Prince Rock Primary School
Curriculum Statement September 2014
What is the curriculum like at Prince Rock Primary School?
At Prince Rock Primary School, we aim to tailor education to individual need, interest and aptitude so as to fulfil every child's potential. Every pupil will have access to a rich, broad, balanced, differentiated and, above all, stimulating curriculum.
We deliver a curriculum that leads to high standards to attainment and progress across the school whilst also broadening children’s experiences, exciting them about learning and engendering curiosity and a desire to learn more.
We believe in the importance of teaching children how to be good learners through the 4 Ts: thinking, trying, together and tools. As a result, behaviour for learning (perseverance, concentration, being confident to take a risk without fear of failure etc.) is excellent. We endeavour to enable children to become lifelong learners and face the uncertainties of a global and changing world.
Children’s progress is carefully monitored through the tracking of assessment and, where children are found to need additional support, we have a range of interventions to help them. These include a Reading Recovery Teacher and a ‘Spld’ group to help children with literacy difficulties. Moreover, we put additional activities into the curriculum for children with a particular talent in a subject area to help them to reach excellence.
Sex and relationship education is taught in line with the Sex Education policy agreed by governors.
Religious Education follows the locally agreed syllabus. An extensive range of extra-curricular activities are offered. These include football, Makaton, netball, sewing club, singing, ICT and science. The school is proud of its provision in this area.
Prince Rock Primary School follows the National Curriculum. You can find out more about this by clicking on the links below:
