Our Curriculum

At The Ferns we are committed to meeting the requirements of the new primary curriculum and we continue to strive towards all pupils reaching their full potential by the time they reach Year Six.
We have updated our schemes of work to reflect the content and challenge of the new curriculum, as well as keeping many of the features of our current curriculum, which as a school we are very proud of. Teachers will continue to receive training in the key areas of curriculum change. We will also use a range of external providers to enhance our provision

As ever, our curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners, will be underpinned by our school values and provide an inspiring, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable curriculum for all children.
We will continue to keep parents informed about the content of the curriculum through newsletters and the school website.

Over the coming year will we continue to adapt our current assessment procedures to meet the assessment requirements of the new curriculum and in response to future government publications relating to these. Over the course of the next year you will continue to be informed of your child's progress through parents' evenings, reports and targets and you are always welcome to arrange an appointment with the class teacher to address any concerns.


As a school we are proud of curriculum provision and continually strive to improve it through monitoring and evaluation. We are excited to launch the new curriculum and we hope you will enjoy it your child.


Curriculum Jigsaws
At The Ferns Primary Academy, our whole school curriculum branches from our use of quality texts and is designed to inspire and engage our children. The book, studied by each year group during each term, is the overarching theme for the topics in each subject area. All of our units of work are fully referenced to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum Framework and have a title that is in the form of a question in order to promote enquiry based learning.
