Curriculum Rationale

Click on each year group under Classes and Curriculum to see what they have planned for this year.

Our curriculum has been designed to give Thanet Primary School an individual identity and ethos which reflects our shared values and vision. Our school context is a key driver when planning and implementing the curriculum. We aim to equip our pupils with independence and the skills necessary to succeed in life

Depth, breadth and balance are the underlying principles of the curriculum which enables all pupils to achieve.

The curriculum is designed to enable pupils to achieve depth in their learning by providing them with opportunities to master and build on key skills throughout the primary years.

The curriculum provides breadth through offering experiences that are tangible and meaningful to our pupils in order to enrich their learning.

The shaping of our curriculum provides balance and encourages pupils to achieve academically, physically and emotionally. It allows pupils to work collaboratively, build resilience and ultimately become good citizens. SMSC and British Values weave through the curriculum.

The intent, implementation and impact underpins the curriculum journey.

Our curriculum intent includes ensuring pupils at Thanet will:

  • Enjoy purposeful learning that helps them understand their community and the wider world
  • Have their aspirations raised, be inspired and motivate them to do their best
  • Leave Thanet as resilient, lifelong learners

This is implemented by teachers having expert skills and knowledge and supporting pupils with building concepts into their long term memory with transferable skills. It is relevant to the needs of the pupils and encourages partnerships with all stakeholders. Subject leaders are well-equipped to lead individual subjects and have a clear vision of what they want their subject to highlight.

The impact of the curriculum is measured through regular book scrutinies, subject specific learning walks and pupil questionnaires. The school leadership team and governors relentlessly drive the curriculum forward and monitor it vigorously.
