Every school has National Curriculum documents for each subject. These documents describe what teachers must teach at each key stage.
The National Curriculum does not include detailed lesson plans for teachers. Schools and teachers draw up their own schemes of work and lesson plans based on the National Curriculum. Teachers will plan these lessons, taking account of their pupils' needs. Schools also decide for themselves which textbooks and other teaching materials to use.
At Swimbridge we have a long established curriculum-rolling programme designed to ensure that all pupils are exposed to all aspects of the National Curriculum, and more. We believe children need a broad and balanced, enjoyable, curriculum based as much as possible on creativity and the acquisition of skills. With recent national demands this has not always been easy to provide. Our emphasis on field work in the Humanities, exploration through play (especially for younger children), swimming, creative use of computers, music, maypole dancing and the like indicate the direction we are going.
