Curriculum Delivery at Market Deeping Community Primary School
The curriculum is everything our children experience in school. It is based on the National Curriculum and covers the required framework this sets out and more. We aim for children to develop skills and knowledge, to be able to do more and know more from the activities and lessons they undertake. Our INTENT is what we are trying to achieve through our curriculum and is set out in our subject overviews and progression documents and our Curriculum Intent documents plus the 'Topic Schemas' that ensure parents understand what we are covering each half term. The IMPLEMENTATION is how we deliver our curriculum and the IMPACT is the difference our curriculum is making. The flow chart below shows how our documentation is linked. Our curriculum is always developing and improving and will respond to the needs of our pupils and our community so that we make the most of opportunities for children as they arise. The Topic Schemas follow and give an overview of each half term’s curriculum coverage.

Developing our Curriculum
In May 2019 we surveyed our parents about what they would like to see in the school's curriculum. The full results are downloadable here....

What academic facts should children know?
What school trips should they go on?

As they live in the Deepings area they should be aware of their local community. What does this mean for your family? Where should they visit? What should they know?
We are keen to raise children’s understanding of future jobs and careers and community involvement. If you can help with this or know someone that can please let us know. Ideally they would be able to come in and talk about their job or voluntary work…
Following OFSTED Monitoring Inspections in March and May 2021 we have worked to improve our curriculum delivery and structures. Please have a look through the following presentation that details our Key Drivers and how the curriculum is delivered in school.
Behind the Half-Termly Overviews it a number of documents. The class teachers use the Curriculum Framework documents for medium term plans. These include the Learning Intentions for each half term - what we want children to know in each session and the skills we want them to develop.
Curriculum leaders oversee the Coverage Frameworks and the Subject Progression documents. The latter are the basis of the half-termly Curriculum Intent document.
Each subject has an action plan for the academic year which subject leads monitor.
