At Kingsfield Primary School, our curriculum is designed to be broad and balanced. It enables children to learn skills and realise talents, develop character and resilience, and to learn about British values, diversity and mental health and well-being. Our curriculum allows children to develop cultural capital which, in turn, enables them to succeed academically and engage successfully in wider society.
The Kingsfield curriculum is based on the development of both skills and knowledge. We believe that it is vital that these are developed alongside each other as they are intrinsically linked. Our curriculum is designed to make strong links between and across all year groups and is progressive, building on and enriching children’s learning throughout their time in school.
Kingsfield Primary School is at the heart of a local community that is rich in historical and geographical significance and, therefore, our curriculum is led by the humanities. The local history, heritage and geographical links are an inherent part of our curriculum design, creating learning which is relevant and unique to the children at our school.
Educational visits, immersion days and outdoor learning are at the heart of our thematic, enriched curriculum; we believe that exposure to these first hand experiences equip our children with lifelong skills that enhance and embed their learning.
Parental and community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum. We endeavour to educate the children and school community so that they will go forward to be a positive influence on society and the environment in which they live.
Children leave our school with enquiring minds and embedded life skills. They are secondary ready and have the confidence to take risks, be evaluative and become life-long learners.
We have a range of initiatives that support the intentions outlined above including Commando Joe's RESPECT curriculum and the Resilience Framework.
