At Alconbury we aim to offer a fun, relevant and exciting curriculum. We tend to deliver most of our curriculum through Topic Work or in blocks of work which engage both the teacher and the learner. We link work together so that children can apply their learning to many different curriculum areas, e.g. science work on ‘materials’ may also look at clothing through history, collage in art, natural & manmade materials in the school outdoor environment, graph work in maths and links with many fiction books, such as ‘The Iron Man’.

Alconbury is an inclusive school which aims to meet the needs of all children from Special Educational Needs to Gifted and Talented.

Our Curriculum

English schools have to develop their curriculum from the National Curriculum 2000. The four subjects of English, mathematics, science and information, communication technology (ICT) form what is known as the Core Curriculum. The following subjects, classified as Foundation Subjects, include art and design, design and technology, geography, history, music and physical education. Religious Education is included by statute.

At Alconbury, we also give curriculum time to Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) in order to explore issues such as morality, behaviour and personal safety. This is now offered as non-statutory guidance in the National Curriculum 2000.

We also follow a sex education policy, which is available to parents on request.

All the Core and Foundation Subjects have statutory orders related to them, which lay down specific attainment targets for children. At Alconbury School, work is planned with these attainment targets firmly in mind and each child's progress is monitored with reference to them.

Throughout England, children are formally assessed in the school year in which they are 7 years old (i.e., at the end of Key Stage One) and again when they are 11 years old (at the end of Key Stage Two). Parents will be informed of how their child has performed in these statutory end of Key Stage tests, known as Standard Assessment Tests (SATs).

We also assess children during their year in Reception Class. This Foundation Stage Profile gives us an initial benchmark to help determine the child’s individual stage of development and early learning needs. This Reception year is part of the Foundation Stage and works towards the National Early Learning Goals.

To ensure that we offer our pupils a curriculum that provides continuity and progression,we have devised a whole school curriculum framework that is carefully planned over a two-year, age appropriate cycle. These plans enable us to build up appropriate resources as well as help ensure that our teaching and learning is as broad and balanced as possible.
