Curriculum Vision

We want all of our children to be thoughtful, independent, resilient citizens giving them the knowledge and skills needed for a successful future in our diverse world.

At Timberley, we aim for our curriculum to be broad and balanced and to give pupils opportunities to achieve our curriculum vision. We incorporate the Statutory Framework for the Early Year Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum, in well-resourced and exciting surroundings.  If you would like any more information about our curriculum please contact your child's class teacher. 

 

Our curriculum promotes a positive, challenging, and enjoyable learning experience which meets all our children’s needs and abilities. To enable all our children to enjoy, achieve and develop creative approaches to thinking and learning, the curriculum is delivered through topics and experiential learning opportunities.

 

We strongly believe that children need to develop social and emotional skills if they are to participate effectively in our school and society. We use outdoor learning, our Timberley Farm, Forest School and an exciting Personal, Social and Health Education programme in our curriculum.

 

We use Read, Write Inc. Phonics and Literacy and Language schemes to deliver our literacy curriculum. We use The White Rose scheme to deliver our maths curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum to deliver half-termly/termly topics that cover a range of other subject areas in a cross-curricular approach, with global links in our diverse world. At times, we deliver our own non-IPC topics to ensure pupils can focus on learning specifically linked to the UK or to local contexts. Our curriculum builds upon knowledge and skills pupils have learnt in previous years.

 

Our class teachers are responsible for teaching the entire curriculum with specialist provision for Music. We also offer a wide range of extracurricular activities which support and motivate children to achieve their full potential in areas such as sport, the arts, computing and outdoor learning. 

 

At Timberley Academy all class teachers are responsible for providing a curriculum that is suitable for all pupils in the class, including those with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) with support from the SENCo and SEND team. We have high expectations for all pupils and are committed to ensuring our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. Our inclusion statement emphasises the importance of providing an inclusive learning environment for all pupils including those with SEND. Additional information on this can be found in our Special Education Needs Information Report and Equalities Policy.

Key Concept Grids

Our Key concept grids define the knowledge and skills that pupils need to learn each year. They are planned so that pupils build on what has been taught before and meet the expected learning goals as outlined by The National Curriculum. Local links are added to each subject area, with outdoor learning a vital part of learning – addressing typical gaps in knowledge by providing experiences to our pupils.  We pride ourselves on offering a broad and balanced curriculum.

Knowledge Organisers

Our Knowledge Organisers provide staff, pupils and parents with the key concepts they need to learn for each IPC unit. They are used to create learning displays, and links to essential knowledge about the best of what has been thought, said and done – for example key famous artists, scientific ideas or fiction texts. They support learning and home and the completion of homework.
