School Curriculum 

At Hackleton, our distinctive Christian vision underpins our aspirations to empower children with the knowledge they are entitled to in order to make sense of the world and also prepare them for the future. Powerful knowledge opens doors! This will inspire children to live out our Christian values and to strive for excellence in all that they do in order to celebrate life in all its fullness.

Our curriculum aims to provide a full sequence of learning across the range of subjects. Each year group has its own personalised curriculum where specific knowledge, concepts and subject specific vocabulary has been identified and is taught. As children move through the school, these are revisited in a deliberate and planned way to create a progressive model, where children are able to make connections with things they have previously been taught. These building blocks supply the means for children to ask better questions, seek their own answers and gain deeper insights than they had before. In this way they are developing the skills of critical thinking with regards to analysis, synthesis and evaluation at higher levels.

For more information, please see the detailed curriculum maps available in the sidebar to this page.

Pupil Premium

Pupil premium was introduced in by the Coalition Government in April 2011. It is additional funding on top of the existing school budget provided to schools and is allocated to pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years ( known as Ever 6 FSM) and those who have been looked after (by a local authority) for more than six months. The Service Premium was also introduced for children whose parent(s) are, or have since 2011, served in the armed forces. The aim of the Pupil Premium is to raise the attainment of disadvantage pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Please see the sidebar for a full report on our access to and use/benefits from the use of Pupil Premium.

Sports Premium funding

Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level. More often than not when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and it can lead to a less healthy lifestyle.

The school's statement related to Sports Premium funding can be found in the sidebar of the page.
