Our PE curriculum intends to engage all pupils in regular physical activity in order to
build their confidence, resilience and knowledge on how to keep themselves
mentally and physically healthy.
We implement our curriculum through: high quality sequenced PE
lessons, investments in school sport and a relentless focus on increasing
physical activity. A broad range of sports are offered through our PE
Curriculum Map and throughout the school day to give children ample
opportunities to become active and to inspire them to succeed in physically-demanding
activities and competitive sports.
impact of our curriculum ensures that children have the knowledge, skills and understanding to become physically
literate, enabling them to lead and maintain healthy, active lives. Working
with Arches School Sports Partnership, we are able to increase children's
participation in competitive sports across Sheffield, enabling children to
reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently
well with others whilst developing a life-long love of sport and fitness.
Our Science curriculum intends to provide the foundations for understanding the world through biology, chemistry and physics.
To implement this, essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science will be sequenced effectively to ensure children construct a secure foundation of knowledge and concepts, which will be built upon in subsequent learning.
The impact of this approach will ensure children have the skills and knowledge to apply when working scientifically; this is how children will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity around science and how the world works.
Our intention is to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We strive to give children a coherent knowledge of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We want children to not only understand the narrative of different points of History, but to also have the chronological understanding how History links and overlaps from the earliest times to present day.
The History curriculum is implemented through a carefully planned and sequenced curriculum. Children will generally learn about two periods of History per year in a chronological order. Children gain a progressive understanding of three key strands; chronological understanding, knowledge & interpretation and historical enquiry.
The impact of our History curriculum is that children are equipped with the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop perspective and judgement. They understand the chronology of the History that they have studied and can explain their knowledge as a coherent narrative.
is to inspire pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our curriculum equips children with memorable knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and environments. We want children to not only identify key geographical facts, but to also have the secure knowledge and skills to compare and contrast natural and human environments.
The Geography curriculum is implemented
through a carefully planned and sequenced curriculum. Children will focus on a geographical region of the world. We begin with our local area and expand the children’s horizons by progressing to the wider world whilst applying previous skills and knowledge. Children gain a progressive understanding of four key strands: locational knowledge; place knowledge; human and physical geography; and geographical skills and fieldwork.
of our Geography curriculum is that children develop life-long contextual knowledge of globally significant places; understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world; and are competent in using geographical skills.
At Angram Bank our intention

We intend to equip pupils with the knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and world views, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identity.
Our RE curriculum is implemented through the Sheffield Agreed Syllabus.
