At Pixies Hill, we have a vision which focuses on the intent, implementation and impact of our curriculum.
Our curriculum vision statement is:
This is the vision on which our whole curriculum is built. In 2019, we began to re-write our curriculum to this intent and have a long term plan for all curriculum areas. Across 2019 to 2021, we wrote bespoke unit plans covering the whole curriculum which expands on the long term plan for each term and all year groups. This is a project which was lead by the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Curriculum leader. Our curriculum not only covers the national curriculum, it goes beyond this with breath, depth and challenge at all levels. In 2022-23, we will be working on further refinements to our curriculum development to deliver knowledge maps for the children. Reading, the enhancement of vocabulary and opportunities to foster independence and provide additional support are key pillars that envelope all areas of our curriculum.
Each Curriculum Leader has written a ‘Vision’ statement for their subject area. These are statements which underpin the curriculum and are used to fuel the direction of each subject. If you would like to see the vision statements for each subject, please click here.
In addition to the above, we are working hard towards attaining Science Mark accreditation. Please click here to see our ‘Visions and Principles’ poster which is guiding this work.
We use the Read, Write, Inc phonics scheme across KS1 and in Year 3 for catch up and reinforcement work (Please see our ‘workshops’ page for further details and a video presentation).
All the staff and children at Pixies Hill are very proud of attaining the Healthy Schools Mark.

Below are the knowledge maps which detail the learning, sticky knowledge and vocabulary for each part of the curriculum. To see a knowledge map, click on the relevant year group and scroll to find the subject you would like to know more about.
You may notice that some subjects have more curriculum maps than others e.g. PE only has one map and Geography only spans two terms. This is because in PE we are using ‘Get Set 4 PE’ which has one PDF document with all the subjects across the year or that the subject (Geography in this example) is taught once every half term and includes a project in KS2 summer term.
The Knowledge Maps are the property of Pixies Hill School.
