First Federation Trust
Our Curriculum Vision
To achieve our mission, Brixington's curriculum is designed to celebrate the school's local context and compliment our children's home experiences. A rich and varied diet of activities enrich schemes of learning that build pupils' knowledge and skills, sequentially.
Good citizens are people who show friendship, respect, honesty, endeavour and sportsmanship. These are our chosen values and our basis for praise and reward.
Learners who achieve their very best enjoy reading and have very secure understanding of English and maths, but are also knowledgeable about other key areas and have skills that are transferable and well-developed.
In addition, our community have a particular enthusiasm to encourage learners to really contribute to their local community and to celebrate everything that is special about where we live: seafront, countryside and a busy town!
Please see Year Group Planning documents below, showing the subject content for this year. Should you require any further information about your child's learning and the curriculum they will be taught, please do not hesitate to contact their class teacher, Unit Leader or the Head of Teaching and Learning.
You can find out more about our curriculum by looking at the overviews for each subject below. You can also submit questions to email@example.com, which will be answered by our curriculum leaders.
The school has recently moved to the Sounds Write phonics scheme, to ensure all of our learners develop the strongest phonics ability for reading and writing. The following approaches to learning are under review to reflect this.

Our Curriculum Plans for each Subject
The following plans offer an overview for how knowledge is acquired throughout the school in each subject. Key curricular goals ensure the National Curriculum is covered and are built upon year after year.
In accordance with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014, and in the pursuit of the school's mission for all pupils, the learning in each subject is provided for all pupils in the school, including those with special educational needs. Lesson planning by teachers and subject leaders ensures that learning is accessible for all: agile, adaptive approaches to learning allow all learners to focus upon the most important small steps in each lesson.
Occasionally, an individualised approach to the curriculum is designed in order to be fully inclusive of a child's needs and abilities.
