Whole School Overview

At Allenby Primary School we follow the National Curriculum and strive to enrich the curriculum wherever possible. Our curriculum is underpinned by our school ethos and values and also three key threads;

The Role of Women throughout history and across the world

The role of Leadership and Democracy throughout history and across the world

Change Makers and social action, inspiring our pupils by seeing what has been done and what is still to do

Our curriculum is importantly built on our Rights Respecting School Charter and the school values. We created both of these important drivers following consultation with our children, families, governors and staff, co-constructing them to ensure we had a clear and joint vision for our children, long after they leave us hear at Allenby. We enrich the National Curriculum with a wide range of trips, practical worships, visiting speakers, careers days and visits to places of worship.

Our school is a small, caring community, where individuals are valued and achieve confidence through success. Children and adults are encouraged to belong to, learn and develop in an inclusive and positive learning environment. Our actions impact on others – ‘what we do matters’ – so in learning, attitudes, behaviour and aspirations we strive to make a difference for the better. This is based on our core values for character and learning and have been developed in light of our Rights Respecting School Charter;

Our children are taught in classes, small groups or individually, according to their needs, within the framework of the National Curriculum. We follow a spiral curriculum pairing topics in EYFS, KS 1, LKS2 and UKS2. A variety of teaching styles are used in school, based on good practice, and teachers continually reflect on their teaching. All teachers take part in action research projects within an area of school need and/or to develop their own pedagogy and that of others. These projects range from fluency in arithmetic, whole class colourful semantics to aid early writing to maths journaling and gap analysis and data usage. We are always seeking to innovate our teaching and learning and this approach is not just for our children but also that of our staff and families alike. We do this to maintain our high standards and provide the best in primary school education for our whole community.
