Learning in the love of God
The curriculum starts where the child is. This means that what each child brings to school must be recognised and valued, just as each child is equally valued. The curriculum must be accessible and meaningful for all pupils, building on their strengths.
The provision at Trefonen takes account of every aspect of a child’s development. The curriculum gives children the opportunity to achieve the highest possible standards of numeracy and literacy, whilst ensuring they can become confident in physical, artistic, musical, sporting, scientific and social skills. We provide a broad and balanced education allowing for the individual needs of each child to be met within well-planned learning experiences.
The National Curriculum states that all pupils should study three core subjects and ten foundation subjects.
Design Technology and cooking, Music and Art
History, Geography and Modern Languages
Plus ICT, Physical Education (PE), Religious Education (RE) and Personal Health and Social Education (PHSE)
We are continually striving to make our school curriculum even more engaging for the children and to help them develop the skills that they will need in the future. Most foundation subjects and some literacy work is taught through a cross-curricular topic.
Throughout all areas of the curriculum, children will acquire knowledge and develop skills (e.g. observing, co-operating, questioning and problem solving) and will be required to express their views and justify opinions.
The children will have many opportunities to discuss their work and ideas with each other and with their teacher. They will be encouraged to develop a positive and thoughtful attitude to learning and to those around them. At the beginning of each term, parents are sent full details of the lesson content for that term.
