Curriculum

Our Intent

At Powerstock we provide an exciting set of learning experiences which gives all our children the essential knowledge and the skills for learning and ultimately working in our constantly changing 21st century.  The curriculum is delivered in an environment of whole school active wellbeing, where healthy choices are at the heart of our “ready for learning” culture.

The core subjects of Mathematics and English are taught in the mornings, but are creatively linked to all the other subjects we teach through our termly topics.  Our teaching staff is committed, knowledgeable and committed to enabling the best outcomes for each child.

Please see Intent, Implementation and impact statements for each subject below:

Implementation:

Please see individual statements for this but in general, we are a very small school but we are lucky to have Reception, KS1 and KS2 spread over three small classes.  We have a wonderful teaching teach of dedicated, experienced teachers who all have their areas of expertise.  We ensure that each subject receives equal attention and focus and plan together as a team to ensure that children experience a wide and interesting curriculum across the school.

Impact:

Our children make good progress from their individual starting points.  This may be in line with expected age-related expectations laid down by the DfE or with our own school tracking system.  This means that through our individualised learning approach, children learn to read, write and get started with maths to the best of their ability.  This year 100% of our Reception children will achieve their Early Learning Goals!  In maths, most children across the school are in line or exceeding national progress data.  Our reading and writing are also improving as a result of focus through our school development plan and we are pleased to see an increase in progress and attainment in each class.

Our tracking system shows how children make progress developmentally and achieve many aims that aren’t recognised by government data but are so important towards preparation for the next steps!  These measures include resilience, independence, responsibility and really capture the attributes needed to become well rounded and robust to face the challenges of the 21st century!

We have three mixed year group classes in our small school:

Burton class (Rec, Y1 and Y2) with Mrs Oxenbury and Mrs Greenham
Cogden class (Y3 and Y4) with Mrs Seal and Mrs Greenham
Seatown class (Y5 and Y6) with Mrs Cleden
