At Kirk Merrington Primary School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum, in line with the Programmes of Study set out in the National Curriculum, and one which reflects and acknowledges our school’s unique characteristics, ensuring it meets the needs of all of our pupils.
The aim is to provide opportunities for all children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners with the highest aspirations.
To achieve this, our curriculum design in underpinned by three key drivers. These are:
|21st Century Citizen||British Values
Sense of community- Rights and Responsibilities
Understanding of the Wider World
Creative and curious
Able to think critically
Through our curriculum and key drivers, KMPS pupils will understand their role as British Citizens, who make positive contributions to their communities and wider society. Our aspirational expectations combine the acquisition of knowledge and the progressive development of skills in each curriculum area, to create purposeful and engaging learning for every child.
You can view or download information about our curriculum subjects on our website. Each subject within the curriculum has been designed specifically to meet the intent outlined above. Our subject areas are ambitious, coherently planned and correctly sequenced to ensure coherent, broad and balanced coverage of content and progression in skills.
At Kirk Merrington Primary School we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. Our curriculum is planned to ensure that learning is suitably challenging for all so that it constantly moves children forward. It is a curriculum underpinned by high expectations for all, and designed in order to facilitate and promote learning, personal growth and development.
