At The Milford Academy our children are at the heart of our curriculum. We offer a curriculum that is broad and balanced and appropriate to the pupils’ ages, abilities and aptitudes regardless of gender, ethnicity and specific needs. Our Milford Values are embedded in our curriculum. Our Milford Values are:
M – Motivated
I – Independent
F – Forward Thinking
O – Outstanding
R – Respect
D – Determined
Our wider curriculum is taught by using a two-year rolling programme. Below is a plan showing the topics we cover in each key stage. This year we are working from Programme B.
Here is our Rolling Programme B:
Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) :
Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4):
Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6):
Here is the link to our Rolling Programme A – this will be covered in 2020/2021: click here
We adopt a cross-curricular approach that develops children’s knowledge, skills and understanding whilst keeping them motivated. Our topics are linked to our English, Art, ICT, D&T and Music where possible. At the beginning of each topic, the teacher will elicit the current knowledge of the children and this will then be used at the end of the topic to show progression.
Some areas of the curriculum are further developed through our after school clubs.
Our curriculum includes activities that are provided for the children to enrich their experiences and promote personal growth and development. At The Milford Academy we want the children to grow into positive, conscientious people who can take responsibility for developing their knowledge and skills to achieve their true and full potential. We provide an educational curriculum that is well-structured, positive and academically challenging for all pupils.
