School Curriculum

We have designed our curriculum in consultation with pupils, parents, staff and governors. The curriculum journey at Petersfield starts the minute the pupils walk through our school gates and continues throughout the entire day.

Our Vision, Intent, Implementation and Impact statements declare our aspirations for our pupils, along with our Petersfield Pledge.

Our aim continues to be to ensure that our children leave our school ready for the next stage of their educational career and having the skills and values to equip them for life.

We continue to revise our curriculum offer through “evolution”, rather than a “revolution”, mapping out the key knowledge we plan for our pupils to learn.

We have revised and improved our skills progression for all foundation subjects so that different expectations for each year group are explicitly clear. Subject leaders will monitor the provision in these areas. Where possible, cross curricular links are being made and subjects will have a 'cold task' at the beginning of each topic, culminating in a “hot write” or assessment opportunity to show the progression of skills and knowledge acquired over the topic. We have also focused on explicitly identifying and teaching the vocabulary needed for the subject areas and using our beautiful school grounds as much as possible, where relevant.

We are delighted to have recently achieved the Silver Artsmark. We strongly believe the arts provide a foundation for learning to enable children to achieve their full potential. We firmly believe that children of all abilities learn best when they are inspired and their creativity can take them in many directions! We have reviewed our programme of extra events and kept those which make a significant contribution to the wider needs of the school. We now have more extra-curricular clubs and activities before school, during lunchtimes and after school to give our pupils a wider range of learning opportunities. These include reading club, code club, dance club and sports clubs. We also actively encourage our wider community to come into school to share their expertise and talents with the pupils, for example through careers week, the Lent challenge and historical digs.
