KINGSHURST PRIMARY SCHOOL CURRICULUM VISION
As a result of consultation with staff, governors, pupils and parent views, we have developed our curriculum in order to provide our children with:
A skills and knowledge-based progressive curriculum designed to develop and broaden children’s experiences, independence and resilience; preparing children for the real world and to embed a love of learning. Through strong community links, we aim to raise aspirations for future careers as well as respect for, and engaging with, our local community.

Curriculum Jigsaws by Year Group
For children in the Early Years we have used our baseline information to create an ongoing curriculum that covers the 7 areas of learning from the starting points of the children.
In Nursery, we have a focus on the prime areas of education, including communication and language, personal, social and emotional development, and physical development through stories and rhymes, Jigsaw (PSED), Blast (CaL) and Phonics/RWI (CaL / Literacy) and everyday physical and outdoor opportunities (PD). We also cover the specific areas of learning alongside these opportunities in our curriculum.
In Reception, we will address any gaps in language, early reading and mathematics, particularly ensuring children’s acquisition of phonic knowledge and extending their vocabulary. This will be implemented through stories and rhymes, Language Link (CaL), RWI Phonics, Blast (CaL) White Rose Maths and the curriculum we provide alongside this to support children's learning across the 7 areas.
Children in the Early Years have access to the outdoors on a daily basis and regular Forest School Sessions.
