At Chartham Primary School we teach and encourage the transferable skills for independent, life-long learning. We shape our curriculum to reflect the ethos, aims and values of our school.
In every year group throughout the school our teachers plan a series of topic-based approaches to learning which are based on the 2014 National Curriculum and firmly rooted upon a set of skills that are progressive. Wherever possible, the topic is used to link core and foundation subjects together such as English and history, science and maths.
Our creative curriculum is a carefully planned, thematic approach to teaching and learning designed to support children's natural curiosity and stimulate their creativity. It offers children the opportunity to work in depth, giving them the time they need to reflect, consolidate and transfer their learning.
We place a strong emphasis on developing creativity in all areas of a broad and rich curriculum and prioritise independence in learning to encourage all our children to make their own choices, as well as supporting each other. Our children are excited by their learning and are able to develop a wide range of skills that they will be able to carry with them throughout life.
All children have an entitlement to a well–resourced and rich learning environment that promotes their sense of responsibility and autonomy. This is demonstrated through our child led assemblies where we celebrate fellow pupils' achievements in front of the whole school community.
