Children are at the heart of Crawford Village Primary School and we strive to ensure that all
children feel safe, secure and truly valued as individuals. We provide a curriculum which
enables every child to have access to high quality, personalised learning opportunities.

Our curriculum embraces the community in which it is situated, recognising local history,
heritage, geographical and business links and most importantly, the aspirations of all our
children. We place strong emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our pupils and, to this end, implement a regular cycle of curriculum activity days linked to ‘skills for life’. Our school community has identified a clear set of values that underpin expectations for behaviour for all members of our school family.

 

 

English lessons throughout key stage two are planned from a range of high quality texts,
film clips, or current affairs to engage children in their learning, covering a broad range of
genre and text-types. In key stage one, teaching and learning in EDSC_9478nglish is planned around the topic being covered in the foundation subjects. A strong emphasis is placed on ‘writing for real’ – giving children a real-life purpose for their writing in order to engage and enthuse. The teaching of grammar, punctuation and spelling is embedded within English lessons and is also delivered discretely to support pupil progress in these basic skills.
Reading for pleasure is promoted throughout school, with regular opportunities for pupils to read independently, in guided groups and in whole-class novel sessions.

Teaching and learning in mathematics is based on Lancashire Key Learning in Mathematics planning documents, ensuring full coverage of the programmes of study from National Curriculum 2014 for each year group.

2015-01-27 11.19.49The foundation subjects and science are taught through a termly or half-termly topic with particular lead subject areas for the topic. Computing is taught discretely and through cross-curricular application of skills.  Pupils also have regular opportunities to apply their learning in maths and English across the curriculum.

 

 

The principles underpinning the ‘Characteristics of Effective Learning’ outlined in the Early
Years Foundation Stage – Playing and Exploring; Active Learning; and Creating and
Thinking Critically – are promoted through our curriculum from Reception to Year 6. We
believe that it is through these principles that we will truly engage, challenge and motivate
our children, instilling in them a love of learning that extends beyond their primary years,
equipping them with the skills for their future and developing them as creative, responsible
and self-aware individuals.
