A Curriculum overview
The South Hams Hub is committed to providing children with a curriculum that is innovative and motivating; a curriculum that is real and relevant to the child’s life, ensuring that we make the best use of the incredible natural environment around us. Our Acadmies are based in fantastic locations: West Alvington, where the children benefit from frequent visits to West Alvington woods; Thurlestone, which is located just minutes from the beach, so children are often walking down to the sea shore and Charleton, which is located just minutes from Charleton Marshes, a beautiful resource for children to enjoy.
Our curriculum conforms to the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. However, it is organised thematically as children enjoy being able to link their learning to a motivating and exciting topic. Topic headings are very general, allowing teachers to use their creativity and imagination to develop the best learning environment for their children.
The 2-year cycle of Curriculum Maps can be found below. These need to be read in conjunction with the National Curriculum requirements, which is divided into year groups. If you have any questions regarding the curriculum, please speak to your class teacher – they will be happy to help
