Governing bodies are required to produce a curriculum statement annually. This replaces the requirement under the School Framework and Standards Act 1998 for a curriculum plan.
From September 2014 there is an expectation from the government for all mainstream primary schools to deliver the new National Curriculum. Although Seer Green CE School is an academy, we have adapted our curriculum accordingly to ensure that we meet the current aims and statutory requirements.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum (2014) and the Buckinghamshire Sacre Agreed Syllabus. We enhance this with planned opportunities that make up the wider school curriculum. Our aim is to offer a broad and balanced range of learning experiences. These experiences, both inside and outside the classroom, include those that are practical, aesthetic, physical, social, cultural, spiritual and moral.
In KS1 and Years 3 and 4, subjects are taught using a cross-curricular approach. Where this is not achievable subjects are taught discretely. In Years 5 and 6, subjects are taught discretely.
We aim to equip pupils with the skills and knowledge necessary to confidently face challenges that may face them in their future lives, to be independent thinkers and learners.
We aim to foster a sense of self-esteem in pupils, together with an awareness of and respect for the needs and feelings of others.
