To provide an ‘Engaging, Educational Experience for all.’
At Pollington-Balne, our curriculum is meticulously designed to provide a rich, exciting and challenging ‘broad and balanced’ thematic approach to teaching and learning that meets the needs of all pupils following the 2014 National Curriculum. It encourages a love of learning and prepares the pupils for life as successful, highly motivated and socially responsible citizens. As a Church of England school, the Christian ethos and values permeates much of our work.
Our INTENT is that:
The Pollington Curriculum is established to deliver our intent. Our curriculum is delivered using a variety of approaches and resources depending on the nature of the subject being taught and the needs of the children ( see appendix – Curriculum Approaches) Core subjects are taught discreetly and learning is applied through wider curriculum subjects. Some of the imaginative learning projects are delivered using the Cornerstones scheme of work but this is also enhanced by additional whole school themed weeks and days as well as some discreet teaching particularly in RE, science (if it does not link to the topic), music, computing, PE and languages. All classes in Key Stage 2 are taught a second language: French. As well as being taught the skills of learning a new language, the children also learn about the culture of another country.
