Why our curriculum is unique:
We are very proud of our curriculum. Each subject has key themes which run through the curriculum. The children will meet these themes repeatedly as they move through the school, deepening their knowledge and understanding. The wealth of skills and knowledge will transfer across the different subject areas embedding their learning. Whilst the unique nature of each subject is valued, our curriculum has been created to build links within topics and to develop the children’s understanding of their place in the diverse world they are growing up in.
We teach the majority of our curriculum through our termly topics which take historical, geographical or scientific themes as their starting point and often starting from a story (acknowledging research into humans learning best in this way). We ensure children’s understanding and skills progress and develop by planning for each topic as a whole staff, led by subject leaders and senior leaders. Links are made wherever possible across the curriculum, with British Values, SMSC and bigger questions.
