Learning together to be the best that we can be!

Curriculum

Our Intent

At Powerstock we provide an exciting set of learning experiences which gives all our children the essential knowledge and the skills for learning and ultimately working in our constantly changing 21st century.  The curriculum is delivered in a environment of whole school active wellbeing, where healthy choices are at the heart of our “ready for learning” culture.

The core subjects of Mathematics and English are taught in the mornings, but are creatively linked to all the other subjects we teach through our termly topics.  Our teaching staff is committed, knowledgeable and committed to enabling the best outcomes for each child.

Please see Intent, Implementation and impact statements for each subject below:

Class structure

We have three mixed year group classes in our small school:

Burton class (Rec, Y1 and Y2) with Mrs Oxenbury and Mrs Greenham
Cogden class (Y3 and Y4) with Mrs Seal and Mrs Greenham
Seatown class (Y5 and Y6) with Mrs Cleden

Some children are often taught outside their ‘home’ class as we prefer to teach to a child’s ability rather than simply their chronological age. All classes have less than 25 pupils.
