The amalgamation of Urmston Infant and Junior Schools in 2017 began a passionate journey into curriculum development. Urmston Primary’s school values of resilience, responsibility, respect, happiness, kindness and pride, like our motto of ‘Growing Together. Empowered to Be More’, has become engrained into the fabric of school life and also weaved into every context and every topic that the children learn about. It continues to evolve so that it incorporates local, national and global contexts and enables our pupils to become knowledgeable young citizens who want to actively make a difference and make the world a better place. This is all the more important in the midst of a pandemic, and the aftermath, and so this curriculum – along with other initiatives based upon wellbeing and character education - will continue to develop and evolve in order to inspire our children to be reflective, positive, independent and pro-active young people who gain strength and identity from following our values. Below is our Curriculum Policy. It outlines our vision, rationale, aims and principles, explains how our 'Being More' curriculum has been developed and how it is becoming key to teaching and learning at UPS. You will also find below our Topic Overviews for Year 1 to Year 6. As mentioned, these will evolve as the teachers consider exciting ways to engage our children in its content.
Our Early Years practitioners have been doing some fantastic work on our EYFS curriculum too, much of which compliments our 'Being More' Curriculum. On the EYFS page you'll find out all about this and about the progression of skills within Nursery and Reception. Furthermore, on each of the subject tabs to the left, you'll see not only knowledge and skills progressions from Years 1-6 for each subject, but you'll see subject organisers for the Early Years and how these lead into Year 1 and the primary curriculum. Super stuff, which we hope will keep evolving to meet the needs and desires of our wonderful children!
