At Bradley Green Primary Academy we provide the children with a rich and broad curriculum within which all pupils can learn and achieve.
We have introduced the new National Curriculum 2014 with a cross-curricular approach. The topics include ‘I’m a year 6 pupil, get me out of here’, ‘What was it like 100 years ago’, ‘Would a dinosaur make a good pet?’ and ‘Extreme Earth’. This has encompassed skills and knowledge from different subject areas such as the history and geography, Science, the arts. Each topic starts with an exciting WOW moment that hooks the children's interests and gets them exciting about what they will be learning about.
The curriculum is enhanced through visits, visitors and special events throughout the year. For example year 6 have the opportunity to participate in a newspaper writing workshop, led by a reporter to give the Year 6 pupils real life experiences and a purpose for writing. As a school we strive to give children the opportunity to gain essential skills, understanding and knowledge, which allow them to become independent in their learning.
We love ICT here at Bradley Green and have a range of netbooks, laptops, iPads, and much more for the children to use in their computing lessons and for cross-curricular learning. We have also embraced the new Computing currciulum and children right across school have been learning how to program, film using green screen and create exciting stories for others to read on our class blogs.
We are seeking to develop people who are happy and equipped to make a positive contribution to society, achieve economic well-being and are lifelong learners.
At Bradley Green we actively promote the fundamental British values, our school council eco committee and Fair Trade council are re-elected each year through democratic council elections. Throughout the process the children learn about the voting system and democracy. The behaviour systems in our school are built upon our core values of respect, curiosity, challenge and confidence .These systems allow our children to develop their sense of 'rule of law'. 'Individual liberty' 'mutual respect' and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are officially taught through the Religious Education (RE) and Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum and are further nurtured through the school's ethos and promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) understanding.
A good, well-managed homework programme helps children to develop the skills and attitudes they will need for successful lifelong learning.
Homework also supports the development of independent learning skills and provides parents with an opportunity to take part in their children’s education. Spellings, reading, maths and English skills are sent home on a weekly basis.
Children are assessed by teachers on a daily basis during lessons through discussion, observations and scrutiny of work.
This ‘Assessment For Learning’ enables the teachers to provide personalised provision for the children in their class so that all children reach their full potential.
Summative assessment (formal assessments and tests) are also used to support teachers professional decisions on academic levels.
