Primary - Curriculum Statement
Key Stag 1 & 2
Teaching and learning at Bournville Primary Provision is based on the New National Curriculum 2014 for Years 1 to 6 and the Statutory Framework for our Nursery and Reception children. Across the school, teachers work to ensure the curriculum is rich, varied and meets all of the children's needs. Please also refer to Birmingham Council's Curriculum Statement.
At Bournville Primary Provision pupils follow the new National Curriculum for English which is a statutory requirement. The curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for children in Years 1 to 6. In Key Stage Two, there are strong links with the Secondary Provision for drama lessons in line with the English National Curriculum.
At Bournville Primary Provision, pupils follow the programme ‘Singapore Maths’. This is aligned to the National Curriculum. Children are taught maths using a Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) approach which means they experience maths in a practical context, where they have a variety of opportunities to solve problems using practical equipment. This ensures they develop a deep understanding of key mathematical concepts from an early age. Problem solving and reasoning is at the centre of children’s learning enabling them to understand how to solve and reason mathematically.

At Bournville Primary Provision, pupils follow the programme ‘Science Bug’. This is aligned to the National Curriculum. Alongside the scientific subject knowledge, the children are taught to ‘work scientifically’; developing skills such as prediction, recording results and making conclusions. Every year at Bournville, the children participate in a “Science Fair” where pupils work independently on their own project at home and bring in to be judged by the Secondary Science Faculty.
