Curriculum

The school curriculum is planned and organised to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and the school’s curriculum policies and schemes of work, as well as Lincolnshire County Council education policies.

 

Our School Curriculum is designed to provide an exciting and challenging learning environment. If you visit our school you will find children and adults who work hard and you will see children having lots of fun enjoying a wide range of learning opportunities in an interactive, ICT rich environment across all curriculum areas.

 

For all Primary School children the curriculum is organised into three Key Stages:

 

  • Foundation Stage Curriculum for 3-5 year olds (Reception Year at Barrowby School; children aged from 4 years).

 

  • National Curriculum at Key Stage 1 for 5-7 year olds (Year Groups 1 and 2).

 

  • National Curriculum at Key Stage 2 for 7-11 year olds (Year Groups 3, 4, 5 and 6).

For each subject, and for each key stage, programmes of study set out what pupils should be taught. Within each subject there are attainment targets which set out expected standards of pupils’ achievements.

 

At Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 the National Curriculum consists of a range of subjects for children aged 5 -11. These subject areas, which may be taught within topics, are English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Music and Physical Education. Religious Education forms an important part of our curriculum with Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship. These areas are particularly recognised in our curriculum, to help our pupils to lead confident, healthy and independent lives, and to become responsible citizens.

Currently, our school is organised into eight classes, with some classes having children from more than one year group. Careful thought is given to class organisation and parents are informed of their child’s new class before the end of the Summer Term.
