Curriculum Statement

Kingfield Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the primary National Curriculum.

Our schemes of work reflect the content and challenge of the curriculum. Teachers have received training in key areas of curriculum change and are ready to provide outstanding curriculum provision.

The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners. Our curriculum will be exciting and will inspire children to nurture a passion for learning.

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education.

Developing the holistic child is of upmost importance and, with this in mind, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which encompasses academic subjects, sport, music and SMSC education. 

We are particularly proud of the respect and care that our children show for one another, the environment and the community around us.

Assessment without levels

As part of reforms to the National Curriculum, the system of ‘levels’ used to report children’s attainment was removed from most year groups in September 2014 and Years 2 and 6 in September 2015.

The government believes by removing levels it will allow teachers greater flexibility in the way that they plan and assess pupils’ learning.

The programmes of study within the new National Curriculum (NC) set out expectations at the end of each key stage, and all maintained schools will be free to develop a curriculum relevant to their pupils that teaches this content.

The curriculum must include an assessment system which enables schools to check what pupils have learned and whether they are on track to meet expectations at the end of the key stage, and to report regularly to parents.

We will be achieving this through a system of teachers regularly assessing children’s understanding during lessons and using this, and evidence from summative assessments, to track progress towards year group objectives. Parents will be regularly updated through our parent teacher meetings every term, as well as the end of year report on children’s achievement.
