Back to Year Groups our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 Our school values are taught throughout our curriculum and continuously remind pupils in how to further develop their personal, social and emotional development. Experience is the teacher of all things. Julius Caesar We prioritise the well-being of our pupils and aim to create strong relationships where our pupils can openly discuss their thoughts and feelings and know that they will always be listened to and made to feel safe. As we approach the end of KS1 we focus highly in ensuring that our Year Two pupils have all of the fundamental knowledge and skills to best prepare them for their transition into key stage two. Towards the end of the academic year all pupils within Year Two take part in formalised assessments. Our pupils do not realise they are taking formal assessments and consider this as part of their usual learning. We feel this is the best way to approach the assessments as we have found that children perform best when feeling happy and relaxed. The pupils are assessed formally in the following areas; reading, writing and maths. Parents are invited to meeting at the beginning of the academic year called ‘New to Year Two Parents Meeting’ so that they can be as well informed about all of the information in relation to the academic year. Usually in July, when school reports are sent home, Parents receive information about how their child performed in the assessments. The curriculum in Year Two has been designed with the assessments in mind using the national curriculum objectives. The children continue to learn through a range of topics which re-visit and build upon previous knowledge from Year One to provide the opportunity for our pupils to make links. Children will be exposed frequently to a variety of subjects including Maths, English, Art, Design Technology, Science, Music, PE, History, Religious Studies and Geography. Below you will find curriculum letters and knowledge organisers for each topic. These documents outline what your child will learn each half term. It also outlines what a typical day looks like for our Year Two children and contact information for your child’s class teacher. You will also find a long term plan which outlines which topics your child will be learning about throughout the course of their academic year.

    Curriculum At RFPS, our curriculum is underpinned by the values and knowledge which we are equipping pupils with to succeed in life beyond their primary education. Central to this are the key academic, personal and vocational skills which prepare our pupils to become life-long learners. Go to Subjects our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 We ensure our curriculum celebrates and draws upon the experiences, differing perspectives and interests of our diverse community. We also challenge stereotypes and educate our pupils to respect each other’s cultures and beliefs. We believe in helping engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement. Curriculum Intent Our curriculum challenges children to “aim high”, whatever their starting points, learning essential knowledge and skills which our pupils will acquire sequentially throughout their time at RFPS. Learning from each other and “achieving together” allows our pupils to widen their perspective of the world around us. We believe in introducing children to the very best that has been thought and said and helping engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement. Teaching a broad and balanced curriculum, where all subjects are valued, is fundamental in the development of the whole child. We chose to deliver part of our curriculum through topics which allows our children to explore an area in depth, making links between subjects and provides them with memorable experiences which will stay with them for life. We know that our pupils learn best when they are immersed in their learning, therefore we plan our curriculum using the sequence ‘engage’, ‘develop’, ‘innovate’ and ‘express’. This takes the children on a meaningful learning journey. We provide opportunities for pupils to express their knowledge in a way which allows them to recall, revisit or further investigate areas of interest and as a result we keep learning at the heart of everything that we do. We want all of our pupils to experience and “celebrate their successes”, building their confidence and creating life-long learners. ​ Please click here to go to the subjects. ​ Long Term Plans can be found on Year Group pages, please click here to view them Whole School Curriculum Map – 2021 – 2022 RFPS Curriculum Overview

    School Development Priorities School improvement and development is the key to continual success. We don’t believe that there is ever a time where any person, group or organisation cannot improve further, in any capacity. Go to Key Information our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 Our School Development Plan is written by school leaders who are focused on the areas in which the school needs to improve on over the course of the year. Some of the areas are small steps to achieve something greater in years to come and others are specific areas which need immediate improvement. Greatness comes through continuous improvement not immediate perfection. These school improvement decisions are based on the following: Observations of learning by leaders Discussions/views from parents, pupils, staff, Local Governing Body/Trust and School Improvement Partners Changes in the community/local context New requirements from the Department for Education High quality educational research Analysing school assessment/performance data Below are the School Development Priorities of the school for 2021-2022. They are constantly adapted and developed in line with changing pupils’ needs. We focus on the impact of the development/work to discover our next steps in improvement. If you would like further information regarding our priorities and development, please contact the school office and a member of the Senior Leadership Team will be only too happy to discuss this with you.

    Starting School At Rugby Free Primary School, we believe it is incredibly important that children make a happy and settled start to their school life. Back to Parents our core values kindness red endeavour tint our core values 1/18 We want children to be excited about beginning their school journey with us and parents to feel informed and confident every step of the way. You're off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so... get on your way! Dr Seuss So you can make an informed choice about sending your child to us, we conduct regular tours of our lovely school so you can see for yourself the children at work. Once you have received confirmation of your child’s school place, we will be in touch with you to arrange a home visit. This allows us to meet your child in the environment where they feel most comfortable. It is an opportunity for parents to discuss your child and to ask questions about school life. It is a really valuable first opportunity to begin building the relationship between your child, family and our school, something which is so important to us. During the summer term before your child begins school, we will hold a parent’s information meeting and invite children for a play session in the Reception classroom. This is so helpful for children to visualise the setting and meet staff. You will be able to order specific items of uniform directly from the school during this time in preparation for September. We will also liaise with local nurseries children have attended to gain an understanding of their personalities, attainment and needs. In September, we will plan a staggered start for our Reception children during the first week. Children will attend school for shorter sessions at first, will then stay for lunch building up to a full days by the end of week one. We will let you know the timing of these days. Children do become physically and emotionally tired when they start school. Even when they are used to full days at nursery, the emotional demands of beginning school can be exhausting. We work hard to ensure the children have a settled beginning with us and become used to the setting and its routines as quickly as possible.
