OUR KNOWLEDGE CURRICULUM
At Elm C of E we have created a bespoke carefully sequenced, knowledge-rich curriculum which aims to inspire pupils and promote excellent outcomes for all.
We have ensured the curriculum content has been carefully chosen using our own in-house subject expertise as well as being supported by subject experts such as the Primary Knowledge Curriculum and taking influence from experts leading on Curriculum development such as Christine Counsell, Alex Bedford and Mary Myatt.
Our curriculum is organised in a coherent way, ensuring children can build on their knowledge from year to year and revisit and extend key content. In this way, the knowledge in the curriculum is cumulative, constructing firm foundations from which children can progress and develop deeper conceptual understanding and subject-specific skills over time.
Curriculum coherence ensures that teaching is not just sequenced into topics that have horizontal threads running through for each year group, but there are clear substantive echoes across subjects and across year groups as well as vertical threads of knowledge in each subject enabling children to develop knowledge over time, as well as a love of subjects.
Subject content is crucial to this approach- the rich content of the curriculum inspires children and plants the seeds for a lifetime of learning.
