Our Curriculum

16 Dec 2020

Our vision for the Federation of Kirkby Malzeard and St Nicholas C of E Schools.
We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ John 10:10 and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’ Philippians 2:15; to have the courage to act with kindness, patience, love and peace in all the communities they serve in.
Curriculum Intent
Our curriculum is based on a consideration of the contextual needs of our cohorts and families, our local context and government requirements in addition to curriculum research; this has helped shape our vision and intent.
To achieve our vison, where our children can Live life in all its fullness’ John 10:10 and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’ Philippians 2:15, we believe that our children need to be the following:
  • Life-long readers
  • Confident communicators
  • Spiritually, mentally and physically healthy
  • Creative
  • Curious
  • Able to understand and embrace the wider world
Therefore these are the golden threads that run through our curriculum and on which our curriculum is planned around each half term.

Our curriculum meets and extends beyond the formal requirements of the national curriculum, offering children exposure to engaging, rich and varied opportunities that will enable them to develop the essential knowledge, skills, understanding and cultural capital; our intent is to build the foundations for later life though a broad and balanced, well sequenced, cohesive and inclusive curriculum.
All stakeholders were involved in designing our vision.

Curriculum Intent Statement

Subject and senior leaders have worked together to devise long term and medium term curriculum plans that are:
  • Aspirational - and meet the NC requirements
  • Cohesive – are carefully planned and sequenced so they build upon skills and knowledge children need to be successful in their learning
  • Bespoke – are directly aligned to our golden threads and exploit opportunities to develop these
  • Inclusive – all learners needs are met and cultural capital is considered so we remove barriers to learning.
