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 to meet the needs of our mixed age classes. 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 within the Keystone Academy Trust celebrates its own identity. The curriculum has been developed 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 and embeds the knowledge to enable every child to become a confident learner.
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
