Curriculum at Shipton Bellinger Primary School
Welcome to the Curriculum page of our school website. This is the place to come to find out more information about the wider curriculum that our learners will explore throughout their time here at Shipton. You will be able to find curriculum information, helpful links, homework support, policies and much much more...
Our curriculum is strategically planned and carefully sequenced to ensure that the knowledge and skills that our learners gain are developed, revisited and extended throughout each year. Learning builds gradually, with built in opportunities to make powerful links across subjects and carefully planned revisiting. At Shipton, we utilise the term "sticky knowledge" - this is the key core information that our learners need to be able to draw in in order to communicate effectively, make learning choices and evaluate across the curriculum. Our knowledge and skills tracker ensures that this sticky knowledge is built in and revisited.
Above all, our wider curriculum is a place where learners can shine. They can take the wheel, investigate independently and drive our learning in the direction they are interested in. It is crucially important that our curriculum is informed by our school context. Throughout each subject, careful choices have been made to ensure that our learners see themselves and our school reflected in our curriculum, as well as exploring a diverse and wonderful world.
