The Curriculum at Applecroft School:
Our Curriculum Intent:
At Applecroft School, we believe passionately in a curriculum that inspires and is ambitious for all. Our curriculum consciously blends skills, knowledge and values which hold significance in our community.
Our child-centred approach, places great importance on the personal development of our pupils with an emphasis on supporting and developing the ‘whole child’; recognising their unique strengths, talents and positive contribution they can make.
Carefully crafted, our broad and balanced curriculum provides a wealth of opportunities and enrichment activities including the ‘Applecroft Adventure’.
Our curriculum provides children with the necessary skills and knowledge required for future success and offers inspiration through identified role-models who have excelled and made a significant impact on the world.
We aim to remove any limiting factor in each child’s circumstances or their belief of what they can achieve, whilst instilling the reality that great things are achieved with hard work, determination and resilience.
At Applecroft, in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) we follow the Statutory Framework for the EYFS and supplement this guidance with the DfE's non-statutory 'Development Matters' document.
In Key Stage One (Years 1 & 2) and Key Stage Two (Years 3-6), we follow the National Curriculum.
