In September 2014 a new primary curriculum was introduced. Staff at Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School have worked together to produce a curriculum which is dynamic, broad, child centred, creative and exciting. Our curriculum aims to provide children with the knowledge and skills they need to become independent thinkers who will progress through secondary school and beyond, preparing them for life in 21st Century Britain.
At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School we recognise that children need a curriculum that is wider than that identified by the National Curriculum. As a Church of England School, Religious Education sits at the heart of all learning, with worship incorporating the National Society’s Christian Values. We also ensure that learning opportunities are planned which include aspects of globalisation, environmental learning, sustainability, local community responsibility and enterprise and the core British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
We are confident that through the dedication of all our staff we can ensure that all children receive a curriculum that is inspiring and appropriate to them as individuals.
Our teaching and learning includes all statutory areas of the curriculum. Whether teaching in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 teachers strive to plan lessons, activities, visitors and trips which stimulate curiosity, engage interest and make lessons enjoyable. The curriculum for each of the stages provides a balance appropriate to the child’s age.
