We have planned our curriculum for children at The Globe to achieve ‘Learning for Life’. At The Globe we aim for children to leave school prepared, knowledgeable, confident and motivated for life’s journey.
We want all our children to finish primary school with:
- A love of learning.
- An understanding of the impact that all subjects have on daily life and the wider world.
- The ability to design creations, solve real life and relevant problems and have the essential knowledge to be educated citizens.
- The confidence to participate in an ever-changing world.
As a school we achieve this by.
- Providing opportunities for children to carry out research.
- Providing opportunities to develop ideas.
- Providing opportunities to explore, question and apply ideas.
- Promoting enthusiasm and enjoyment for learning through exciting teaching and learning opportunities.
- Encouraging the use of a range of techniques to complete tasks.
- Understanding the importance of new knowledge and skills.
- Developing an appreciation of their own and others work.
- Providing a rich environment that promotes learning from mistakes.
- Setting high expectations of all learners.
- Understanding the importance of communities and individuals’ responsibility to the environment.
Our broad and balanced curriculum is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values through coherently planned and well sequenced lessons which are successfully adapted, designed and developed to meet the needs of all pupils at each stage of their education. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning and to celebrate and develop the individual talents of our pupils, recognising everyone as unique with their own ambitions, skills and dreams. We aim to provide an environment that encourages learning for life.
Children leave The Globe with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
Skills and knowledge are taught across subject areas so that our children gain a broad understanding of each subject and know exactly which subject they are studying. The curriculum is designed to embed transferable skills throughout, without weakening essential skills-based learning. At The Globe Primary Academy we recognise the importance of feedback as an integral part of the teaching and learning cycle, and aim to maximise the effectiveness of its use in practice.
We plan our lessons with clear learning intentions. We base these upon the teacher’s detailed knowledge of each child, striving to ensure that all tasks set are appropriate to each child’s level of ability. Our lesson plans make clear the expected outcomes for each lesson.
Day‐to‐day, on-going assessment is a crucial method of assessment which provides instant feedback to the teacher and ensures progress within every lesson. This is evidenced with ‘The Globe Daily Diet’ which forms the basis of all lessons. This means we have a clear picture of a child’s level of understanding and, ensure that teachers can quickly assess when a child does not understand and needs greater support. This summative assessment information is used to inform planning for subsequent lessons.
Progress is assessed regularly. Children are expected to make good or better progress in all subjects and this individual progress is tracked. In cases where children are identified as making less than expected progress in English or Maths, rapid interventions are put in place to address gaps in learning.
At The Globe, the child is at the centre of everything we do and they will be provided with an opportunity to:
- Develop skills in leadership
- Be courageous
- Take responsibility
- Enjoy learning
- Inspire future learning
- Be part of an inclusive learning environment
