Our Learning

Other Subjects

 
We are committed to providing a stimulating curriculum which is broad and 
balanced.  We follow the guidance provided by the Early Years Foundation Stage 
(EYFS) Framework for children in Nursery and Reception.  We implement the 
Statutory Programmes of Study stipulated in the National Curriculum for Key 
Stages 1 and 2.  More details in subsequent sections. 
We use a wide range of teaching methods at Starks Field depending on how old 
the children are and how they can learn best. Our staff are fully trained and 
qualified and they undergo training to keep them up to date with the latest ideas 
on teaching and learning. 
Our curriculum is strongly influenced by our Learning ValueOUR CURRICULUM

Religious Education is taught in line with the Enfield Agreed Syllabus.

Physical Education - we use Enfield schemes of work. Provision is further enhanced by a range of sports clubs which take place during the day or after school.  Starks Field Primary is as committed to PE as any other area of the school Curriculum with every class from Year 1 to Year 6 taking part in two hours of sport each week. Nursery and reception are also allocated hall time to explore the gym equipment.

At KS1 we employ a qualified Sports Coach who delivers a variety such as Write Dance and the Swing Hang Climb Club.  The purpose of these is to focus on pupils who need extra assistance and support in the development of their fundamental movement skills, gross and fine motor skills.

At KS2 we are delighted to have a partnership with the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation who provide lessons to our Year 5 and 6 pupils. In addition, our class teachers deliver safe and inclusive lessons to classes which look to focus on a number of sports. These include football, tag rugby, uni-hockey, netball, basketball, tennis, cricket, athletics, dance and gymnastics. We also understand both the health and safety benefits of swimming so our Year 4 class attend weekly swimming lessons at a local pool. It is our aim at Starks Field, that by the time our pupils move on to Secondary education, they have developed the physical, social and psychological skills required by young sportspeople.

As well as timetabled PE lessons, there are various clubs that are run before and after school. These include our after school activity, netball, rounders, tag rugby and football clubs which provide additional coaching for pupils with a keen interest to develop their skills. We also offer an early morning running club before the start of the day two days a week.

 

Music is taught by the class teacher.  All children in Year 3 learn to play the recorder by a specialist teacher.

 

Spanish is taught in Key Stage 2 by a specialist teacher.

 

We endeavour to provide a wide range of visits to enhance and enrich the curriculum as well as bringing in storytellers, theatre workshops and authors. Theme weeks, such as Book Week and Science Week, provide opportunities for the school to be immersed in a subject or aspect.

Throughout the curriculum, opportunities to celebrate the rich diversity of the school are exploited. Tolerance and respect are encouraged within the context of promoting fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty.
