Curriculum

Foundation subjects are linked to core subjects where appropriate through an English led teaching model. This means that high quality texts are at the centre of the curriuclum at Abbey Park. Once the books were chosen, long term planning ensured key skills from each foundation subject were then mapped to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum.

Mathematics

We use Maths – No Problem! to focus the teaching and learning of maths and ensure that it is of the highest quality. Maths – No Problem! is the only textbook recommended by the Department for Education’s expert panel for schools teaching for mastery. As a result of all this, children both enjoy maths and succeed at maths.

Phonics

At Abbey Park Primary Academy, we put an enormous focus on phonics teaching and learning. Phonics is the beginning of every child’s reading journey. Children cannot read until they know their sounds and this is a stumbling block in every child’s progression across the curriculum. For a child to succeed in any subject, they need to be able to read. We make sure that every child has the opportunity to succeed and love reading by teaching them to decode. We use Read Write Inc. as a scheme to support the teaching and learning of phonics. We use this as it is child-led, fun and engaging and gives each letter meaning.
