Our curriculum aims to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding to achieve their academic and social potential. We value and recognise that our pupils come from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures. Recognising the unique needs of our pupils and the community we serve, we aim to:
1) Provide pupils with purposeful and memorable experiences to develop as engaged, confident, responsible citizens
2) Provide a knowledge and skills-rich learning experience and to develop their ‘cultural capital’.
3) Provide a coherent, progressive curriculum that leads to sustained mastery for all and a greater depth of understanding for those who are capable of achieving this. We have high expectations for all our pupils, providing tailored support to ensure they all reach their personalised targets.
We have developed three curriculum drivers that shape our curriculum, bring about the aims and values of our school, and to respond to the particular needs of our community.
Reading fluency across the curriculum – to develop pupils’ understanding and access in a breadth of subjects, so that they gain an understanding of the world around them.
Oracy skills – these help pupils’ language acquisition across the curriculum and develop speaking and listening skills.
Environment – this helps pupils to be an active, responsible member of our school, the locality, our country and the world, as well as developing an understanding of themselves and their role in the environment.
