Curriculum

The primary curriculum is designed to nurture the child in all dimensions of his or her life—spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical.

Our School Curriculum Map introduces our Curriculum Intent and a whole school overview of the curriculum.

The National Curriculum framework document can be viewed below along with our Curriculum Design for Balfour.

Blended learning

What is blended learning?

Blended learning is an approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional class-based classroom methods. It allows children to learn from home and keep in line with their peers.

This plan will be applied in the following instances:

1. An individual is self-isolating because of a suspected case or positive test within the household;

2. A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble;

3. A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus

The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools.

The learning that will be provided will be high quality, safe and will align as closely as possible with in-school provision.

Teachers will plan for blended learning alongside their in-class plans to ensure pupils are able to master the curriculum and make progress.
