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
Surfleet’s curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure that pupils gain the knowledge and skills required for them to become self-motivated and successful learners, well placed for the next phase of education and for life beyond. Our curriculum framework ensures the children experience a broad, knowledge and vocabulary-rich curriculum, which is purposefully inter-linked and enriched with a wide range of opportunities to embed learning in the long-term memory and ensure future progression.
At Surfleet, our curriculum documentation is based the Early Years Framework in EYFS and the National Curriculum in Key Stage 1 & 2, however it is tailored to meet the needs of our children taking into account the local context and any emerging issues. Social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning is prioritised throughout the curriculum, ensuring that that pupils acquire the knowledge and cultural capital they need to become active and successful participants in today’s diverse society. Our school motto is intrinsic to our curriculum and supports the personal development of our pupils.
Surfleet is committed to providing every child with a fully inclusive curriculum experience; we carefully tailor our lessons to ensure that disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities can access our curriculum in full and experience success in doing so.
Reading opportunities are emphasised in every area of the curriculum and high-quality and engaging texts have been chosen to enhance the children’s understanding, knowledge and vocabulary across different subject areas.
