We have updated our curriculum.
Posted on January 31, 2018
It is our strongly held belief that reading unlocks opportunity therefore our curriculum is designed to instil a love of reading in our pupils by placing high quality fiction and non-fiction books at its heart. With a clear progression in knowledge, skills and understanding our curriculum maintains breadth and depth as we feel passionately that through nurturing the creative, scientific and worldly aspects of the 2014 National Curriculum we are creating well rounded members of society.
Our curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils through;
- developing readers and thinkers who through the inspiring and thought provoking texts will be investigative, imaginative and creative, and who will question and challenge what they encounter
- the broad coverage and understanding of the world faiths to encourage tolerance and respect
- an expectation of high quality outcomes which develop deeper thinking and understanding,
- a rich understanding of history, geography and the arts giving our pupils a sense of their place in the world and how the United Kingdom has become the country it is today
- fostering cooperation, competition and challenge
The curriculum is designed spark curiosity and the motivation to learn by ensuring;
- they generate and answer their own questions
- each unit of science provides pupils with the opportunity to develop their scientific skills alongside their knowledge and understanding
- the curriculum is regularly reviewed and informed to reflect the needs of our school community
- subjects have explicit and tangible skills progressions as pupils move through the school
- we aim for our pupils to have opportunities to deepen their understanding through teaching others, applying their knowledge, understanding and skills independently and sharing their outcomes with the community.
