The Curriculum

The intent for our curriculum at Alderman Pounder sits alongside the intent for the Flying High Partnership, which we are proud to be part of.


Flying High Partnership Curriculum Intent:

Our FHP curriculum, underpinned by current research, ensures our children will be well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the next stage of their journey. It will promote the demonstration of compassion, integrity and a pursuit of excellence in order for our children to reach their potential. Our enquiry-based approach takes children on a journey of memorable learning through rich and purposeful experiences, culminating in authentic outcomes which leave a legacy on the wider world.


Alderman Pounder Curriculum intent:

Our AP curriculum takes advantage of the diverse school community it serves by celebrating our differences and individuality. Our curriculum is ambitious for all children despite the school being located in the 20% most deprived areas nationally.

We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be happy, investigative and a time for enquiry in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.

Our enquiry based approach, underpinned with a strong PSED element, provide strong foundations for our children to become resilient and passionate learners who can positively impact their world and beyond.

Teaching Methods

A wide range of different teaching methods are used. The children may work independently, in pairs, in groups or as a whole class. Teaching is further enhanced by the presence of teaching assistants who provide support for children on an individual or small group basis. Children engage with a range of different activities each day. This variety provides for all types of learners and abilities ensuring we meet the needs of all children. High quality and creative resources are used to support and motivate the children.
