The school curriculum has been devised by all staff. It reflects all areas of the National Curriculum 2014 but it also includes some extra activities and topics that enhance and widen children’s experiences.
When devising our curriculum, we consulted children, parents and teachers to ascertain what topics had been successful in the different year groups, what events and activities children remembered and had enjoyed.
We are constantly updating the topics, wherever we can, to meet with children’s current interests.
Our vision is to develop an inclusive school, which promotes and achieves excellence, and continues to nurture the values, confidence and skills of pupils, staff and the community, in order to meet the emerging opportunities of the 21st century.
The curriculum is the vehicle by which we present learning to the children, therefore it is vital that the curriculum meets the needs of our children. We want a curriculum that is real, relevant and riveting for our pupils. We focus on giving pupils the skills they need to be lifelong, independent learners through an engaging creative curriculum that values excellence in all subjects.
We take an evolving approach to the way we design and deliver our curriculum to ensure that it is exciting and engages all stakeholders. We want a curriculum that gives access to the right opportunities, experiences and support to ensure that all children achieve. Our curriculum has a collective moral purpose where good quality relationships are developed involving high levels of trust, honesty, mutual respect and British values. It is a partnership that creates space and opportunities to enable innovative working that promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school, and prepares our children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We have a concept based curriculum that places Travis at the centre of learning to create an ‘enabling environment’ where collaboration with Travis Church, local businesses, heritage and cultural organisations, voluntary groups and parents can flourish for the benefit of our children.
In F1 and F2 the children engage in a range of topics, which promote engagement with learning. EYFS follow the Early Years Curriculum, which is delivered through the different topics. These may change each year, depending on the needs and interests of each cohort.
KS1 and KS2
In years 1 to 6, children follow a two year rolling curriculum. This is based on the content of the National Curriculum and designed by staff to meet the needs of children at Travis.
