Curriculum aims and intent
At Cuddington, within and beyond the classroom, pupils will have access to a broad and rich curriculum that will equip our children with a:
determination to succeed academically:
sense of themselves and others:
spirit of adventure:
At Cuddington, the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Guidance and the National Curriculum provide a framework for our School Curriculum.
Subjects are taught separately, however links between the subjects are exploited to allow knowledge to be consolidated, reinforced and applied.
In Reception and Nursery our teachers follow the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum. (EYFS) It focuses upon developing learning in the following areas :
- Communication, Language and Literacy (CLL)
- Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy (PSRN)
- Creative Development (CD)
- Physical Development (PD)
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World (KUW)
In Years 1 to 6 teachers follow the National Curriculum. Children have access to the full range of subjects within our curriculum which includes:
- Physical Education
- Modern Foreign Languages (Children at Cuddington learn French)
- Design Technology
- Personal, Social and Health Education
- Religious Education (we follow the Surrey Locally Agreed Syllabus)
In all that we do and across our curriculum we seek to encourage and support children's understanding of fundamental British values.
Pupils are taught to value
- Democracy: We make decisions together
- Rule of Law: We understand the need for rules
- Individual Liberty: We believe in freedom for all
- Mutual Respect and Tolerance: We treat others how we would like to be treated
Information about the curriculum being followed for each year group can be found on the 'Class' information page.
Learning at Cuddington Community Primary School
Well established and deeply embedded learning behaviours enable children to be effective learners. We teach, model, expect and celebrate 5 key learning behaviours. Each of these behaviours is related to a gem enabling the treasure of learning to be discovered. Children will be rewarded with 'physical' gems linked to the 5 'Learning Gem Behaviours,'
