Christ the King offers an exciting, engaging, broad and balanced curriculum which ensures that all children are able to acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills and take part in many different experiences. Underpinning our curriculum is our commitment to ensuring that every child acquires the basic skills necessary to become a successful learner while also developing a love of reading. We ensure that our children are exposed to a range of opportunities which support their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.
We follow the Learning Challenge approach to our curriculum. Our children are taught through interesting topics which revolve around a big question every term. Each week, smaller questions are explored to help discover more about the overarching topic. This approach spans the whole curriculum but ensures that the basics of reading, writing and mathematics are acquired and applied in different contexts. The documents below outline the main topics that the children cover in each year group. Details about the topics taught can be found in our year group parent booklets which are sent home half-termly.
In RE we follow the ‘Come and See’ programme recommended by Nottingham Diocese. Newsletters are sent home every term to parents outlining the RE topics and how children can be supported at home.
The school curriculum reflects the requirements to provide a broad and balanced curriculum as per the Academies Act 2010, and the National Curriculum programmes of study which we have chosen to follow.
It also reflects requirements for inclusion and equality as set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014 and Equality Act 2010, and refers to curriculum-related expectations of governing boards set out in the Department for Education’s Governance Handbook.
Further information on how we achieve this can be found in our statement of equality information and objectives, and in our SEND policy and information report.
