Trull CE VA Primary School Curriculum Statement
At Trull Church of England VA Primary School, .
We want children to be life-long learners, who are excited by challenge and gain joy from acquiring new skills and knowledge. At Trull CE VA Primary School we value every member of our community as a unique child of God and seek to demonstrate his love through our words and actions. These values underpin our school curriculum. We want to equip children for the future who are able to deal with the challenges of life and to be global citizens living in an interconnected world. We want our children to be outstanding in all areas and in all arenas, and are constantly reviewing our curriculum to ensure it provides the motivation, the skills, and the level of challenge to achieve this aim.
The Trull CE VA Primary School curriculum is designed to help pupils:
In our school this is interpreted as delivering a curriculum to our children that is motivating, exciting, real and relevant to their own lives and experiences. The curriculum ensures progression and challenge throughout the school within each subject area, with teachers developing knowledge and skills that build upon previous learning and knowledge.
Our units of work are carefully designed to develop a child’s level of knowledge and skill day by day, week by week, year on year and it is constantly reviewed and evaluated. It is this relentless drive for excellence and our partnership with parents that that promotes outstanding achievement.

Your child's class page will also have more information on it and there are also many photographs on each of the class pages showcasing the work that goes on.
PHONICS TEACHING AT TRULL
We are currently reviewing Phonics at Trull School. We have always prided ourselves on our rigorous approach to phonics and the ability of the children to reach the standards required at the end of Year 1. We are so passionate, that when we purchased a validated Scheme, upon review of all the resources that came with it, we found it to be incorrect in the order that it taught the grapheme/phoneme correspondences. We are therefore still looking and reviewing. We are awaiting one scheme to be released in particular, as their approach was similar to ours and they had the same high expectations we have.
