At Rowlatts Mead Primary Academy, we offer a curriculum which is broad, balanced and builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all learners, whatever their starting points as they progress through each Key Stage. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the learners in our academy. Our Creative Novel Based approach enables children to make links between their learning and build effectively on prior knowledge. The aim of our curriculum is for children to have the requisite skills and acquire the knowledge from agreed concepts to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for the next stage of their education.

At Rowlatts, we have put together a list of 32 key concepts that are completely embedded into our Topics across the school. The table below shows how they are explored in each year group.

It is important that our curriculum considers the development of the whole child with the focus not being purely on academic success. Nurturing children’s independence and motivation as learners coupled with their sense of responsibility as future citizens builds on the key elements of our teaching and learning. The development of children’s wellbeing and mental health sits at the heart of all our teaching and provision.  For more details on this see our Health and Wellbeing section.

Our children have opportunities to share their learning with each other, their parents and carers and other learners through daily morning tasks (8.35 – 8.45am), school-based and external exhibitions, performances, competitions and events involving other schools.
