Our curriculum has been designed to promote and sustain a thirst for knowledge and understanding and a love of learning. We cover a wide range of subjects and provide opportunities for academic, creative and sporting excellence. Emphasis is placed on acquiring, developing and applying core skills in reading, writing, communication and mathematics.
The breath of our curriculum helps prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life in modern Britain. Our excellence is reflected by quality marks gained by the school, which subject leaders use to guide improvement work and evaluate the impact of their actions.
Our Values-based education philosophy underpins our work to actively promote fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures. A rounded programme of assemblies and events promote children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, enabling them to develop their own moral and ethical compass to guide what is right and what is wrong.
The Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum is designed with progression, achievement and mastery of skills at its core. As children move up the school, the skills they gain are revisited, consolidated and built-upon, in order for them to achieve mastery across the National Curriculum, rooted in a wide-range of interesting and imaginative contexts. All children will begin a learning challenge with a WOW – a hook to get them engaged, and will end the learning journey with a reflection task. This allows learning to be cyclical and gives children the opportunity to evaluate their understanding.
Information about what is taught each year is available below.
Our curriculum and assessment are integrated partners. Together they set out what children are expected to know, understand and do, and when.
