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.”

 

 

 

Marking Quote

“The Ofsted inspection reflected a huge improvement in our past performance. They were impressed with all aspects of the school and could see the curriculum work we are doing through Dimensions has made a big difference. They were particularly impressed with the marking programmes and the fact that the children were able to explain how they worked and implement next steps themselves. There is no doubt that Dimensions has had a hugely positive impact on raising standards.”

"Bubbles resources are incredibly simple and easy to follow. The warm-up activities are great – my children are singing ‘Radio Rock’ continually at the moment!!! I like the fact it links with other resources we have in school and that it reinforces teaching in other curricular areas. I've found it to be an invaluable, creative way to teach and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the resources to other teachers."

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!

“I'm really enjoying learning with our new themes. I can make connections between what I am learning in different subjects. We do lots of practical and fun things in class now. My favourite was the Cracking Ideas theme. I loved it so much I didn't want it to end!"

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."
