Our most recent Ofsted inspection (March 2017) commented that 'Curriculum provision is well established and stimulating. Learning activities are often inspiring and well planned. Pupils speak enthusiastically and knowledgeably about subjects such as science, geography, history and art, and how they appreciate the many trips and outdoor experiences they receive that bring their learning to life and make it memorable.'
At Barons Court Primary School and Nursery, our school curriculum comprises all the learning and enrichment experiences that we provide in order to develop the whole child. It is underpinned by the National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 and the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
At Barons Court Primary we teach in Phases.
Phase 1 – Nursery
Phase 2 – Reception and Year 1
Phase 3 – Year 2 and 3
Phase 4 – Year 4, 5 and 6
Our school day for pupils in Phase 2- Phase 4 is 8.45am-3.15pm.
Our Curriculum Intent
Our school is situated in a community with links across a wide range of generations. Our families are fully involved in our school and community involvement is integral to our curriculum. We invite families and visitors to facilitate learning new skills and sharing experiences such as assemblies and curriculum workshops. We have a flexible approach to learning and adapt to the needs and aspirations of our children and families. Ultimately our curriculum is driven by community so that all members of our school have a strong sense of belonging to a tightly knit community and is intended to:
• Develop our head and body: What we learn.
• Develop our character: Who we are.
• Develop our actions and attitudes: How we live and learn.
• Develop our moral compass: Where we fit in the world.
Learning at Barons Court is the process of developing essential knowledge to then move to deeper understanding so that learners can appropriately transfer the skills of learning to new tasks and situations.
We have designed our curriculum to develop knowledge, understanding and skills for all children across a variety of exciting learning experiences and all curriculum subjects. Please click on our Curriculum Intent Statements below to see our aims for all National Curriculum subjects which are enjoyed by the children at our school.
As a school we are also committed to ensuring a breadth of learning experiences for all of our children to enjoy throughout their time with us. Children are encouraged to express themselves, fully understand the importance of their role within the wider community and have fun!
