Wider Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum prepares pupils with the essential knowledge and skills for their future. We follow a broad and balanced curriculum – the National Curriculum – and have designed a sequenced and progressive format to ensure that lessons build on prior knowledge and enable our pupils to know more and remember more. Our curriculum is inspiring and challenging, in order to offer pupils opportunities to grow as unique individuals as well as learners. Pupils are given opportunities for practical hands-on experiences for active learning. These experiences allow the children to develop their interpersonal skills, build resilience, develop their curiosity and become creative, critical thinkers.

Our curriculum is designed to reflect local history, geography and people and ensure that our pupils have wider experiences. It provides a base around which teachers develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum. Lessons are enhanced by visits, visitors or experiences (including a varied careers programme) to stimulate and engage children and provide exciting opportunities for our pupils to deepen their understanding and learn about the world around them.

Curriculum Drivers

Our curriculum is underpinned by the following curriculum drivers:

  1. Wellbeing – the importance of physical and mental wellbeing in all aspects of life
  2. Love of learning – developing a passion for learning and discovery in all subjects
  3. Culture and community – knowing the importance of each individual’s impact in the local and global community
  4. Basic skills – ensuring our pupils have the skills they need to succeed
  5. Sustainable living – a focus on our impact on the planet and the future
