Curriculum Overview

OUR CURRICULUM

At Grosvenor Road Primary School we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that enables all children to ‘be the best they can be’. The English and mathematics curriculum follows ‘mastery principals’: ensuring children have opportunities to embed learning before moving onto the next topic. The curriculum is inclusive and imaginative : stimulating young minds as well as preparing them for the modern world.

 

English


Literature lies at the heart of the school’s English curriculum: the children read both contemporary and classical British authors as well as literature from around the world. The termly plan is split into two three week units of work – enabling children to master a writing style before moving on.

 

Mathematics


There is a termly plan for each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. Each term is split into twelve weeks. As part of each overview, a significant amount of time is devoted to developing key number concepts each year. This ensures students build their fluency, as number sense will affect their success in other areas of mathematics. Students who are successful with number are much more confident mathematicians.

 

The wider curriculum

The National Curriculum subjects are taught discretely, this ensures children become skilled in Science, Computing and the foundation subjects. The school is committed to developing an appreciation of visual and performance art alongside inspiring the next generation of historians and geographers. Throughout the curriculum the British values of: democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs are interwoven. Children are taught a weekly Religious Education lesson - the school follows the locally agreed syllabus which was updated in 2016 (this can be found in the menu on the left).
