At Botley School we foster engagement with learning and make the curriculum as rich and broad as possible. To this end, we have planned a curriculum which will engender curiosity, creativity and challenge. All the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and the Agreed syllabus for Religious Education are met through our planning. The curriculum is organised in Key Stages. Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7 in Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11 in Years 3-6). The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is followed by children in the Nursery and Reception classes. The organisation of curriculum content in each term has been chosen to provide cross curricular links which will enable pupils to embed knowledge. A greater depth of knowledge is further enhanced with the use of 'Curriculum Concept' questions which are included alongside the curriculum.
Learning behaviours and resilience are promoted through the PSHE curriculum and Growth Mindset skills that will help prepare our pupils for their next steps in learning and for life in the modern world.
The curriculum is delivered using a variety of teaching methods, sometimes whole class, sometimes group and sometimes individual.
The school has internal procedures for monitoring the curriculum. These involve the Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and Curriculum Action Teams made up of teachers in school. Key subjects also have a named teacher as the subject lead.
If you wish to see our curriculum in more detail, please use the page links below. If you have any further questions regarding our curriculum, please speak to your class teacher in the first instance, or send an email via the school office for the attention of the Curriculum Lead.
Provision for remote learning can be found within the year group information on the class pages.
