 Curriculum Intent

 

Our mission statement, ‘Happy Learners, Aiming High’ reflects the aim of our curriculum that every child should develop their full potential academically, morally, culturally, spiritually, mentally and physically in their learning journey through Caldecott School.

 

Our overarching aim is to provide a range of rich and diverse opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners who have high aspirations and who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and to the wider society.

 

We believe that every child is entitled to experience a broad and balanced curriculum that is cohesive and connected and that builds on children’s learning over time. In our curriculum, there is a high focus on developing children’s learning behaviours so that they are well prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Class information Leaflets

Class information is available to view or download on each class page.  These leaflets will give you useful information about what your child is learning this year and how you can help.  A really significant way that you can support your child's learning is to read with them at  home at least five times a week.  This only needs to be for ten minutes each time but it really makes the difference.  This includes the older children as well. 

 

Curriculum Maps

These maps detail the content of the curriculum our school follows in each academic year for every subject.  

 

Homework

At Caldecott we support the principle of working with parents/carers for the benefit of the children and therefore we have a homework policy that has been agreed by staff, governors and parents/carers.  Our teachers will provide homework in accordance with this policy.

We recognise that children who are supported and encouraged at home produce better results in school so we will ask all parents/carers to read and share books with their children and support them in all other homework tasks.
