Curriculum Provision

At Alma we aim to provide a balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all our pupils.  Our pupils have the opportunity to experience all the areas of the National Curriculum 2014.

The pupils in our Nursery and Reception classes experience all areas of ‘Development Matters’.   The pupils in Years 1-6 experience all areas of the National Curriculum.  Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning. Planning is flexible in order to engage pupils in their learning.

Learning is enriched through first hand and practical experiences.  Educational visits and visitors into school are used to broaden the pupils’ understanding of what is being taught. Pupils learn in many different ways; in small groups, independently, outdoors, through play, art, music, dance, through a variety of media and sources. 

At Alma we promote the teaching of key skills for learning and values, equipping our pupils for the world and the community they will grow up in.  Learning opportunities are designed to promote these values and skills and the development of them. 

Pupils’ learning is assessed regularly, so that support and challenge is given where appropriate.
