ARCHBISHOP COURTENAY PRIMARY SCHOOL IS A 'GOOD' SCHOOL
National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report (SIAMS) - June 2015

Parents Information Curriculum

Through our curriculum design and content, we endeavour to ensure that every child throughout the school receives a differentiated, broad and balanced curriculum, positively encouraging creativity, with subjects being taught through a discrete and cross-curricular approach. This is all done with a focus on providing inspiration and aspiration to all of our pupils.

Since the introduction of the New National Curriculum in 2014, and as an academy, we are very fortunate to be able to take on exciting new topics, working with an ability to approach them creatively. We focus on providing an engaging and enriching curriculum, tailored to the needs of all pupils and giving them opportunities to learn using all of the resources at our disposal particularly our amazing grounds.

Our Creative Curriculum helps our children to unlock their full potential through the following:

Promoting safe learning that is well organised and stimulating.
Allowing children to understand what they have to do to assess their own work and make progress.
Well differentiated and organised planning allowing every child to achieve.
Practical experiences that stimulate further questions and research.
An environment that encourages positive behaviour and British values.
Encouragement to reflect on their learning.
Engagement between pupils and parents/guardians to discuss learning.
An understanding, and application of Maths and English within relevant contexts.

In our curriculum, we follow the nationally agreed programmes of study in all subjects, ensuring that children are taught a wide range of skills and knowledge. We wish for them to be inspired, strive to be the best that they can, and also be prepared for the next stage in their education and the challenges of life in 21st century Britain. At the heart of all of this, as a faith school, we also ensure that RE and our school values are firmly embedded into all aspects of the curriculum, and indeed school life.

We use a topic approach in teaching Humanities (History, Geography), incorporating RE, music and art where appropriate. This is planned on a cycle to ensure that children do not repeat topics, and it also allows staff and children an ability to plan together, enabling far greater flexibility in use of the curriculum time. It also allows us to create those truly inspirational moments - through in-school activities, outdoor learning opportunities, trips or workshops and also ensure that all children are able to engage through the differentiation of their learning.

We place importance on organising trips to a range of places (such as Duxford Imperial War Museum and Living Land), workshops on a range of subjects, and engaging in local events to be actively involved and supportive of the local community and other schools. We also host a range of extra-curricular clubs. All of these help to ensure that our pupils have access and opportunities to experience learning in a variety of forms and contribute to their Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development.
