Surfleet Primary School follows the National Curriculum in all subjects and has adopted the local authority agreed syllabus for religious education. A new National Curriculum was introduced to schools in September 2014.
Curriculum Intent Statement
At Surfleet Primary School, our subject-based curriculum has been developed as part of The Welland Primary Schools Federation. Our intention has been driven by the desire to:
Create a world-class mastery curriculum, facilitated by quality first teaching, which gives every child every opportunity to become a master of learning and develop a deep knowledge and understanding of all subjects contained therein.
Each school celebrates its own identity and the assurance that the curriculum enables us to build strong relationships, celebrate diversity, encourage respect and build a sense of community. It provides and acknowledges success for all children and in all aspects of their emotional, social and academic development. It develops the skills set to enable every child to become a confident and important member of society in modern Britain.
To enable the children of Surfleet Primary School to achieve a confident and positive attitude to lifelong learning, through high levels of curiosity, concentration and enjoyment, our curriculum:
- Is aspirational – our intention is to make children aware of the opportunities available to them now and in the future.
- Develops oracy –our intention is to equip children with effective communication skills and language knowledge so they can access all opportunities available to them.
- Develops cultural understanding – our intention is to support children to be aware of the diverse cultures that exist within modern Britain and the wider world, both now and in the past.
- Broadens horizons – our intention is to provide children with an in depth knowledge of their own locality and heritage and compare this to other localities, national and international, to deepen their own understanding and tolerance
In summary, our children will learn more, know more, remember more, enjoy more and develop more academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally. Thus enabling them to be resilient and confident in all challenges within learning and life. Our children will then be the best versions of themselves in all aspects of modern life today.
