Curriculum Intent

In line with the National Curriculum and the 2019 Ofsted Education Inspection Framework, Robert Kett Primary school offers a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based.

In order to promote school coherence and continuity of learning, our school curriculum is organised under six half-termly ‘Themes: Near and Far, People, Animals, Buildings and Structures, Plants and Long Ago. Within these ‘themes’, year groups will study more focused and age-appropriate topics that build upon knowledge and skills from year to year but within a common whole school theme.

Our school curriculum is also enhanced with a range of other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of our pupils. Learning is exciting and in a meaningful context for children. Where commonality exists between subjects and aspects, learning is linked and lessons taught using a cross-curricular approach whereby many of the subjects taught will link together under a topic heading. Where this is not achievable, subjects are taught discretely.

At Robert Kett Primary School, we aim to make links with our local community. Examples include: a visit to Wymondham Abbey and meeting with a local historian when studying history and geography; meeting residents at our local care home and using a local area - the Lizard - the setting for our writing.
