Our curriculum is ambitious. Subject leaders take pride in preparing a knowledge-rich, coherent and well-sequenced curriculum which is deliberately planned so that children acquire the knowledge and skills required for them to transition to their next stage of learning. As it pushes children beyond their day to day experiences, we develop courage and we support them every step of the way in their drive for excellence. Our curriculum is diverse and teaches them to respect different traditions, peoples, cultures, the environment and all of the members of the school community.
A knowledge-rich curriculum is an entitlement for every child, regardless of background. Curriculum coherence ensures that teaching does not jump from topic to topic, from ‘Under the Sea’ to ‘Superheroes’, but enables children to develop knowledge, and love of subjects. Subject content is crucial to this approach- the content provides the engagement and plants the seeds for a lifetime of learning.
We have 5 key principles that underpin our Curriculum design.
