The curriculum at Barton Park has been designed to provide children with high quality, rigorous and engaging learning opportunities.
In reception our curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage and in Key Stage One and Two it follows the National Curriculum 2014.
English and Maths will be taught using well established and respected schemes of work, to ensure coverage and progression of skills.
Our reading scheme is linked directly to our phonics, so you can be sure that the reading books sent home support in-class learning.
Barton Park will use the Learning Challenge Curriculum to create cross-curricular topics, each supported by a quality text in English. The Learning Challenge concept is built around the principle of greater child involvement in their work. It requires deep thinking and encourages children to work using a question as the starting point.
We have extended this principle to other subjects, to further foster our children’s curiosity and support them in developing mastery of each subject through independent enquiry. A flexible approach will ensure that we can respond to children's interests.
At Barton Park, we aspire to offer a variety of rich experiences that will deepen every child’s understanding and enjoyment, as well as being able to reflect the cultural heritage of our diverse community.
