At Christ the King, we are aiming for an ambitious curriculum that provides high quality learning experiences for all pupils, including those with SEND (Equality Act 2010: guidance - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)). Our thoughtfully crafted curriculum, based on sound pedagogy, is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils and gives them the skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for their future lives. We understand that successful learning brings a change to long term memory. Our approach to learning is rooted in our mission statement ‘God’s kingdom we will build for our lives to be fulfilled’ and provides experiences and opportunities that enrich and enhance the spiritual and developmental needs of all of our pupils.
We are committed to meeting the requirements of the primary National Curriculum underpinned by our Gospel Virtues and British Values.
At Christ the King we want our children to experience:
Our curriculum will be implemented with our intent, as stated above, being the driver behind our practice. Our whole school team approach strengthens our mission, ethos and vision as we work together to reflect upon our curriculum and share outcomes driving forward the next steps. Learning is measured through careful analysis of application of skills and knowledge across the curriculum.
the curriculum is accessible for SEND pupils to ensure equality of opportunity, whilst taking account of pupil's individual needs (SEND | Christ the King Catholic Primary School (christkng.bham.sch.uk)
We are all on a learning journey together and because of this, our staff continually reflect on the impact of our teaching and curriculum through assessments, surveys (including parent and pupil voice), discussions, learning walks and a range of monitoring. Governors work alongside the school leadership team to monitor, evaluate and challenge how the intent and implementation of the curriculum is reflected in the teaching and learning at Christ the King, which enables our pupils to achieve their true potential. If we need to adapt our curriculum, we will, because the most important thing is that our pupils are happy, challenged learners, prepared for the next stage of their learning journey.
