At Manor Primary School, it is our intent to:
'Develop happy, confident and caring young citizens who are well prepared for the future as lifelong learners.'
Our Curriculum is:
We aim to achieve our intent through 'the provision of excellent teaching and learning in every classroom, across all areas of the curriculum and through having high expectations of all our children',
Our curriculum is delivered through a thematic approach and takes the children on a 'journey' which starts with a question and finishes with a celebration of the answer.
Each component of our curriculum works together in order to create a 'Love of Learning' for each and every child in Manor Primary School. This can best be shown in the 'Love of Learning' diagrams.
All children will experience a high quality curriculum that not only incorporates the formal requirements of the curriculum but also looks to create a broad and a balanced curriculum through providing enriching experiences for our children.
Our curriculum is skills based and focuses on a progression of skills across year groups. We aim to develop the skills needed to become successful in each subject area.
Our curriculum allows for regular opportunities to overlearn which will aid retention of key facts and help them to be applied in problem solving situations.
We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others, whilst developing knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning, in order that they achieve their true potential.
'Thoughtful Thursday' and half termly 'Community Days' allow us to focus on developing caring citizens with an understanding of themselves and the world around them.
Our children develop detailed knowledge and skills across the curriculum and as a result are ready for the next stage of education.
Assessments are completed at the end of each topic and end of year assessments are made across each subject which shows the learning tht has taken place. However, we also look at the everyday behaviours and interactions of our pupils which show how the broader curriculum has developed flourishing children who are ready to go out into the world.
We have a focus on skill development across the curriculum and focus on how these skills progress as children journey through the school.
