At Drapers Mills Primary Academy, our aim is to inspire young minds and shape futures using a stimulating curriculum to help develop aspirational, independent children. Our curriculum is engaging, with a richness of language at the heart of everything we do.
Across our curriculum, lessons are sequenced to provide the necessary progression of knowledge and skills. Resources to support the curriculum are well thought out, allowing teachers the opportunity to use their craft to design lessons and experiences which stimulate children’s critical thinking, reasoning, language development and grasp of basic skills. Teachers build in appropriate challenge and provide opportunities to revisit vital skills and knowledge regularly and embed their learning.
We track progress across the curriculum. Cold tasks and hot tasks enable pupils to clearly demonstrate and celebrate their progress and marking and feedback enables children to have a clear understanding of their next steps. All children deserve the taste of success, therefore children’s achievements are celebrated with parents and carers, as well as within the school.
