Curriculum Statement

At Ravenscroft Primary School we aim high. We want every part of our school community – pupils, parents and members of staff to experience success. Our school motto is ‘Soaring to Success. 

In all that we do we endeavour to provide a high quality of education within a creative, stimulating, encouraging and mutually supportive environment where children are enabled to develop the skills they require to reach their full potential and have a successful future. 


All National Curriculum subjects are carefully planned, structured and sequenced to ensure progression across units of work and across year groups or key stages. It is structured to help pupils remember long term the content that they have been taught and pupils are encouraged to integrate this new knowledge into larger areas. It is rooted, and has grown from, a solid agreement between all subject leaders about the knowledge and skills that our pupils will need in order to ensure that they develop resilience, growing and developing academically, physically, socially and morally.  We aim to tailor our curriculum to fulfil every child’s potential, taking into account (and adapting our curriculum) to incorporate local events and exhibitions.  Through a curriculum that is both stimulating and challenging, we develop curiosity about the world around them and enable children to grow and develop, becoming independent, active learners.

Throughout all areas of the curriculum, reading is prioritised.  Key vocabulary for all subjects is prominent on working walls and children are given access to a range of age-appropriate texts across all subject areas.

There is a sharp focus on phonics for our younger pupils and a programme of support is in place for any older children who may need additional help, these may be SEND, EAL or new to country.

A range of after school activities and additional experiences such as fieldwork, educational visits and visitors to school, ensure that both enjoyment and learning are enhanced – helping to support the development of the whole child.

Our curriculum is inclusive of children with special educational needs. A focus on regular retrieval practice and over-learning of knowledge enables SEND children to retain knowledge, vocabulary and therefore gain a sense of success. Highly skilled staff adapt teaching where necessary, make reasonable adjustments and scaffold learning for pupils with SEND, ensuring they have access to the same content as their peers.

Children’s progress is carefully monitored through appropriate assessment and, where children are found to need additional support, we have a variety of interventions to help them.

Our staff at Ravenscroft Primary School work hard, and are incredibly proud of, our stimulating and progressive curriculum that meets the needs of all of our pupils.
