We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning through adopting a highly practical and cross-curricular approach. Our Creative Curriculum aims to deliver a 21st century education that will equip our children with the skills to be independent and responsible citizens.
The National Curriculum comprises of ten subjects four of which are referred to as ‘core’ subjects. These are Mathematics, English, Science, Information & Communications Technology. The remaining six subjects are referred to as ‘foundation’ subjects. These are Humanities, Physical Education, Music, Art, Design Technology and Modern Foreign Languages.
The Creative Curriculum at Bapchild & Tonge CE (Aided) Primary School encompasses all core and foundation subjects and enables us to provide a high standard of teaching and learning.
Through the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy the school is able to deliver a balanced curriculum in Mathematics and English. The remaining subjects are linked in such a way to provide curriculum breadth and balance, and progression and continuity.
Religious Education is taught to all pupils as part of the basic curriculum as required by law. In this Church of England aided school, the governors have decided to adopt the Kent Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, while also including specific Christian teaching appropriate to its status as a Church of England foundation. The syllabus gives priority to teaching about Christianity, while providing opportunities for the study of other principal world religions.
