The aim of the following policy document is to ensure that the ethos of the school is translated into the curriculum delivered.
The ethos of Muskham Primary School is centred upon the motto “Wisdom and Caring”. This motto epitomises the entire staffs’ commitment to coupling high academic expectation and achievement with a dedication to the children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.
Our curriculum tag-line is “A village school with a world view”. Our curriculum celebrates our children’s own context as members of a rural English community whilst preparing them for the experiences and challenges of a much wider world which they will step into as highly successful adults. Class teachers structure their year group curriculum into a topic based structure which maximises learning links and opportunities for our pupils.
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils for the next stages in their lives.
Phonics: The school follows the 'Letters and Sounds' system.
Reading: The school uses a wide selection of reading books using the national Colour Bands.
