The Telferscot Curriculum
Our school has a commitment to providing a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the guidelines set out in the National Curriculum and Early Years framework.
Our School Curriculum follows all the requirements of the National Curriculum but we are proud to offer a much broader curriculum than that, making the most of many and varied opportunities in London and around the country to broaden and enrich the curriculum for our children.
At Telferscot, children in Key Stage 1 and 2 have daily English and Mathematics lessons and weekly Computing lessons and twice weekly PSHE sessions with their class teacher, and weekly Music and PE lessons with a specialist. Year 4 to 6 also have weekly French lessons with a specialist. The children in Key Stage 2 really enjoy their weekly Votes for Schools sessions where they find out about current issues, respectfully listen to each other's views, debate and share their opinions.
All other subjects are taught through a blocked curriculum structure that has been developed by our staff over time to reflect our community. The children spend between one and four weeks on each topic so that they can be fully immersed in the skills and knowledge of that subject. Children in Early Years also have daily Mathematics and English sessions and their topics and themes often mirror that of the rest of the school.
You can find out more about each subject on this website along with the long term curriculum maps below.
Children from Nursery to Year 3 love their weekly/fortnightly Forest School sessions and each year group in Key Stage 2 has a creative enhancement. Reception to Year 3 children have a weekly/fortnightly Art and Craft lesson with a specialist, Year 4 have an exciting project with the National Theatre, Year 5 always amaze with their Shakespeare Schools performance and Year 6 always put on a fantastic show in their end of year production.
Over the course of the year, all children have a theatre experience and there are lots of visits out to places of interest. We make the most of having London on our doorstep! We also welcome a range of visitors over the year to talk about their careers and experiences and to share their knowledge and skills. The Viking and Tudor days are a favourite! The children are always so inspired by their author and illustrator visits during our Festival of Arts and Literature.
The curriculum has a strong commitment to equal opportunities, diversity and multi-cultural values and ensures that all children enjoy success and high standards. In planning learning for children, every teacher ensures that learning is fully embedded in real life skills that promote lifelong learning.
