Curriculum Overview

At Rosemellin, we plan and deliver a vibrant curriculum that offers quality learning experiences and opportunities for all of our pupils. Our aim is to develop an enjoyment and commitment to learning whilst aiming for the best possible attainment. We endeavour to build on pupils’ strengths, interests and talents and encourage them to learn independently and collaboratively. A quality curriculum will also promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development preparing them to be responsible, caring citizens.

We deliver the National Curriculum (NC) for Key Stage 1 and 2 and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework for Year R pupils:

The EYFS framework has 7 learning areas:

The 3 Prime areas are Communication and Language; Physical Development; and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

The 4 specific areas are Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World; and Expressive Arts and Design.

Pupils in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place indoors and outdoors.

For further information on our Foundation stage curriculum organisation look at Foundation under Curriculum on this website and for details on the EYFS framework please click on the EYFS Parents Guide Pdf below.

Reporting to Parents and Monitoring Progress

During the Autumn and Spring Terms, parents are invited to a parent consultation with the class teacher to discuss the child’s progress and review targets. In the Summer Term, parents receive an end of year report and are invited to meet with the class teacher upon request. A more formal meeting with the class teacher may be arranged as necessary.

Teachers monitor progress and attainment against National Standards. Assessments are on-going and a combination of Teacher Assessment and tests are used to inform future teaching and learning. We ask Parents/Carers to support our Home/School Agreement which promotes a partnership in learning between the child, parents/carers and staff in their child’s learning and development.

In addition to the above, parents are invited into school to ‘Meet the Teacher’ events In September each year and attend open evenings to view their child’s work.
