Success in this challenging and fast-moving century requires pupils to know how to keep well and safe as well as understand how to learn and access learning independently.
Pupils must develop strong critical thinking, interpersonal and communication skills in order to develop the capacity to master knowledge and skills, whilst understanding by analysing, synthesising and evaluating information from a wide variety of subjects and sources. If they can recall, reflect, be resilient, resourceful and reciprocal, they will, succeed in an increasingly fluid, interconnected and complex world.
Pupils build the learning power, language to express it and study skills they need to work towards articulating this learning, using a variety of learning techniques, such as resourcing and mind-mapping to build independence and be in a position to bring knowledge to problem-solving as preparation prior to the lesson. Well-established planning and homework habits, working at the best pace for them, participating, presenting their work and behaving appropriately, proof-reading for accuracy, persevering, learning through feedback and responding to next steps marking take the pupils forward and build best work ethic.
Our curriculum enables children to fulfil their potential, prepares them for the world they live in and will live in, and starts them on the road to the world of work and understanding their responsibility as global citizens This is achieved through:
- an effective personal, social and health wellbeing programme;
- pupils acquiring speaking, listening, literacy and numeracy skills and knowledge;
- the incorporation of British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and cultures;
- a curriculum which gives pupils experience in a linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, economic and entrepreneurial, physical and aesthetic and creative education;
- cross-curricular initiatives such as STEAM projects that bring different aspects of the curriculum together.
