ENGLISH

MATHS– This is taught daily as a defined subject and in a cross-curricular way across the whole week.

SCIENCE – This is taught once a week.

P.S.H.E. – This is taught as a ‘subject’ once a week, but Personal, Social Health Education is a strong strand that runs across the curriculum throughout the day – assemblies, lunchtimes, playtimes etc all contain elements of P.S.H.E.

COMPUTING – This is mainly taught in a cross-curricular way in classes.

P.E. – Physical Education is taught as a lesson once a week. Great emphasis is placed upon listening and following instructions as well as upon the curriculum. Each pupil is provided with a P.E. kit. Playtimes are also times when physical activity is greatly encouraged. Swimming for targeted students takes place on Fridays. we work closely with Moving Matters who deliver training to staff and work with targeted groups to raise levels of fitness and improve pupils' responses to competitive sports/activities.

ART, HUMANITIES and DESIGN/TECHNOLOGY - These subjects are taught as part of our main topic throughout the week.  

FOOD TECHNOLOGY

MUSIC – is taught once a week by a visiting music specialist.

VISITORS/EDUCATIONAL TRIPS 

We recognise that these aspects are an important addition to the curriculum and when possible we organise trips and events that link in with the curriculum. We also work well with many outside agencies (e.g. GAV - Growing Against Violence) who come into Kennington Park Academy and teach sessions with staff present.

Please see your child's class team if you require more information on the curriculum.
