Overview

At Anna Seward Primary School, we work collaboratively with the community to engage and inspire learners. Our knowledge-engaged curriculum enables children to leave as inquisitive, aspirational learners who show kindness and gratitude and are knowledgeable about the world. They foster resilience, challenge themselves and others, and believe anything and everything is possible. 

Addressing Social Disadvantage 

Experiences underpin our curriculum. We work collaboratively to provide experiences which challenge and broaden children’s lives and attitudes to the world. 

ALL children have access to quality first teaching which balances knowledge and skill equally. Through the curriculum, children are encouraged to become active and responsible citizens within their community. 

Cognitive Science  

The long and medium term plans have been coherently sequenced to ensure that the principles of how children learn are embedded and exploited through teaching opportunities. 

Resources have been created to ensure they support this cognitive approach (see 5 pillars below) 

Working Collaboratively 

Through “quality circles” of professionals, who are experts in their fields, medium and long term plans have been created to support the implementation of the curriculum. 

Subject leadership teams at School level collaborate to ensure the local intent at Anna Seward is realised and supports the vision of the school. 

Applying Knowledge 

Prior learning is clearly identified and developed through progressive planning which ensures and promotes deep understanding. This can be seen across all curriculum areas, within year groups and phases. 

Opportunities for application of knowledge through retrieval is regular to build strong schema. 

On the curriculum tabs you will find curriculum overviews for each year group, as well as some information about the Read, Write, Inc Phonics Programme & Power Maths that we adopt at Anna Seward.
