Curriculum  

September 2016 saw the introduction of a new question based curriculum here at All Saints that delivers an exciting and creative curriculum that develops knowledge, skills and understanding.  We believe that our question based learning challenges children whilst at the same time developing their independent learning skills as they are encouraged to ask and answer their own questions within each subject.  The link below will take you to our Curriculum Statement where you can learn more about curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact.

Further information relevant to subjects can be found in our termly Parent Information Leaflets located on each class page.

Throughout EYFS and KS1 we use Letters & Sounds to deliver our Phonics curriculum, supported by programs such as Phonics Play.

In order to support the development of reading in school we use books from a variety of different schemes and these are leveled according to the PM Benchmark system.   We also use PM Benchmark to regularly assess the children and ensure that they progress through the levels at an appropriate rate.  PM Benchmark supports the assessment of word recognition, fluency and comprehension.  Some of the reading schemes that we use are: Big Cat Phonics, Songbird Phonics, Floppy's Phonics, Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales, Project X, Bug Club, Songbirds etc.

Assessment

All schools are required to have in place their own assessment system to track the progress of all pupils within the curriculum.  As we are part of the Stone Partnership of Schools, we use a common system to record our assessments.  Target Tracker is used to keep an ongoing record of your child's progress and attainment.

At each Open Evening you will be given information about both your child's progress and attainment as they move through each year group.  At the end of the summer term you will receive a written report that will give information on your child's achievement in relation to the standards, as defined by the DFE, for each year group.

The terminology for attainment that we use is as follows:

Your child is working below the expected standard for their age.  This would mean that your child had not met the expected standard for their age group.

Your child is working at the expected standard for their age.  This would mean that your child had met all of the standards expected for a child of their age.

Your child is working at greater depth within the standard.  This would mean that your child had exceeded the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the concepts taught this year and has been working on extension activities to further develop their knowledge, skills and understanding.
