Phase Curriculum Overviews

At Offmore Primary School we believe that the curriculum is so much more than ‘what the children learn.’ We use the curriculum to give the children skills for life and to understand that they can make a difference to both themselves and others. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are at the heart of the Offmore curriculum.

The idea of this approach is that each topic is driven by a challenge or question that opens out the plans for the whole topic and directs the learning of knowledge and skills through the learning journey.

The cross curricular approach to learning ensures there are frequent opportunities for children to demonstrate that they can apply the knowledge and skills gained in core lessons (Reading, Writing, Maths and SPAG) into all areas of their work, again giving an opportunity to emphasise the purpose of learning . Our topics give clear opportunities for children to take responsibility for decisions, work in teams or independently, and to take on various roles within the process of learning and achieving. We believe in our curriculum creating opportunities that develop skills for life and a love for learning.
