Welcome to Chaigeley School

Curriculum Overview

At Chaigeley School, we have both a formal and informal curriculum to support the needs of our pupils. We present our pupils with an enriched learning experience that not only covers many areas of the National Curriculum but that also creates a love of learning by breaking down barriers to learning. Our aim is to ensure that by the end of the school journey, our pupils are ready to embark on the next stages of their lives more independent, knowledgeable, skilful and happier and confident in their own potential.

Lower School Curriculum

Lower School offers a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum which is underpinned by the key skills of speaking and listening, reading, writing and mathematics across all subject areas. This ensures that the children are given opportunities to learn, and develop new skills. Reading is given a high priority with daily Guided Reading lessons.

Our provision is delivered using nurture principles. As Nurture Group we provide a carefully planned day, where there is a balance of learning and teaching, affection and structure within a home-like atmosphere. The emphasis is on emotional growth – focusing on offering broad-based experiences in an environment that promotes security, routines, clear boundaries and carefully planned, repetitive learning opportunities.

Children are exposed to a range of subjects and activities that allow them to experience different topics and learning styles. This includes Design Technology (Resistant Materials and Food Technology), Art, Music, Craft, ICT and P.E. Lessons. Learning experiences for our children are further enhanced through visits and trips in line with our topic areas.

Homework is given on an individual basis and includes weekly spellings, reading and topic related learning.

New Primary Curriculum
