Our curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum. We enhance and adapt this with well-planned opportunities that make up the wider school curriculum. Learning is always exciting and placed in a meaningful context for children. Where links exist between subjects and areas of learning, lessons are taught using a cross-curricular approach. Where this is not appropriate subjects are taught discretely. The practice and application of basic skills learned in the core curriculum is a driver for the entire curriculum.
We place a strong emphasis on the development of the basic skills necessary to be confident independent learners and successful adults. Children rapidly begin to learn how to write and improve the complexity of their sentences in our school through the consistent use of sentence ladders and ‘kung-fu’ punctuation. All children engage in a daily literacy skills session where they develop their reading and writing skills in addition to developing a command of the relevant grammatical aspects of the English language. In addition, all children take part in Mental Maths sessions alongside daily Mathematics lessons.
At Albrighton Primary School, children develop a strong sense of moral purpose in addition to a respect and understanding of people who have different characteristics to themselves, whether that be age, disability, gender, race or sexuality. A well planned curriculum, delivered by committed staff in an ethos of care and support, enables our pupils to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have a desire to learn and respect for all around them.
Religious Education is delivered through the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus 2014.
We follow the Letters and Sounds guidance and use a phonic reading scheme in Reception and Key Stage 1 called Phonics Bug.
