Curriculum

Our School Curriculum

At Boughton Monchelsea Primary school we aim to provide a curriculum that inspires our pupils and encourages them to be active, motivated and independent learners.

We believe that children learn best when they are fully engaged with and are enjoying their learning. In key stages 1 and 2 the children’s learning is driven by a different topic each term. At the end of the term pupils get to share their learning at the end of each term through things like school performances, exhibitions, class books or recitals.

In Reception class the children are taught the Early Years Foundation Stage Areas of Learning through shorter topics, led by their developing interests and passions.

Our school curriculum covers the programmes of study from the National Curriculum. We use a two-year curriculum cycle so that topics can be shared between classes 1 and 2, classes 3 and 4 and classes 5 and 6. This enables classes to collaborate and learn together while still meeting the National Curriculum requirements for their year group.

In the infants the children use the 'Letters and Sounds' phonics scheme and reading is taught using materials from a range of reading schemes. We also teach PSHE (including SRE) according to our school policy and use the Kent scheme for the teaching of RE.
