At Great Sampford we teach a broad and balanced curriculum that is firmly based on the National Curriculum for England (2013) and associated programmes of study, as proposed by the Government of the day. We teach all subjects across the curriculum which are split in to 6 main areas of learning. Personal Wellbeing, English, Mathematics, Creativity, Ingenuity & Curiosity. Please refer to the chart below that illustrates the composition of each area.
Underpinning our work throughout the school is the desire to enable our children to become independent, resilient learners. Through independence, the children are given opportunities and experiences to prepare them for life. Our website should give a flavour of what happens at our school.
Each area of learning has a 'Curriculum Map' which illustrates the 7 year journey of our children from entry in Early Years to when they leave us at the end of Year 6. Each subject has a 'Skills Ladder' which demonstrates the coverage for each year group. In addition to this, the teachers skilfully plan a number of enrichment activities to bring learning alive. There are mission statements for each area of learning.
