Curriculum

At Kingswood we believe that it is important to make the curriculum as stimulating and interesting as possible. We ensure that the knowledge required by the National Curriculum is central to our teaching and learning, and 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 knowledge, skills and attitudes to succeed in whichever educational direction they choose, throughout their lives.

 

  • KNOWLEDGE - learning the key information and facts needed to access the whole curriculum, creating building blocks of understanding which they can use as a foundation in their time at secondary school and beyond

 

  • SKILLS - to apply the knowledge learned in a range of contexts, as well as learning skills specific to different subject areas or of a practical nature

 

  • PERSONAL ATTITUDES AND ATTRIBUTES - being able to use the knowledge and skills learned when working individually and with others. These attitudes are characterised by our "Seven Cs" of: commitment, curiosity, confidence, citizenship, collaboration, creativity and challenge. 

 

Key Concepts

Our key concepts are the threads that run throughout our curriculum and enable us to make connections across the different subject areas. These concepts will enable our children to make sense of the world around them and to prepare for their future lives in our modern world.

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:
