Alexandra Primary School

Alexandra Primary School
Foundation subjects

Foundation subjects supplement the core learning in English, Maths and Science to provide a rounded, balanced education.

The curriculum that we have devised at Alexandra Primary School is broad, balanced and ambitious. We have thought about how children learn and the personal development of learners, considered the knowledge, understanding and skills children need to learn and use. We have developed a curriculum that also reflects our community. The school’s curriculum promotes the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and physical development of pupils at the school and of society and prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and expectations of later life.  

We are committed to making sure our curriculum is relevant and inspiring and accessible to all our learners. 

Subjects are taught through themes with common learning links.   Learning often starts or is consolidated with memorable first hand experiences.  We also try and establish what the children already know and use knowledge organisers to help identify key learning and to help make links with other subjects. Transferable skills are developed through links to English, Maths and Science amongst other subjects.
