At Ingleton Primary School, our curriculum is based on the September 2014 National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 & 2 and the Early Years 20201 Framework in the Foundation Stage.
Our rigorous, well planned curriculum combined with high quality teaching ensures that children are supported to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have a genuine thirst for learning. Children develop a strong sense of moral purpose in addition to a respect for and understanding of people.
The curriculum is all the planned activities that we as a school organise 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 extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others, whilst developing knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning, in order that they achieve their true potential.
Curriculum Intent at Ingleton Primary during national school closure – January 2021
During this period of national school closures, we aim to deliver a similar curriculum via remote learning. We are using three digital platforms for children to access home learning: Tapestry for EYFS; Purple Mash for Kingsdale and Barbondale classes; Google Classroom for Wensleydale, Swaledale and Wharfedale classes.
Daily lessons for each year group are pre-recorded videos, either by the class teacher or an online resource. Children are invited to at least two Google Meets per week. Pupils receive daily feedback on their work via written comments or voice notes. In key stage two Google Chat is used for regular communication. Regular communication with parents is a priority. They receive emails and phone calls.
We place a great deal of emphasis on developing basic skills. We also appreciate the importance of the other subjects that are known as Foundation subjects.
Our children benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum that includes Art, Music, Design Technology, PE, French, RE, PSHE, Computing, History and Geography. We have an exciting and creative theme based curriculum where meaningful links are made between subjects.
Special Needs and Disabilities
We want to provide the very best education for every single child in our care. All their needs vary and each child is unique. At some stage in their primary education some pupils may require some additional support with aspects of their learning or behaviour.
