Curriculum Rationale

We, the staff at Jacksdale Primary & Nursery School, believe that
all children deserve success in every form.  In order to ensure
that our pupils have ongoing, sustainable opportunities to achieve
this success, we have built a curriculum which develops the whole person.  Our curriculum strives to include (but is not limited by)
the necessary knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes which will drive their motivation for learning.  It is lively and engaging
for all ages whilst remaining flexible and responsive to the pupil’s needs and interests.
Every member of staff involved with the children at Jacksdale Primary & Nursery School has contributed to the curriculum planning we have devised in order to achieve the vision we hold for our pupils.
Year 1 – annual cycle due to single year group classes
Year 2 – annual cycle due to single year group classes
Key Stage 2 – annual cycle to be implemented in 2023-2024.  Previously a 2 year cycle was implemented to allow for mixed year group classes in year 3 and 4, year 5 and 6




In order to support & develop our spelling, reading and writing, we use the Read, Write, Inc. phonics programme - we also use the Spelling Shed programme from year 2-6.


We have adopted and adapted the White Rose maths programme to develop the pupil's knowledge and skills in maths.
