What Ofsted are saying about our Curriculum!

Ofsted January 2019

Turton Belmont Primary School

“We considered how well leaders have designed a broad and balanced curriculum. They have designed the curriculum to engage pupils through well- thought-out topics. Staff bring their own interests to add a fresh perspective to the material studied, such as when Year 3 and Year 4 pupils developed their own superlatives to describe the different planets in Star Wars. Schemes of work meet all the requirements of the national curriculum and develop pupils’ skills well. For example, in science, pupils carry out investigations and in computing, pupils use algorithms of increasing complexity. Topics are studied in depth. The curriculum is extended further by a wide range of visits, visitors and clubs that enthuse pupils.”

St. Mary’s RC Primary School

“We focused on the extent to which the curriculum is well planned in subjects beyond English and mathematics. You have introduced a new curriculum this year to ensure greater coverage of subjects. You have prioritised the improvement of the science curriculum. There is now a greater focus on the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills in this subject. As a result, pupils are gaining a deeper scientific understanding. The new curriculum delivers a range of subjects, such as art and history, through different cross-curricular topics. Teachers feel that these new topics have enlivened the curriculum and increased pupils’ engagement with subjects beyond English and mathematics.”

Madinayah Foundation School

“The curriculum has improved significantly since the previous inspection. As a result, pupils now engaged pupilsbenefit from a curriculum which enables them to make progress in a range of subjects.”

“Leaders have overhauled the curriculum so that learning is meaningful and engaging. As a result, pupils now study a variety of subjects. Pupils learn to develop an appreciation of art and history through themed project work, which helps deepen pupils’ knowledge and understanding.”

“A rich curriculum enables pupils to have a deep understanding of British values, including tolerance of others’ differences.”

 

 

 

Comment from Ofsted March 2016, Waterloo Primary School, Ashton-Under-Lyne

"The school's curriculum ensures a strong focus on developing the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils' knowledge and skills in other subjects, such as science, geography, history and art are developed through a range of cross-curricular topics and themes, which are planned to capture and motivate their interest and develop a love of learning. Pupils' positive views about their work reflect that this is successful."

3D PSHE Citizenship Programme is a wonderful resource and is easy to use. It fits with the development matters for EYFS and all PSHE aspects throughout the primary curriculum - including recent updates for Prevent. The programme is interactive and "hands on" getting the children engaged and involved who have enjoyed using it throughout the year. The provided lesson plans can be used independently or to support the SEAL programme already in school - so great for teachers and saves time on planning!

Bubbles Training Quote

"The Bubbles Music training was inspirational. As a non-specialist I now feel confident enough to approach music lessons without the ‘fear factor’! Highly recommended."

Daisyfield Primary School, Blackburn

"The school’s recently revised curriculum is interesting, broad and well balanced. Your carefully chosen revisions to the curriculum for subjects other than English and mathematics engage all learners, but particularly boys. Teachers make good use of practical experiences to engage pupils in learning about abstract concepts. For example, in a computing lesson, pupils developed their skills in creating and debugging algorithms through the production of a jam sandwich." (Daisyfield Primary School, Blackburn; Ofsted Short Inspection report December 2017)
