Curriculum Overview

We have designed our curriculum at Park Academy to meet all of the national requirements of the Foundation Stage Curriculum and National Curriculum and fundamentally, the needs of our pupils.

From the moment pupils enter their Foundation stage, we work to support them with the key skills they need in order to succeed: Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World, Expressive Arts and Design. We do this with a focus on quality, first hand experiences and our prioritization of early reading and oracy.

In Key Stages One and Two, we offer an enriched curriculum based on the National Curriculum requirements and at the same time teach the children the skills to equip them for life, work and social responsibility as future adults.

In order to do this, we use a thematic approach, where links between subject areas are exploited to promote the curriculum in stimulating and exciting ways. Staff work tirelessly to provide work that is suitably differentiated to meet the needs of every individual.

Ultimately, our children’s learning experiences extend beyond the school day and extensive enrichment opportunities such as after-school clubs, trips and visitors (including a residential visit) are utilised to foster an overall love of learning.

Here at Park Academy, we are privileged to serve a diverse community which celebrates differences. Through our teaching, we aim for all pupils to make good progress and achieve their very best.
