The Curriculum at Upland
At Upland school we are proud to deliver an exciting, enriching and well rounded curriculum. Our Teaching and Learning Handbook, brings together our expectations of how the Upland Curriculum should be delivered.
We ensure that when our pupils leave in year 6, they leave with the behaviours (our Personal Attributes) that they need to succeed in the world such as: resilience and determination, team work, responsibility, independence and confidence, creativity, pride, and personal safety and well-being as well as the appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum. Layering knowledge across subjects so that it becomes embedded and children can flourish, reach and exceed their potential academically, physically, emotionally and artistically.
Please find the whole school Curriculum Map below:
Subject Skills and Knowledge Organisers
Using the whole school Curriculum Map as a base, we have developed Subject Skills and Knowledge Organisers.
This ensures that our curriculum is progressive, giving our children the opportunity to build skills within each subject as they move through the school.
In addition to this, meaningful links are made across the curriculum, where possible and appropriate, allowing children to be immersed in the knowledge of the topic.
These documents are being developed and are subject to change:
Evaluating the impact of the curriculum at Upland
Please refer to the Curriculum Team pages to the left to view the evaluation of each subject and how we intend to develop. They are working documents and the version on the website may not be the most recent version.
In consultation with parent representative from the Upland Parent Partnership, our homework policy has been rewritten. We value the opportunity to extend the layer of knowledge outside of school and, with this in mind, homework is themed around topics allowing children to develop their academic, physical, emotional and artistic skills.
Remote Learning at Upland
In the event of self isolations, bubble closures or national lockdowns, we have created remote learning guidance so that we are able to continue our education offer away from the school building. The handbook and expectation documents outline how we plan to continue to provide Quality First Teaching from a distance.
