At Knighton Mead Primary Academy, we passionately believe that our children have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum. The curriculum of the school underpins all the learning that takes place and an engaging and inspirational curriculum can foster curiosity and a passion for learning so that children may develop into life-long learners.
We cover a wide range of subjects and provide opportunities for academic, creative and sporting excellence. Emphasis is placed on acquiring, developing and applying core skills in reading, writing, communication and mathematics.
The creative curriculum has been organised into integrated topics which meets the objectives of the national Curriculum. Opportunities for speaking and listening are utilised and pupils are skilled in work that requires collaboration. When possible, the use of I.C.T. is encouraged in all areas of the National Curriculum as it can enhance the learning experience of children. Each class teacher is responsible for the delivery of the National Curriculum (see link below) and where possible having a ‘topic based’ approach.
Alongside the creative curriculum we develop skills of pupils which will promote life-long learning through our Route to Resilience project. We refer to these skills as their character muscles. The character muscles are up in all classrooms and are used by all staff all the time.
