Our Values and our Curriculum
A curriculum where there is equality of opportunity, and where respect for each other and our local and global community is intrinsically embedded. In practice this means that our curriculum will;
- Make links between subjects where appropriate
- Make links with the world beyond our school.
- Be purposeful.
It will enable learners to;
- Understand the context of their work.
- Develop inquisitive minds
- Develop a passion for learning
- Be culturally enriched
A curriculum that encourages everyone to take responsibility for each other; a curriculum built around hope, empathy and compassion; where relationships are strong and there is a secure and safe learning environment. In practice, this means;
- A curriculum that values the partnership with families and the community, taking every available opportunity to celebrate and share our learning together
- A curriculum that is progressive and enables seamless transition throughout the primary phase.
A curriculum where, through encouragement, challenge and positivity, everyone can develop their skills independently and collaboratively, and where learners are encouraged to take risks.
In practice this means that our curriculum will immerse learners to inspire and engage them, developing a range of key life skills. It will reflect the interests of the children to further stimulate learning.
A curriculum that is built on having expectations of ourselves and each other, where there is a belief that we can all achieve through persistence, determination, resilience and humour.
In practice, this means that whilst the curriculum will deliver statutory content, it has a key focus on developing a range of transferable skills, including learning to learn skills, that will enable the children to make accelerated progress in all curriculum areas.
