Our ‘Big Bus Curriculum’ meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and has been designed to give all our pupils the knowledge and learning opportunities they need to succeed in the future. Our ‘Big Bus Curriculum’ is aspirational for all and is a seamless learning journey from Foundation Stage to the end of Key Stage Two, providing learning opportunities designed to engage them and to promote meaningful learning. There is clear progression and sequencing in all subjects and this is made explicit to our pupils so that they understand that their current learning builds on prior learning. The design of our curriculum creates opportunities to ensure knowledge is revisited, and committed to long term memory.
We have enjoyed the "journey" of designing and implementing our 'Big Bus Curriculum'. Sequencing for each subject has been addresses across the curriculum and we understand the importance of sequencing to secure effective learning. Our curriculum is designed to help pupils remember the content they have been taught and to be able to make sense of new learning because of this. We monitor children's achievements and work to ensure that their learning over time shows they are acquiring and applying subject knowledge effectively. We aim to create an environment that enables children to focus on learning. We have designed a bespoke curriculum to overcome barriers to learning. This is why spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC) as well as the British Values are the drivers in our curriculum design. These are embedded into the curriculum and are consistently revisited through our Angram Bank Values.
