The Ark John Archer Curriculum
In designing the intent on which our curriculum will stand, our thinking stretched far beyond the outcomes derived from summative assessment points throughout the year, or end of key stage results. Here at Ark John Archer Primary Academy, we aspire for all of our pupils to reach their full potential both academically and socially and, with this in mind, aim to develop highly aspirational, emotionally literate and knowledgeable individuals who have a genuine passion for learning and a positive sense of identity. From Early Years to Year 6, our curriculum should build the foundations on which life-long learners and confident leaders of the future can grow.
Deep rooted within our vision is the need for pupils to be exposed to practical, creative, engaging and challenging opportunities that develop their natural curiosity to learn, broadens their understanding and ‘brings learning to life’. We believe that by working together as one we can provide our pupils with the strong start to their journey in education that they need, and more importantly, deserve.
Our Curriculum is rooted in 5 key principles:
Knowledge rich and learning through enquiry
A holistic approach
Inspiring joy for learning
Character based curriculum
Parents as partners
