Curriculum

Hillocks Primary and Nursery School

The National Curriculum KS1 and KS2

At Hillocks Primary School we teach through a creative, topic based approach to learning. Planning is based around a key text wherever possible to develop reading skills and children’s enjoyment of reading.

We aim to offer all children a broad and balanced curriculum, which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of the children in our care. We will also prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Long Term Plans identify the areas to be covered and are based on the requirements of the new National Curriculum.

We believe that a Creative Curriculum provides opportunity to:

Inspire and engage pupils by linking curriculum areas to a central theme.

Encourage staff and children to connect the curriculum to their prior experience, and involve them in moving the curriculum forwards.

Promote values by allowing learning to link to personal contexts.

Celebrate raising standards and the achievements of all members of our school community.

Allow children to develop key skills and responsibility for their own learning.
