Our Meridian Primary Curriculum
Our school stands by our strap headline ‘Learning for Life’. This is a bold statement. We are a learning community and striving for excellence in all that we do.
In the seven years children spend with us, we are there to inspire, impart, facilitate and value learning; encourage good relationships and compassion for others; and build confident children to grow and embrace challenges and to challenge others.
Our curriculum is broad and balanced to allow children the opportunity to access knowledge while learning skills. We have used the national curriculum and our expertise to map out the key skills in each subject area. These ensure that we develop both coverage and progression in the curriculum for KS1 and KS2.
We have built these milestones into engaging and thought provoking topics, enriched with our drivers below.
We also still teach discrete maths and English in every class daily.
What makes our curriculum different?
We place high value on the following key ‘R’ words to help us plan, deliver and explore depths of topics and excite our learning as individuals and learning as a community.
Our topics incorporate these ‘R’s as part of the children’s learning journey. You will find evidence of the ‘R’s as you walk around the school, in books and through talking to the children.
All our topics start with a ‘big question’ and have an engaging title. Children are encouraged to develop their research beyond the classroom in every year group.
We are continuing to develop our curriculum to ensure it is interesting in order to captivate children’s imagination and stimulate their intellect. Above all, we aim to ensure we are continuing to raise standards in all areas, academically and socially for all our children.
