This section of our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6. There are also sections on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development, British Values and International Learning.
The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. This includes an ever growing range of ‘Enjoyment and Enrichment’ opportunities available to our children across all year groups.
Our Curriculum also includes the social aspects imperative for life long learning. We are an aspiring Rights Respecting school which demonstrates the importance of children having high expectations of behaviour and tolerance towards each other as well as the importance of pupil voice.
Cassop Primary School aims to maximise social and academic potential for every pupil. This is reflected in our school’ values and vision statement. Our Curriculum also aims to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible adults, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve all that they can.
In line with statutory requirements, the new Curriculum was launched in September 2014, coinciding with the introduction of the new National Curriculum in England.
British Values – Promoting British Values
Our Mission Statement
Our school reflects British values in all that we do.
We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world.
We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British Society and to the world.
We are currently reviewing our 2 year rolling curriculum plan for Key Stage 1 and 4 year rolling curriculum plan for Key Stage 2.
Here is our Intent, Implementation and Impact of Curriculum for September 2019.
We use the specialist advice, support and teaching from Durham Music Service to deliver Music in our school. The children in Key Stage 2 learn to play a variety of instruments. The Primary Music Progression Map can be viewed below:-
