At Ferry Lane Primary School we aim to deliver a curriculum that is broad, balanced and based on developing all pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding across a range of subjects. We are determined that all children succeed and reach high standards and believe in a rich curriculum that is engaging for all.
Reading, Writing and Maths are at the heart of our curriculum and take up the larger part of teaching time. RE and PSHE are taught using the Local Authority schemes of work. Modern Languages are taught in KS2. All other subjects; History, Geography, Music, Art, Design Technology, Science and PE are taught through an integrated topic approach.
Ferry Lane Primary is striving for the Gold Award Primary Science Quality Mark which is a prestigious award that recognises outstanding delivery of science across a school. Having held a number of events over the past year, and as well as delivering outstanding teaching and learning through science curriculum, we are well on track to achieve this. All staff, in conjunction with the science leader, work hard to ensure pupils are excited in their science learning, that curiosity is sparked and enquiry skills are developed. Science has been at the forefront of our priorities and we have adopted a whole-school approach to ensure not only that the profile of science is elevated, but that we are using innovative ways to capture pupils’ enthusiasm and passion in the subject.
Our portfolio submission for the PSQM encapsulates the rigorous dedication of the school in heightening the profile of science and improving learning experiences for all pupils, honing a life-long zest for learning and enquiry.
