Muschamp Primary School provides a stimulating, balanced and broad based education, which, within the framework of the National Curriculum 2014, affords every child the opportunity to excel wherever their strengths may be.
We follow the National Curriculum Programmes of Study for the statutory subjects and follow the National Curriculum guidance to teach the non-statutory subjects. We have developed our creative and thematic approach to learning; mapping key skills to the Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations.
Our curriculum provides lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum as well as a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning. Children are assessed each half term so their progress can be tracked and individual learning needs can be addressed.
English and Mathematics are well established as core features of the school day, with children set by ability for English and Mathematics from Year 2. The overarching aim for English is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written language, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment. In Mathematics we aim to develop fluency in number skills, deep understanding and give children the opportunity to see how different mathematical ideas are interrelated in challenging, practical and exciting learning contexts.
