The Curriculum

Governing Body's Statement of Curriculum Aims

The Governors aim to provide a curriculum for all pupils which is broad and balanced and which will assist the full development of each pupil's potential. The school providesa curriculum which is relevant to the acquisition of all the basic skills but which also provides opportunities for creative work and the fostering of the expressive arts.

Core subjects are English, Mathematics, Science and ICT.

Foundation subjects are History, Geography, Design and Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education and French. At Cradley we also teach Primary Modern Foreign Languages (PMFL) to all children from Reception to year 6.

For each of these subjects the National Curriculum specifies:

  • attainment targets: objectives for what is to be learned at each key stage by the age of 7, 11, 14 and 16.
  • programmes of study: the essential ground to be covered in order to meet these objectives.
  • assessment arrangements: to find out how pupils are progressing through their school career.

Children spend on average 22.5 hours per week on National Curriculum learning activities.

Over the last year, we have worked with our partner schools in the cluster and have adopted the same assessment system as those. This will aid transition to John Masefield. Further details on the assessment structures can be foundhere. For further information you can look at our Statement of Assessment Principles.
