The curriculum at Bevington has been designed by our staff for our children. It is fun, engaging, relevant, rigorous, and broad. The key objectives are taken from the 2014 National Curriculum, however our curriculum is unique to Bevington as it has been tailored with our children in mind. In all subjects, there is a relentless focus on high quality teaching, which motivates and excites children, and ensures that they leave Bevington with all the key skills they need to succeed.
Our curriculum is a topic-based curriculum, which is structured into six half-termly topics across a school year. Our topics are chosen by our staff to reflect the children’s interests and to ensure that there is complete curriculum coverage across our school.
We start each topic with an engaging and exciting hook experience. This is an immersive experience which launches the topic and motivates the children. Examples could be a surprise visitor, meal, video, role play etc. There is an expectation that one trip each term will take place linked to the topic. Artefacts and displays in the class will reflect the topic and visitors and workshops are regularly booked to enhance the learning experience.
History, Geography, Art, DT and Music are taught entirely through our topics. English, Science and Computing are linked to our topic if appropriate and relevant. Maths, Grammar, PSHE, MFL, and PE are taught discreetly.
