Our Curriculum Intent
At Portsdown we follow the National Curriculum which acts as an introduction to the essential knowledge and skills that the children of Portsdown need to be educated citizens. It introduces them to the best that has been thought and said, and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement. Our curriculum is carefully sequenced so that all children can build on their knowledge, skills and develop their vocabulary throughout their time at Portsdown.
As a school, we aim to widen and enrich their life experiences beyond their starting points by providing a range of trips, visits and experiences throughout their time at Portsdown. We believe that being able to read with confidence and developing a love of reading is vital to our children if they are to succeed in the future. This is why reading is at the heart of our curriculum.
