Curriculum

Delivery of the planned curriculum was affected by lockdown closures for all schools.

Please see our 'covid-adjusted' long-term plans (LTPs) below and also in the Class Pages section of this site.

Teachers have carefully considered how much time should be allocated to different curriculum areas to ensure that we minimise learning loss and to  provide an opportunity to focus on subjects which were difficult to access during lockdown such as music and PE.  Each subject leader then maintains an overview of their own subject to ensure appropriate breadth, coverage and progression of skills within the subject as children progress through school.

National Curriculum & Early Years Framework at Grange

 

 

All children between the ages of 5 and 11 study the National Curriculum, which was revised in 2014.  The National Curriculum sets the content and learning objectives and is prescribed by the Department for Education – schools are free to develop the quality teaching and learning experiences to deliver it.

 

Children in Early Years will follow a new EYFS framework from Septemebr 2020. A link to the full document is here, with the overarching principles detailed below.

All schools are also required to teach religious education at all key stages. Primary schools are also required to teach Relationships Education as part of their wider PSHE curriculum from September 2020.

 

 

 

RE is a statutory subject taught in all primary schools.  In our school, we adopt the Lancashire RE SACRE syllabus.

 

PSHE is also taught through a thematic approach which includes Circle Time and assemblies. Since September 2012, we have integrated values education into our PSHE curriculum which we are confident will enrich the PSHE curriculum, and support our school in developing our 'Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural' (SMSC) understanding.

Since January 2017, we have also begun to implement the values and principles of UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools explicitly through our curriculum teaching and also through the developing ethos of our school.

From September 2020, all schools are required to teach Relationships & Health Education. In light of this, our current PSHE curriculum is under review and we have completed a consultation period with parents regarding our new Relationships Policy.

Reception pupils follow the Early Years Framework, which has been updated from September 2021

Overarching principles

Four guiding principles should shape practice in early years settings.

These are:

• every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured

• children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships

• children learn and develop well in enabling environments with teaching and support from adults, who respond to their individual interests and needs and help them to build their learning over time. Children benefit from a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.

• importance of learning and development. Children develop and learn at different rates.
