The pupils are split into different stages of learning throughout the school and sometimes these can be confusing as they have different names.
The first stage of learning is called Early Years Foundation Stage and this covers a child from age 0 to age 5. Children in our Nursery and in our Reception classes are part of EYFS.
The second stage of learning is called Key Stage 1 and covers children from age 5 to 7. These are Years 1 and 2 in school and used to be called the Infants.
The final stage in a Primary School is called Key Stage 2 and covers children from age 7 to 11. This is sometimes referred to as the Juniors and consists of Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The school seeks to achieve these aims by organizing its curriculum in such a way that it is relevant to the needs of all its children. Through a cross-curricular approach and creative approach we provide exciting learning experiences that stimulate the mind and fire the children’s imaginations. The core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT are given high priority throughout the themes/topics that are being studied.
Children are taught individually, in small groups and in large class groups, depending on the nature of the subject and their own varying needs. We believe that a skills based curriculum is important and this forms the basis for the work that the children do in school and at home.
We encourage all children to present all their work to a high standard – as Somerset Maugham said “If you refuse to accept anything but the best in life, you very often get it.”
Although we follow the National Curriculum we believe that a Primary School Curriculum is so much more than that and hopefully, by browsing our school website, you will get a flavour of all that we offer at Trumacar Primary School.
The National Curriculum is explained below.
The EYFS is based on Seven Areas of Learning which are:
1. Personal. Social and Emotional Development;
2. Physical Development
3. Communication and Language
4. English (sometimes called Literacy)
6. Understanding of the World
7. Expressive Arts and Design
In the juniors we also use these Areas of Learning and then split them into other subject headings.
These areas are:
* Science, Technology and Computing
* Understanding the World (including RE, History and Geography)
* Expressive Arts (including Art, Drama, Music and PE)
* Values (including SEAL and Personal, Social, Health Education)
Ideas, Concerns and Complaints
We welcome parents views at all times in school and encourage parents to use Parent View. We always prefer that parents come in and talk to us about any concerns or issues they may have. However, should you wish to make a complaint about the school then we have a clear Complaints Procedure which is available on the School Policies webpage.
Pupil Care, Welfare and Attendance
Trumacar is a very caring school and the children’s care and welfare is our top priority—if the children do not feel happy and safe in school then they will not learn.
