We dream, then believe. We work together to prepare and persevere to achieve.

At Rocks Park we believe that all children are entitled to a rich and balanced curriculum. Knowledge and skills should be built upon year on year with opportunities to apply these across both core and foundation subjects. Our teachers work together to create a flow of learning over the course of a term. Much of their work sits within the context of their Learning Journey meaning English skills are practised through ‘topic’ work and foundation subject knowledge is enhanced and shared through an English context. Science is incorporated in the the flow of learning when it will best enhance children's understanding of scientific knowledge and concepts. Scientific Enquiry skills are taught throughout the school year. The teaching of mathematics often sits outside of the flow of learning, however teachers carefully plan opportunities when pre-taught maths skills can be reinforced and applied through the flow of their learning journeys. Knowledge and skills progression maps have been developed by our staff and subject leaders to ensure clear guidance for staff so that knowledge is built upon and skills are developed and enhanced year on year. These can be found on individual subject pages. Please look at our Curriculum overviews below to get a more comprehensive view of your children’s learning at Rocks Park.
