Below are the National Curriculum documents for each subject. The National Curriculum is the statutory curriculum produced by the Department for Education. At Tushingham, we aim to bring this to life to inspire our children to love learning. Through our long term overview and clear progression documents - which detail what a child in each year group is expected to learn - we demonstrate high expectations for all.
The intent of our Curriculum:
Spirituality - linked to our Christian Values teachers will nurture the ‘whole child’ through developing their social, moral, cultural and spiritual well-being.
Key Skills – to prepare our children to be lifelong learners we place great emphasis on children being given opportunities to acquire and improve key skills with a focus on speaking and listening, independence, problem solving and reasoning.
Basic Skills – a focus on basic number, reading and writing skills which are at the heart of all we do and embedded throughout a wide range of topics and curriculum areas.
Experiences – the children will participate in a rich variety of first-hand experiences which will bring their learning to life and enhance all that they do.
Locality - the children will develop a sense of belonging and understanding of their historical and geographical location in Cheshire, Britain and the wider world.
Through our broad and balanced curriculum we aim to:
~ enable children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners;
~ foster children’s self-esteem and help them build positive relationships with others;
~ develop children’s self-respect and encourage children to respect the ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others;
~ show respect for all cultures and, in so doing, to promote positive attitudes towards other people;
~ enable children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community;
~ help children grow into reliable, independent and positive citizens in modern Britain;
~ enable all children to meet their full potential and be the best they can be.
