
Children are aware of their targets and they receive high quality teaching to enable them to achieve their goals.
Children actively contribute to lessons and teaching is bespoke and personalised to their needs. Positive feedback is used to support and encourage.
Teachers work hard to instil a passion for learning in all learners that will last a lifetime.
We are developing our approach to evaluating the impact of our curriculum. This includes how well our curriculum contributes to our Vision, Principles and Key Drivers.
We use a wide range of monitoring strategies to provide us with useful information about impact including pupil interviews, outcome data, books, questionnaires and journals and we will continue to develop the evaluation process using these.
