Here at Baston CE Primary School we enjoy a wide and varied curriculum.
Our children learn the key skills of Maths, English, Science and Computing as well as those in other curriculum subject areas such as Religious Education, PE, art, music, history and geography. French is taught to Year 3 and 4, Spanish to Year 5 and 6.
In Key Stage One, we use the Read, Write, Inc reading scheme. This is carried out in focused groups led by trained teachers and teaching assistants, all across the key stage.
Every class has one session of Outdoor Learning every week.
We have specialist music teaching provision, so that children have music as part of their weekly curriculum.
Teachers put together an overview of what will be covered each term, please look at the Topic Web page for each year group for more information on what the children will cover over the year. For more detailed information about reading, writing and mathematics coverage in any year group, please see the End of Year Expectations which are available on our school website.
Teachers set high expectations for every pupil. They plan stretching work for pupils whose attainment is significantly above the expected standard. They have an even greater obligation to plan lessons for pupils who have low levels of prior attainment or come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Teachers use appropriate assessment to set targets which are deliberately ambitious.
Teachers take account of their duties under equal opportunities legislation that covers race, disability, sex, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, and gender reassignment.
A wide range of pupils have special educational needs, many of whom also have disabilities. Lessons are planned to ensure that there are no barriers to every pupil being able to achieve. Tailored planning means that these pupils are able to access the full national curriculum.
