Our Curriculum

Our curriculum encompasses the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. However, this is only one element of the wider school curriculum. Our curriculum is ever evolving to positively meet the needs of our children and progressing to suit these. 

An effective curriculum attains the right balance between what a school must teach and the aims and values identified as specific to your school community and the needs of our children. At The Arches, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that is diverse in content and intricately taiolred to meet the needs of the children within our school context. Our curriculum is exciting and progressive and is ever developing. Statements of intent, implementation and impact can be found on subject pages. 

To support staff with high quality delivery and development of the school's developing curriculum, supporting educational organisations meet on a regular basis with Subject Leaders and teaching practitioners, moderating internally, planning and much more. 

Such organisations include examples such as the ones outlined below. 

  • First 4 Maths
  • Literacy Counts
  • Phonics Counts
  • Phonics Hub
  • High Impact 

In addition to this, all Subject Leaders and teaching practitioners also attend regular moderation and support meetings within the local BEV (Blacon Educational Village) cluster. An outline of BEV teaching and learning events are outlined within the document below.
