Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum

The Department for Education has defined a new National Curriculum to be taught from September 2014. Schools have been given greater freedom in their interpretation of this curriculum to meet the needs of their pupils. In preparation for the launch of the new curriculum Rodmersham have met with parents, listened to the children and investigated a range of resources both online and through the expertise of specialists to ensure that we meet all of the expectations and the coverage of the National Curriulum.

In each year group, one project will be led by the interests of the children. Teachers will respond to their class’s particular interest through the devising of a project, whilst still ensuring that the key skills, knowledge and understanding outlined by the National Curriculum objectives are taught and developed.

The 2014 National Curriculum is what is called a mastery curriculum, and clear objectives to be achieved at the end of each year group have been set out by the Department for Education. Therefore, the levels such as 2b, 3a or 4c will no longer be used – and instead a child will be evaluated at an ‘emerging’, ‘expected’ or ‘exceeding’ level of performance for their particular year group.

The vertical grouping of the year groups is addressed by having a 2 year plan of curriculum coverage.
