Ashbury Meadow Primary School Curriculum
At Ashbury Meadow we have developed five curriculum teams to enhance learning throughout the school, through a creative approach which enhances the cultural capital of all pupils which values and links pupils' experiences, identities and what matters to them. The teams are: Problem Solving (encompassing maths, science, design & technology and computing), Global (encompassing history and geography), Communication (encompassing PE and Spanish), Expressive Arts (encompassing art & design and music) and Personal Development (encompassing religious education and worldviews, and PSHE). Each team has a key person responsible and meets half termly to discuss how to promote, plan and drive forward key areas of learning. Each team holds an annual whole school curriculum team day and works alongside the other teams to promote cross-curricular links and champion whole school initiatives.
Personal, social and health education (PHSE), spiritual, moral, social and cultural education (SMSC) and special educational needs (SEND) are threaded through each curriculum team’s work. As is Careers, UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award, Learning Outside of the Classroom and Nurture School UK work.
At Ashbury Meadow Primary School, we respect and celebrate the diversity of our pupil population and strive to ensure that children know where they have come from and how their lives have been shaped by other countries and cultures as we prepare them for life in modern Britain. We value our local community as a resource and ensure it is used to support learning where appropriate.
Through our team-based curriculum groups we aim to promote:
- Learning outside the classroom
- The development of rights respecting citizens
- Pupil’s understanding of British values
- Links with schools from around the world and within our region
- The use of subject specific vocabulary
- The development of scientific and cultural capital and an understanding of future careers to aspire to.
