Greenfield & Pulloxhill Academy's vision is 'Nurture, Inspire, Flourish.' Through our curriculum we strive to develop the skills, knowledge and learning attitudes of our children so that they can become life-long learners.
Our Values help children to develop their social and moral code, as they build their sense of uniqueness and self-worth. We believe all children deserve the opportunity to nurture their individual talents and to achieve their true potential. We encourage our children to embrace all that multi-cultural Britain has to offer them and develop their understanding of the wider world.
We give high priority to teaching reading, writing and maths, every day, to ensure that all pupils acquire the basic skills for learning and life. These skills are used and practised across other subjects. We teach to the Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum using a wide range of strategies. We give children the opportunity to work individually, in pairs and in groups. We aim to inspire our children by teaching a broad curriculum that has been designed with them in mind. 'Big Questions' begin the children's learning journey in many subjects and these are revisited at the end of a topic so that the children can articulate their learning. Continuity and progression in the curriculum will be built around essential knowledge, understanding and key skills within subject areas, and these are broken down into year group expectations. We want our children to celebrate in their successes and build on disappointments in order to develop resilience and have high aspirations in order to flourish.
Our Values Education is essential to all aspects of life at the academy. There are 22 school values that have been crafted to fit our school community and these are celebrated individually each month. Values are explored as a whole-school theme in assemblies, class and non-structured times by all staff. Staff develop year group specific long-term curriculum maps, which identify when the different subjects and topics will be taught across the year. Our short term plans are produced on a weekly and daily basis. These are used to set out the learning objectives for each lesson, identifying activities and resources which will be used to achieve them.
The curriculum is monitored and evaluated to ensure that it is working, through a rigorous quality assurance process. Each pupil’s progress is discussed as part of the
teacher’s appraisal/performance management. Pupil progress meetings take place with the members of the SLT at least twice a year and include discussion around
assessments, targets, work scrutiny and observation/pupil voice.
At Greenfield & Pulloxhill Academy we aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum through carefully considered topics with key concepts that we aim to cover across the year groups. Our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. Please find the links below to our curriculum maps from Reception to Year 4.
