Curriculum Overview

Curriculum Intent

At Serlby Park Academy, we follow the National Curriculum which is skills based and appropriate for the age of the children.

We teach the curriculum through half-termly topics, encouraging cross-curricular links between the subjects. Each topic is planned to engage and stimulate the children’s curiosity and interest through a variety of activities.

Reading for purpose is at the core of the wider curriculum, with children reading for purpose within every session. We call this our ‘Reading Enhanced Curriculum’ or The REC. Our units of work have a driving book, supplementary texts and bespoke knowledge organisers, which enable pupils to enrich their knowledge in a progressive way.  The curriculum is designed so that it is progressive and sequential through each unit, year and key stage allowing the children’s knowledge to be embedded and built upon over time.

Our curriculum intent is to teach the National Curriculum and the locally agreed RE syllabus. The curriculum ensures our children leave Serlby Park Primary Academy with the knowledge, skills and resilience they need to succeed in their secondary education.

Oracy is key to our work in our academy as pupils develop effective communication skills with increasing skill and confidence.
