In response to the new 2014 curriculum changes, Blackpool Primary School has enriched the existing plans to ensure creative and exciting learning opportunities across all Key Stages and for all pupils.
Learners are immersed in an innovative and dynamic thematic approach through topic led plans. Children are encouraged to contribute their ideas and questions, in order to take their enquiry in a direction which will engage and challenge their thinking and understanding; thus developing Leaders of Learning.
The overarching aim of the forward thinking curriculum is to equip students with the necessary skills to adapt to an ever changing 21st century world.
As a Church of England Primary School, Blackpool has a set of distinctive values which underpin and are integral to the ethos of the school and the wider community.
Blackpool C of E Primary School Curriculum Drivers; Communication, Enterprise, My Place In The World, Creativity and Christian Values.
At Blackpool C E School we follow the Letters and Sounds programme which we supplement with resources from other schemes. Children are grouped in EYFS, Year 1 and 2 according to the area of Letters and Sounds which they are learning. These groups are fluid and flexible according to children’s progress and need. Children’s progress is tracked regularly and lessons are personalised to meet the needs of all learners.
At Blackpool C E School, reading books are banded according to their content. Our primary reading scheme is Pearson Bug Club, but we other reading schemes are used alongside this. Pupils are taught reading skills during Guided Reading lessons, Phonics lessons and through cross-curricular activities. Pupils’ book band levels are checked regularly to ensure they are at the correct level.
