At Stower Provost we teach the National Curriculum which places high expectations on standards in English, Maths and Computing. Our mornings are timetabled for reading, phonics, writing and maths activities and central to our approach and success in developing skills, knowledge and understanding and above all, excellence and enjoyment in learning, is our Curriculum.
In recent years we have redeveloped our curriculum so that it reflects our school and the experiences of our children. Underpinning all our decisions are the four curriculum drivers, (Knowledge, Skills, Community and Self) with each half term’s work aiming to provide a balance of all four. Each subject has a curriculum statement which highlights how the subject is taught across the school, with each member of the teaching staff having responsibility for leading at least one subject and monitoring the children’s progress across the school.
Children have the opportunity to direct the content of their learning from discussion sessions at the beginning of each theme. When appropriate, we adopt a cross curricular approach to other subjects – Science, History, Geography, Computing, Music, Art, PE, PSHE and Design Technology. French is taught discretely from Year 2 onwards and we teach RE each week.
Each term we hold an open afternoon to celebrate our work across the Curriculum and to display the fantastic learning that has happened in school and supported by home learning. This Creative Curriculum Showcase, with refreshments provided by the PTFA, is always very well attended by family and friends.

The Early Years follows its own planning, which links in with our curriculum drivers and, where relevant, with the learning in Key Stage 1.
