Design and intent:
Our curriculum is designed to equip our children for life covering the following three areas:
At Kingswood we believe that it is important to make the curriculum as stimulating and interesting as possible. This year we have moved to a more thematic curriculum. We ensure that the current National Curriculum is covered, but we also carefully consider the skills that we are intending the children to develop as well as the content. We want our children to become active and avid learners, with the skills to succeed in whichever educational direction they choose, throughout their lives.
We place great value on actual experiences. Wherever possible we incorporate visits to act as a catalyst to learning. We also try to identify visitors to come into school and enrich the children’s work. The Kingswood School Association supports this work by providing funds to subsidise the costs of visits and visitors, so that we are able to be creative and adventurous. We ask all parents to support the KSA in whatever way you can, so that we are able to continue to enjoy this fantastic support.
Kingswood Primary School is a maintained community school, which means we work in partnership with Gloucestershire County Council. As a maintained school, we are required to teach the National Curriculum as set out by the Department for Education. Details of this curriculum can be viewed via the following link:
The national Curriculum for the primary years is divided into three stages:
Foundation Stage pupils 4 – 5 years old
Key Stage 1 pupils 5 – 7 years old
Key Stage 2 pupils 7 – 11 years old
