Our Curriculum

Our Outstanding Curriculum

At Roberttown School we pride ourselves on our strong community spirit and endeavour to create an inclusive Church school environment where everyone is given the opportunity to succeed and achieve their potential.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced, using the 2014 National Curriculum as a basis for our projects which deliver engaging and exciting activities. The curriculum overviews for each year group are available below. If you require any further information please see your child's classteacher.  

KS1 Reading and Phonics Scheme

We use Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics to deliver our phonic teaching.  We use a wide range of books to teach and develop reading.

Our Outstanding teaching and learning is enriched with a broad & balanced progressive curriculum. Where possible, lessons are taught in a cross curricular, skill based format. The curriculum is delivered through exciting projects such as ‘Bright Sparks’ and ‘Rockin’ Romans’. Our staff encourage pupil voice to develop personalisation within these subjects. Children in Foundation stage are nurtured through their development in a ‘learning by play’ approach. Transition is a key part to their year in reception, being able to initially access a similar provision to that at playgroup/pre-schools and then working towards a more formal approach ready for curriculum teaching in Key Stage 1.

On Wednesday afternoons Key Stage 1 access structured play whereas Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to choose different activities through Enrichment. Some of these activities are sports led whilst others develop more creative, life skills such as cooking and project planning/enterprise.

Children in all year groups access ‘Outdoor Learning’. We have extensive grass and wooded areas within our grounds which allow children to extend their class based learning in a different environment. Outdoor Learning develops many personal and social skills such as exploration and teamwork.

We aim to deliver 2 hours of PE each week and see these sessions as a fundamental part of our children’s learning. Whilst Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 develop and extend fine/gross motor skills through dance and gymnastic based lessons, Key Stage 2 use their sessions to apply these skills to games and adventure based activities.

Each class in Key Stage 1 & 2 access our computing suite 3 times a week. These lessons teach specific computing skills as well as developing new ‘Coding' techniques. Additional to this, all classes are able to use class sets of laptops to support their class based work. All year groups, including Reception, also have class desktop computers.

We actively promote fundamental British values and endeavour to develop pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC development). Our school code is CARE, which stands for Consideration, Affection, Respect for Everyone and Everything.
