Our Curriculum Approach

Long term plans - our enquiry led curriculum consists of a series of overarching questions for each topic/theme, which form the intent of their learning.

Medium term plans - The children will then explore each topic/theme through a series of carefully sequenced questions (the implementation) leading them to a structured end point.

Curriculum Intent

Trevisker School uses the National Curriculum as a basis to plan units of work with a cross-curricular, thematic approach which is meaningful and engaging for the children.

The school curriculum has two elements; to provide opportunities for all pupils to achieve; and to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

At Trevisker there is an emphasis on experiential learning, including the opportunities for outdoor activities, visits, visitors and cross-curricular links, leading to an immersive approach where the children take ownership and develop a love of learning.

The impact of our curriculum is evident in the quality of the pupils books and their engagement in their learning.  We track pupils carefully to ensure that what they are learning is understood, remembered and can be transferred to other areas of learning and experiences.

‘Our topics make learning interesting.  Learning like this helps you remember things better.’  Jacob, Year 6

‘I like our classroom, because the walls are interesting, useful and fun.  I also like how we can assess how we feel all the time.’  Evie, Year 6

At Trevisker School your child will learn through a carefully planned play based curriculum, which also maximises opportunities to develop their own lines of enquiry.  You will share your child’s learning journey through photos on Tapestry, an online app.

Phonics and reading are taught through our structured Read, Write, Inc programme.  This is a recognised scheme that ensures all children become confident, independent and enthusiastic readers.

We adopt a ‘free flow’ approach which allows children to access both inside and outside throughout the day.  We are fortunate to have a great outdoor learning environment.
