(Battling Brook Curriculum)
At Battling Brook, we believe all children have the right to a rich, broad, balanced and relevant education, which provides continuity and progression. It also takes pupils’ individual differences into account. Work is designed to deliver the requirements of the National Curriculum whilst meeting the needs of our specific pupils.
We take a creative, thematic approach to our curriculum and where natural links between subjects occur, lessons are taught with the specific topic or theme as a stimulus. Some, skills however, are taught more discretely.
Our Curriculum is personal to our pupils as it is underpinned by our whole school aims: Equality, Active Learning, Compassion and Honour (EACH). We ensure a balanced curriculum, through teaching both the knowledge and the skills to enable pupils to progress in each subject area.
Each year group has a set of Knowledge Essentials for each subject. This is key knowledge that all children should know by the end of the year and is informally tested; this knowledge is regularly recapped to make sure that the information is retained.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure progression through skills. Each year group has their own set of skills for each subject, which are built on each year.
Each year group has its own overview to show what is being taught. To see information for your child’s year, click on the relevant year group within the Classes & Year Groups tab.
As a school we follow the White Rose Objectives for our maths planning. These objectives give guidance to ensure coverage of all key areas of the 2014 National Curriculum; however, like with any published guidance staff make adaptations where necessary for their individual classes to ensure accurate acquisition of skills and knowledge. The links below provide the information relating to specific year groups and demonstrate subject progression across school years.
We follow the new revised ‘Leicestershire Agreed Syllabus 2021-2026’ for the teaching of Religious Education. The coverage for this is detailed below:
