School Curriculum - Our Curriculum Vision

To ensure all of our pupils are equipped for successful lifelong learning and achievement.

Teaching enables outstanding progress by ensuring that tasks are differentiated, with challenge in place for More Able, so that pupils are challenged and respond positively, building their curiosity, confidence, resilience and perseverance. Active learning is linked to high outcomes with attainment for GDS above national average across the Unity. Achievement is strong for all groups of pupils across a curriculum which is robust and inspiring for core subjects whilst immersive, engaging and innovative for all foundation subjects, supported with celebration of the successes of each individual pupil.

Our Curriculum Content

Each class page contains downloadable newsletters which will outline what is being delivered for each subject area. We use the White Rose Maths Scheme and Hamilton Trust and Jane Considine for Reading and Writing development. If you have any questions about the curriculum for your child's class, please speak to your child's Class Teacher in the first instance. Please also see each class page for the long-term plan for the curriculum and documents detailing the areas of each subject being covered. You can also download our school vision to see how the curriculum is central to all we do.

The Role of the Curriculum

Our curriculum promotes respect, tolerance and diversity. We are committed to ensuring that our pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to prepare them for life in modern Britain.

Children are encouraged to share their views and recognise that they are entitled to have their own different beliefs which should not be used to influence others. Our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), Citizenship and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) provision is embedded across the curriculum, and underpins the ethos of our schools. Our collective worship programme is planned to support these values.

Teaching the school's core values alongside the fundamental British values supports quality teaching and learning, whilst making a positive contribution to the development of a fair, just and civil society. Children are regularly taught about how to stay safe when using the Internet and are encouraged to recognise that people are not always who they say they are online. They are taught to seek adult help if they are upset or concerned about anything they read or see on the Internet.

Phonics Scheme

At Nassington School we introduce children to phonics and since Summer 2022, we have been following the FFT Success For All phonics scheme.

Covid Catch-Up Grant

The school has received money from the DfE to support pupils requiring additional support due to the pandemic and closure of schools. We are maintaining assessment using the data before school closed as a benchmark and running regular tests and hot and cold tasks to ensure pupils are supported and closely monitored. We have invested the money in webcams to ensure that the best possible face-to-face learning can take place for pupils working from home, have run a well-being and self-esteem course offered by NMPAT and have tutoring in place to support pupils on a short-term basis to fill in any gaps caused by the absence. Our quality first teaching also revisits areas missed during the lockdown and teaching assistant interventions are also in place to support the children in school. The schemes of work we use also include recapping of skills and work from the previous year to ensure that all pupils are secure in their prior learning before embarking on the work for the coming year.

Assessing Impact

Through our data drops, which take place five times a year, we will review the progress of each child and will ensure that any pupil who is behind receives interventions from our teaching staff and teaching assistants. This will allow us to identify pupil needs, put interventions in place and assess how well they have caught up. We also have access to online tutoring to ensure that any pupil who is behind can have additional support from a trained tutor. You can see the impact on our 'Pupil Premium Strategy document' on the sidebar.

How will we know if we have been successful?

Each pupil is expected to make at least six steps progress per year and, in the case of pupils who are behind due to the lockdown, they should be able to make accelerated progress with the steps in place. Meetings between the Executive Headteacher and the teaching staff will review this regularly, alongside governor visits and scrutiny at the Unity Standards' Committee meetings.
