Curriculum at BG
We follow the National Curriculum at BG, through our unique EXCELLENT Curriculum by BG. Each curriculum area is led by one of our staff, who develops an annual action plan to ensure that we keep pace with national changes and best practice. Each subject follows a yearly Long Term Plan and Sequence document and subject leads have created medium term plans which provide the specific skills, knowledge and vocabulary that will be covered within each unit. We work hard to ensure that our curriculum is logically sequenced and we define the non-negotiable knowledge we want our children to learn.
We ensure regular assessment and progress tracking across the curriculum and teachers are accountable for the progress children make across the whole curriculum.
The links on the left will take you to information about how we plan and deliver each area of the curriculum.
We believe that curriculum is everything we do - encompassing academic learning, cultural capital, well-being, personal development, learning attitudes and safeguarding. Our curriculum is built with our foundation motto in mind: EXCELLENCE: EVERYthing; EVERYone; EVERYwhere.
Our Overall Curriculum Intent
At BG, we intend that all of our pupils will be prepared for life in modern Britain, through a programme of well-planned and coherently sequenced curriculum that exposes them to agreed, non-negotiable knowledge about the world in which they live. We are committed to ensuring that our curriculum not only provides the essential knowledge and skills in core and wider subjects, but that we enhance our offer to make sure that our learners develop the cultural capital needed to make a positive contribution to the world around them, communicate with others and celebrate diversity. We intend that every child at BG makes this journey in a safe, happy and well-resourced learning environment.
The specific intention of each curriculum subject can be found in the individual strategy documents on the subject pages on the left.
If you would like more information about our curriculum - please use the links on this page, or contact curriculum leaders directly via the school office. Jo Burton - our Deputy Headteacher - oversees the whole curriculum and will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Home Learning Page Links
As the school is now fully open to all children, we have removed our Home Learning group pages from view. In the even that we need to close individual groups for face-to-face provision, we will provide details directly to affected families about home learning, as well as updating our Home Working page, which can be accessed here.
Details of our remote learning offer during the closure for January 2021 can be found by downloading our Homework and Home Learning Policy, which can be found by clicking here.
