Our Curriculum

We have worked hard to devise a curriculum that meets the needs of our pupils and prepares them for life in modern day Britain. The principles that underpin our curriculum are outlined in our Curriculum Intent. Please open the following link to read it – Acresfield Curriculum Intent.

Our intent outlines our determination to ensure all of our children are equipped with the basic skills they need to support them as they transfer to high school and to enable them to succeed in life. It also outlines the value we place on preparing the children for life in modern day Britain, so they understand what it is to be a responsible citizen. This includes an understanding of the issues facing our planet and the individual’s responsibility in taking the steps needed to preserve it. It also focuses on life in multi-cultural Britain and what that means and how everyone can make a positive contribution by showing respect for people from different backgrounds and with different religions and beliefs. It is a carefully thought out curriculum that we believe provides our children with the best possible start to their education.

We have three values and these run through our curriculum: Respect. Resilience. Responsibility.

Each class has an overview of their curriculum on their homepage, as well as a curriculum overview for the current term.

We have developed support booklets for parents in reading, writing and maths. These give an outline of the expectations in the curriculum for each year group and ways that parents can support their child. These can also be found on each class homepage and also on the links to reading, writing and maths.
