Curriculum Overview

Scotter Primary Curriculum Intent

An Overview of the Curriculum - due to the organisation of the year groups, there is a two year curriculum cycle

How accessible is the curriculum?


  • Class teachers address the needs of all children through quality first teaching and ensure that all groups of children get an equal share of their time in lessons.
  • The curriculum is matched to the needs of the child through accurate evaluation of prior knowledge and understanding the children’s individual next steps.
  • Children can be seated in a specified position in the classroom to enable them to see and hear the teacher properly and to reduce distraction and improves focus.
  • Personalised targets, curriculum, and support are provided as appropriate, to also ensure children are meeting their next steps and are included in learning with their peers.
  • Reasonable adjustments are made to tasks, activities and experiences to ensure the success of all children. (For example, clear expectations, reduced quantity of work, alternative forms of recording, or extra time/ support.)
  • The British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, and for those without faith, are interwoven into our curriculum.  As a school embarking on the Unicef's rights of a child charter, the rights of a child are explicitly taught and lived in school.
