Areas of study
As a school we have thought carefully about our curriculum to ensure that links are made so that children can apply and further their knowledge. Our areas of study can be found below.
The National Curriculum
In September 2014, the Government introduced a new National Curriculum, with a great deal of fresh content and ambitious expectations of learning. It is designed to provide children with the essential knowledge, skills and understanding that they require to be successful citizens of Great Britain.
In addition, the National Curriculum provides statutory programmes of study for each subject, stating which content which should be taught to pupils in each stage of learning.
With the introduction of the new curriculum the manner in which schools assess learning has also changed dramatically. Levels have been removed and will not be replaced on a National basis.
Although the content of the curriculum has been stipulated by the Government and Statutory Assessments will continue to be prescribed, schools are free to assess the skills acquired in each subject, at each stage of learning, in whatever manner they deem appropriate.
At Swinefleet, we want to ensure that the children leave us equipped with the essential knowledge, skills and understanding required for their next stage of learning when they leave our school. Please see our section on Assessment for further details.
