At Constantine we have an exciting topic-based curriculum however all topics cover learning objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum. Autumn and Spring topics are for a particular class and Summer are for whole school. Literacy is taught through the topics. Maths, RE, PE and PSHE tend to stand alone. We have a rolling programme for ICT and PSHE to ensure key areas are covered – however these areas are also linked to the topics taught. British Values are also incorporated into various aspects of our learning.
We believe all of our learning is real and relevant. In many cases the children themselves have had input into the choice of topics offered. Our curriculum ensures progression in skills and also links to being healthy and safe; enjoyment of study; social and economic wellbeing and making a positive contribution to society. We offer a wide variety of trips and visitors to excite and motivate the learners.
Parents and carers can find out more details about the topics from our Curricular Newsletters handed out at the start of each topic. We welcome any input if you have particular links or areas of expertise to enhance the learning. Parents are welcome to come into school and see detailed topic plans also linked below.
We welcome all pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. We include them in all areas of Constantine School life, whilst making special provision for individuals where appropriate. All staff aim to develop every child’s potential as far as possible.
