Curriculum

At Irchester Community Primary School, we aim to inspire all children to reach their full social and educational potential by creating resilient and confident learners with a lifelong love of learning. Through an exciting and varied education in a caring and inclusive learning environment, the children will gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to become global citizens with high aspirations for the future.

Our curriculum aims for all pupils are –

  • To understand the purpose of learning
  • To have secure knowledge
  • To have a values driven curriculum
  • To gain knowledge of the wider world
  • To have ambition for the future

EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE

In the Early Years Foundation Stage the children are taught to develop characteristics for effective learning: playing and exploring, active learning, plus creating and thinking critically. The curriculum is organised around the three prime areas of learning and four specific areas of learning.

Prime areas of learning:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language

Specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

The curriculum is delivered both indoors and outdoors. Opportunities are provided for children to learn in a variety of ways, guided and independent. We build on children’s prior knowledge, skills and understanding and ensure equality of access to all areas of learning in a high quality learning environment.

KEY STAGE 1 AND 2

In Key Stages 1 and 2 we teach a curriculum based on knowledge, skill and understanding of the essential skills for learning and life: literacy, numeracy, ICT and personal and social skills.

These skills are applied through creative units of work that engage children in the study of the national curriculum subjects: Science, Art, Design Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, French and Religious Education.
