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:
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.
Our 'Opportunities Pledge' ensures opportunities are planned sequentially and link to the curriculum:
Our Learning Missions for 2021/2022 are below. Details of learning objectives for each subject are on our subject pages.
