Inspiring a Love for Lifelong Learning


Children's Area

Curriculum

'Since the last inspection, you have worked tirelessly to secure good progress across the curriculum, particularly in reading and writing.' Ofsted 2018

'Subjects are planned well to ensure that pupils experience a broad, balanced and stimulating education.' Ofsted  2014

At Ashford Park Primary School we endeavour to provide learning opportunities that are meaningful, rewarding, relevant and fun for our children. We strive to offer an excellent educational experience for your child, creating a calm, inclusive, safe, yet stimulating environment. For every child, we aim to provide a love for lifelong learning, through a curriculum that supports each individual to achieve their potential and produce success, with a desire for our children to leave APPS with the knowledge, values and skills to equip them for secondary school and beyond.

Our school’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced to enable our children to confidently access the subject content, and make progress through the curriculum. Each subject area within the curriculum demonstrates clear progression. Our curriculum is embedded, enabling the secure acquisition of knowledge and skills.

PLEASE click here to also enjoy the examples of our curriculum enrichment as described in the 'Children's Area, All About Us and Our Experiences at APPS!'

The 2014 national curriculum framework states that 'the national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said.' (Department for Education, 2014).

Amanda Spielman (HMCI), when writing about the curriculum in 2018, stated that 'the vast, accumulated wealth of human knowledge, and what we choose to pass on to the next generation through teaching in our schools (the curriculum), must be at the heart of education'.
