Our curriculum documents are currently under review, please visit again soon (November 2019).
In September 2014, the New Primary National Curriculum was implemented. The new curriculum is based on a secondary school model. There is a greater focus on learning through specific subject areas and involves learning a combination of facts and understanding how to apply this knowledge through research and problem solving.
At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum, Tow Law Millennium Primary School remain committed to:
- A range of teaching and learning styles;
- Differentiated learning materials;
- Access to a range of IT;
- Additional in class support;
- Additional out of class support;
- Flexible groupings – including small group support work;
- An innovative and supportive curriculum;
- The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions;
- A broad range of extra-curricular activities, including one-to-one support and booster/extension sessions;
- Individual outcomes through a SEND plan to help pupils meet their potential;
- Personalised half termly target setting for each child;
- Applications during national testing at Key Stage 2 to obtain access arrangements as appropriate.
Pupil assessment is an on-going process and forms an essential part of teaching and is designed to promote the raising of achievement. Pupil assessments provide important information for pupil review and support meetings and are also used to gather evidence for referral to external support agencies.

Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum
At Tow Law Millennium Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning.
The documents below show the curriculum map for each class across the academic year.
In September 2012, an Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum became statutory and therefore your child receives activities and opportunities in line with this.
There are three prime areas of learning;
- Personal, Social and Emotional
- Physical Development
- Communication for Language
There are four specific areas of learning;
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Please see our Foundation Stage Policy below for further Information.
At Tow Law Millennium Primary School, we see teaching and learning as being founded on the principles of opportunity for achievement and excellence for all. In accordance with our school ethos, we support the development of the whole child whilst valuing and celebrating all the special abilities displayed by children. We believe that some pupils may have exceptional special abilities and talents and that monitoring these is our responsibility. The more able pupil has particular needs because they demonstrate an exceptionally higher level of ability when compared to pupils of the same age in one or more curriculum areas.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
