Addison Curriculum Overview
At Addison we have created our curriculum by consulting with our children, staff and parent community. Below are our school intent:
Our school ethos is firmly rooted in our values with a love of learning being the foundation of everything we do, so that we really learn together, play together and achieve together.
Through working with middle leaders and subject leaders, we have crafted our own curriculum which balances the national expectations and an all-encompassing range of experiences allowing our children to flourish. This has been achieved through the creation of specific skills each year group learns across the curriculum as we want to ensure our children develop the relevant subject skills alongside subject knowledge.
Our classroom environments will reflect the learning and there will be an emphasis on cross curricular learning and vocabulary.
We will also evaluate our curriculum to always ensure the intent of our curriculum is being met and our marking policy will provide opportunities for children to understand their achievement of the Learning Objective alongside additional opportunities to extend and support their learning.
We will use pop quizzes throughout a topic to allow class teachers opportunities to gauge the understanding of concepts taught. We will also use our school curriculum handbooks to ensure skills are taught therefore allowing progression between each subject.
The impact of our curriculum will also be monitored and reviewed to allow for necessary amendments which will be based on: pupil voice, book looks, reviewing learning, policy development, individual feedback and self-reflection.
