 Curriculum Overview 

The curriculum at Knayton is relevant and inspiring!  We have given careful consideration to our children; their experiences and needs and developed a bespoke curriculum model that caters for them specifically. 

 

Our curriculum intent is to:

  • Ensure that all children feel safe, happy and valued as individuals and embed values of friendship, kindness and respect. 
  • Have the highest expectations for what all children can achieve regardless of background or starting points
  • Be child-led, engaging and innovative through a creative and ambitious approach
  • For children to confidently challenge and confront injustice and inequality as articulate advocates of change, celebrating and respecting diversity
  • Immerse our children in outdoor learning and use forest schools principles
  • Ensure children receive valuable support at home through excellent parent partnerships
  • Have an emphasis on knowledge and vocabulary acquisition and teaching is carefully structured to enable pupils to remember what they have been taught
  • Ensure community links are central to ensuring our children have a broad understanding of the local world around them
  • Have opportunities to explore and appreciate different cultures and beliefs through global learning experiences

 

Our Golden Threads of Nurture and Relationships, Highest Expectations and Creative and Innovative Sequential Approaches are embedded throughout our Curriculum.

 

Our curriculum is implemented through Learning Missions. These are whole school, cross curricular themes that aim to inspire and excite children about new learning.

Through each Learning Mission, the children go on a learning journey from launch to landing. Children use knowledge organisers to support their learning so they remember long term the content they have been taught.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elements of a learning mission include:

 

 

We value each child’s contribution and individuality. Our children's individual Learning Mission books are full of published work which they are proud to share with others. We also publish our work in whole school 'subject books' so we can see our learning journey across school.

 

We share our learning on our class blogs on our class pages and social media https://www.facebook.com/Knayton-CofE-Academy

 

We have created our bespoke 'Curriculum Progression Document' to allow learning objectives to progress across school.

The impact of our curriculum approach is that it truly inspires learners, igniting a learning passion and developing ‘learning for life’. English and Maths are taught as discrete sessions in the morning, but wherever

possible they will link to the current Learning Mission. Weekly Science sessions link to our Learning Missions wherever possible. Teachers ensure a clear progression for all subjects and have high expectations for children’s

achievements in every subject. Knowledge organisers are used for science and foundation subjects to ensure children remember what is taught long term.
