Our curriculum is underpinned by a clear whole school vision and a set of curriculum drivers: Our Curriculum drivers are characteristics that define our curriculum and underpin the work we do. Our drivers are areas that we value as a school; they give focus to learning opportunities and are embedded throughout teaching and learning, developing the whole child.
At the heart of our curriculum is a strong, in-depth knowledge of each and every child. Planning the curriculum starts with knowing the class, knowing where each child is, knowing where the gaps are and what the next steps are. We believe that starting from the children’s needs and interests and designing a topic around them enables the children to gain a fuller understanding of the learning in question. It enables them to engage more deeply, to understand the relevance of what they are learning, why learning matters and develops the child as a whole.
