At Abbey View Primary Academy we will offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and will build on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through the academy. We will make use of our Academy freedoms to adapt the Abbey View curriculum to meet the learning and developmental needs of our pupils. The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for the next stage of their education.
The curriculum will be delivered using an integrated topic approach and assessed using Target Tracker to ensure coverage and progression are happening throughout the school. The more able are challenged further in their learning and children who find aspects of their learning more difficult are appropriately supported, so that they too are enabled to experience success. The curriculum is underpinned by the school’s Core Values (aspiration, resilience, respect and integrity) and these are taught on their own and through other areas of the curriculum, including assemblies. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the values of our society are woven through the curriculum.
The outdoor environment and the local community are considered an opportunity for active learning for all our pupils. The academy grounds have been developed so they can enrich different curriculum areas.
Pupils have opportunities to share their learning with each other, their parents and carers and other learners through school-based and external exhibitions, performances, competitions and events involving other schools.
Developing their independence and motivation as learners and their sense of responsibility as future citizens is at the heart of all our teaching and learning.
