Curriculum

At Ashbrook Junior School, we are ambitious about what pupils can achieve. Our curriculum is written to match this ambition, ensuring pupils know and can do more, ready for the next stage of their education. We believe that knowledgeable pupils are confident pupils. Therefore, we aim to ensure that our pupils leave Ashbrook Junior School believing they can achieve what they put their mind to and feeling like they belong in any room.

 

To support pupils in being ready for the end of their time at Ashbrook Junior School, subjects are taught discretely. This ensures that pupils have a secure understanding of each subject and the disciplinary knowledge as well as providing the opportunity to celebrate each individual subject. However, links between subjects are made where these are purposeful to support pupils in understanding the links between different units and themes.

 

Our curriculum and any developments are built on five key elements:

 

  • Consistency
  • Progression and Cohesion
  • Vocabulary
  • Mastery and Depth
  • Subject Knowledge

 

Reading plays an essential role within the curriculum at Ashbrook Junior School. As such, our curriculum is established so that pupils can develop their reading fluency and comprehension across a range of subjects. Booklets have been established in a variety of subjects to provide written texts that pupils can access, with reading, discussion and activities linking back to these texts. We believe this is important in supporting pupils to be ready for the next stage of their education where pupils will be challenged to read a variety of texts across the day as they move through the secondary school day.
