This section contains details of our curriculum and events that have or are taking place in the school including information about school performances, exhibitions, residential trips and sporting events.
Every State funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
* See Section 78 of the 2002 Education Act which applies to all maintained schools. Academies are also required to offer a broad and balanced curriculum in accordance with Section 1 of the Academies Act.
South Avenue Primary School, as part of the Fulston Manor Academy Trust, has chosen to use the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum as the basis for its curriculum. We also use the Kent Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. In addition to this, the school seeks to use innovative and inspiring opportunities to enhance the learning of the children.
Since 2003, when the DFE issued a document entitled “Excellence and Enjoyment”, this school has worked to mould the curriculum in our “own identity”. We follow a Creative Curriculum, underpinned by the teaching of specific learning skills, making use of the school grounds and environment, local area and other resources to support learning.
At South Avenue Primary School we are continually looking at ways to create more meaningful links between subjects to promote learning by using different teaching strategies and creating a stimulating learning environment.
