Curriculum Intent Statement for Kineton Green Primary
Pupils’ learning and development is at the heart of our school’s curriculum.
Our intent is to create a safe, enjoyable and exciting community in which every person is valued and encouraged to explore their potential in an infinitely changing world. Underpinning this are our values of respect, safety, trust, confidence and engagement in learning through a broad and balanced curriculum.
At Kineton Green Primary we have designed our curriculum with pupils’ learning at the centre which is centred around our values of the ‘5 Bees.’
Be safe and healthy
Be trustworthy and honest
Be a lifelong learner
Become the bees’ knees at Kineton Green!
We recognise that a curriculum has to be broad, balanced and offer pupils opportunities to grow as individuals as well as learners.
We aim to ensure pupils enjoy learning and feel prepared for life after school; through classroom learning experiences and inspiring extra-curricular activities that are designed to build resilience, confidence and self-esteem.
We recognise that pupils make the best progress through being appropriately challenged and supported to develop the skills and knowledge to be critical, creative, caring and collaborative learners.
Implementation of the Curriculum
The curriculum will be implemented through good quality first teaching, enriched experiences and purposeful learning through explicit links to our school values – The 5 Bees. This will be supported by robust assessment enabling timely interventions to support all pupils including vulnerable and disadvantaged students.
Year group curriculums have been designed to be progressive, enabling pupils to build on and solidify their skills, knowledge and vocabulary by engaging and responding to key questions linked to specifically chosen themes.
Permeating this will be a planned programme of study of a range of artists, scientists, thinkers, politicians, mathematicians, sports men and women, explorers and historical figures covering the key cultural people, works and concepts to inspire and motivate our pupils. These will be relevant to Kineton Green’s curriculum content, helping empower the children to take an active role in their own future and that of others.
