The Curriculum is arranged in accordance with the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. Copies of all the documents relating to the National Curriculum can be studied at the school.
Queensway is committed to the academic advancement of all children to the levels of attainment of which they are capable. The pattern of work of our younger children, the Key Stage 1 group, is to develop basic learning skills related to number and language, to encourage observation and discussion and to provide opportunities for experiencing a variety of creative activities to promote a better awareness of others.
Children within the Foundation Stage have their curriculum planned around six areas of learning.
As the children progress to Key Stage 1, objectives become more specific and the work begun in the early years is consolidated and developed. A wider choice of topics and subject areas is made available with the intention of encouraging self-discipline, communication, judgement, responsibility and creativity.
Staff in Key stage groups plans work and the policy of the school. It is for the class teacher to take responsibility for the programme of work for each individual child. The classroom organisation, as far as possible, allows for the structure of the teaching groups to be related to an individual child's ability in a specific subject and in accordance with the National Curriculum. All teachers keep records of each child's progress and share any concerns, which they may have with the parents.
