A new primary National Curriculum was introduced in September 2014, for Key Stages 1 and 2. The full National Curriculum document can be found here:
The Curriculum at Camp School
At Camp we have developed a curriculum which not only fulfils the requirements of the Primary Curriculum 2014 but includes our own school curriculum. Our overall aim is to provide an effective curriculum which is purposeful and relevant; bringing to life our school values and meeting the needs of all our pupils.
The curriculum has been developed over the last few years in consultation with members of the school community and continues to develop and expand.
At the heart of our curriculum are our four school ‘Curriculum Drivers’, which were chosen to reflect the needs of our children and our school community. These are:
Spiritual and Moral
Global and Local Community
The curriculum at Camp is set out in three stages:
Long Term content based on the requirements of the NC over a two year period which allows for progression through year groups, continuity and breadth and depth of learning.
Medium Term engagement which includes essential skills around which themes are developed . These are not static and are chosen on a termly basis based upon the long term content but shaped around the needs of the children in an engaging and inspiring way with strong links between subjects. The drivers are used as a focus for planning and the children are encouraged to steer the direction of their learning based on their questions and relevant interests. The themes often start with an engaging launch event.
Short term standards that are planned on a weekly and daily basis that are driven by the skills and knowledge the children need to learn. There is a big emphasis on teaching basic skills in Literacy and Maths which can be transferable to new learning.
We also hold regular whole school theme weeks or days which bring together the whole school community and further develop the drivers which are at the heart of our curriculum.
In Early Years and in Key Stage 1 we follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme.
