Pupils  »  Curriculum

At Park PRU we offer a broad and enriched curriculum which follows the new National Curriculum. 
The curriculum offer is the vehicle by which our children gain knowledge.  Children at the PRU will be provided with a curriculum that is progressive and secures knowledge and skills through a thematic model that narrows gaps and ensures children acquire fundamental basics in order for them to achieve and progress.  All our teachers have jointly planned the curriculum to ensure it is logically sequenced to support the children's development of knowledge.  Subjects have strong curricular links that reinforce new skills the children receive in different parts of the curriculum.  "Children strengthen their understanding of the world they live in if it is 'joined up' and 'connected'." 
"Children learn from repeated activites that are cross curricular. 
Repetition is effective for improving long term memory."
(Bradley Busch - Registered Psychologist).
The curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced to provide challenge for every child to enable them to develop and succeed both academically and socially and prepare them for life beyond school.   
  We ensure that all basic skills within Maths and English are targeted as these are often areas in learning that need developing before others can be addressed.

We use Read, Write, Inc to support our phonics delivery across school with any pupils who require it.  
We also use the Get Writing scheme to help enthuse and engage our pupils in their writing. 

Everything we do is in the best interests of our children, first and foremost.  

If you require any information about a specific curriculum area, scheme of work or any of the many activities we have throughout the academic year please contact us at office@primarypru.bradford.sch.uk.
