At Ingleton Primary School, our curriculum is based on the September 2014 National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 & 2 and the Early Years 2017 framework in the Foundation Stage.
Our rigorous, well planned curriculum combined with high quality teaching ensures that children are supported to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have a genuine thirst for learning. Children develop a strong sense of moral purpose in addition to a respect for and understanding of people.
The curriculum is all the planned activities that we as a school organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes, not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others, whilst developing knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning, in order that they achieve their true potential.
Curriculum Intent at Ingleton
At Ingleton Primary School we strive to enjoy our learning and make it as much fun and as meaningful and relevant as possible. We offer children an excellent education in a safe, calm, creative, inclusive and stimulating environment. Every child is valued as an individual; we aim to nurture well rounded, respectful and resilient children who will develop skills for life-long learning. We guide our children on their journey and encourage them to be creative, unique, open-minded, tolerant and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world. We take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain very seriously and ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of our school.
Our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures. We value the spiritual and moral development of each person, as well as their intellectual and physical growth. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community. We are fortunate at Ingleton to have a spacious learning environment both indoors and outdoors. This is respected and used by all in school and we aim, through our curriculum, to teach respect for our world, and how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own.
At Ingleton our values permeate all areas of school life and are reflected by the school’s motto: Tall oaks from little acorns grow.
We place a great deal of emphasis on developing basic skills. We also appreciate the importance of the other subjects that are known as Foundation subjects.
Our children benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum that includes Art, Music, Design Technology, PE, French, RE, PSHE, Computing, History and Geography. We have an exciting and creative theme based curriculum where meaningful links are made between subjects.
Special Needs and Disabilities
We want to provide the very best education for every single child in our care. All their needs vary and each child is unique. At some stage in their primary education some pupils may require some additional support with aspects of their learning or behaviour.
