Curriculum Overview

The Flushing Curriculum
Our curriculum is firmly rooted in the National Curriculum which underpins all learning in school and 
we then used the Inspire planning tools and units to construct our own topic cycles for each class. The cycles and plans were seen as a guiding core ensuring that there was continuity and progression throughout the school, without losing the teacher's ability to be creative in view of the children's needs, interests and the local environment they live in.

Wherever possible we aim to link subjects to each topic, but only if the links are strong and meaningful.

In September 2023 the school switched to a new provision.  The composition of the classes changed to the following:

Starfish > Year R & 1

Seals > Year 2, 3 & 4

Dolphins > Year 4, 5 & 6

The change of classes means the school has changed its curriculum offer in response to the pupil's needs.

The school's curriculum from intent to implementation to impact is explained in the main document below.

We also develop a wide range of skills and experiences through annual events such as;

  • Access to PE Festivals and competitions across all year groups (through the Penryn Partnership).
  • Residential for Years 5 and 6 on a cycle that includes camping and other outdoor adventurous activities.
  • Swimming lessons for all the children (5.5 hours per year).
  • Public performances that includes a nativity, extended musical production and regular church services.
  • Fund raising for local/national charities and community groups.
  • Visitors and workshops that reflect the diverse nature of British society.
  • Regular trips linked to class topics.
