Curriculum Intent

 

A community growing learning and achieving together

Community - Aiming High - Learning to Learn - Well Being

Our Vision 

Merstham Primary School is a school that lies at the heart of its local community. Merstham Primary School aims to meet the needs of the community by providing opportunities - academic, social and sporting. We want the children to Aim High, to learn without limits and not impose limits upon what they can achieve at school or in life. The school engenders a love of learning through its engaging, creative curriculum and welcoming approach. The school shares its belief that we are all Life Long Learners knowing that we are all constantly learning to learn. We put the needs of the children first, encouraging them to respect themselves and others. The children at Merstham are confident, empathetic and work with each other to support learning. The new curriculum introduced at Merstham is ensuring that children are making better progress across Key Stages 1 and 2.

Curriculum Rationale

At Merstham children learn through carefully considered, well sequenced and planned topics that engage and interest the children. The diverse curriculum provides children with the opportunities to learn the skills that they need for the next stages in their education and for later life. The curriculum and related opportunities enable children to develop a cultural capital that enables them to be 21st Century citizens who will/can contribute to a modern multicultural society. The curriculum encourages children and educators to forge links across subjects meeting the needs of the community and the needs of the pupils.

Curriculum Intent

Our School Curriculum at Merstham Primary School has been designed to prepare the children with the skills and knowledge that prepares them for the next stage in their education.

We aim to take into account children’s prior knowledge and learning, to provide the children with first hand learning experiences, to help the children become more resilient, develop their interpersonal skills and to become creative critical thinkers.

Teaching and learning are underpinned by the teaching of basic skills. Our assemblies focus on developing the children’s knowledge and understanding of the school ethos and of British Values. We provide the children with enrichment opportunities to engage the children and we aim to develop a thirst for knowledge and a lifelong love of learning by providing a happy safe environment that encourages inquisitiveness.

We treat every child as a unique individual, and this sometimes requires that we adapt the rigorous an structured curriculum to meet their needs.

The children leave Merstham Primary ready for the next stage in their education having been a part of community that has helped them become confident learners, who can contribute to their community and be successful as they move forward through life.

The school reviews the curriculum on an ongoing basis. In May 2022 the themes were updated. Ongoing subject reviews by leaders are strengthening the clarity of what we teach, simplifying the planning and learning process and further improving links to prior learning to improve knowledge retention and deepen the learning experience for the children.
