At Kilburn Grange School, we provide a creative and immersive that is brought to life through memorable experiences such as educational visits, visitors to the school and special events. Each half-term or term, children learn about a new topic that is linked to a Humanities or Science theme. The children also explore a range of diverse, high-quality literature in reading and writing lessons linked to this topic. As much as possible, we plan for cross-curricular learning whereby the learning across various subjects is linked to this overarching topic. This also includes educational visits and visitors. However, some subjects such as Mathematics, Computing, Music and Spanish are taught discretely. You can find our Whole School Curriculum Overview here.
The curriculum at our school is broad and balanced, providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds to succeed. From Reception to Year 6 in Key Stage 2, Kilburn Grange School offers a curriculum suitable for our inclusive intake that meets the needs of all pupils and leads to high standards of academic and personal achievement. This is based on the Early Years and Foundation Stage Statutory Framework and Development Matters in Reception and the National Curriculum in Key Stage 1 and 2. Our curriculum aims to equip each child with the appropriate knowledge and skills to develop their own academic potential, personal and social values in preparation for life in the evolving British society. We teach Religious Education, Personal Social Health and Economic education, as well as Picture News sessions to discuss the local, national and global current events happening at that time. We also offer a range of exciting extra-curricular activities. We want children to develop a love of learning that goes beyond the scope of the curriculum and prepares them for their future adult lives, whatever they may be.

Our non-teaching SENDCo does not have a full-time teaching responsibility to enable her to ensure that the requirements of the SEN Code of Practice are met. She works with teachers and a team of classroom assistants to support pupils with specific learning needs so they can participate fully, learn and succeed. When they leave us at the end of Year 6, pupils will have received an excellent education preparing them for their secondary school of choice, be it in the maintained or private sect.
