We believe that the Desford Curriculum is not just about what the children learn during lessons, but is about every experience, interaction and moment that they are at school. As well as delivering all of the primary national curriculum subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, Art & Design, Computing, Design & Technology, Geography, History, Languages, Music, Physical Education), our school reaches beyond these in ensuring that the children receive a broader range of experiences that open their minds to opportunities and enable them to grasp a wholesome understanding of the world around them and how they can have a positive impact on this.
Each year group's curriculum has been constructed using the curriculum drivers to ensure that they are integrated into the children's learning in all subject areas. Below are the year group overviews that show how this has been done.
Each subject has a progression of skills and objectives that set out the content of each block of learning. Our subject areas are split into five main categories. Details about the skills and objectives for each subjects subject area are laid out in these five categories below.
