At Battle Primary Academy, our knowledge rich, child-centred curriculum secures firm foundations in English and Mathematics which underpins growing excellence in all other subjects. The uniqueness of every child is acknowledged and valued. As such, our curriculum recognises and celebrates the diverse backgrounds and experiences from which our children originate.
We offer a curriculum that is broad, balanced, relevant and ambitious. The curriculum at Battle Primary Academy is built on strong pedagogical principles, with every child encouraged to meet and achieve their potential.
Our curriculum ensures that learning is effective, exciting, culturally rich, prepares our pupils for the next stage of education and above all, is relevant to the needs of our children.
We teach discrete subjects, making links where possible so that the children secure the disciplinary knowledge and language they require to really understand a subject. In Maths, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of work to develop mastery. Our reading is taught using RWI Phonics and Fresh Start for those children learning to read and whole class reading lessons for the rest of the children. Our writing lessons are based on a focus text and we use the Talk For Writing approach to develop the oracy and writing skills of all. We have adopted the Cornerstones curriculum for teaching the foundation subjects. This is a high-quality, subject-driven curriculum for Nursery to Year 6 which follows a clear knowledge and skills framework and is expertly sequenced and interconnected.
Our approach to the curriculum ensures the curriculum is accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs, and complies with our duties in the Equality Act 2010 and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Regulations 2014.
Empowering opportunity and improving life chances is fundamental to everything we do.
