Our Curriculum

Curriculum Principles

To ensure that our schools are inclusive where pupils can maximise their academic, social and physical development our curriculum will:

    • be relevant, meaningful, engaging and enjoyable, providing pupils with an appropriate ownership and responsibility for their learning and behaviour
    • be linked to life beyond the classroom and designed to enable pupils to make a positive contribution to society
    • develop the “whole” child and be referenced to the ‘Every Child Matters’ principles
    • promote aspiration in pupils, parents, carers and all staff
    • positively create an ethos and environment to develop pupils as independent, creative and analytical “thinkers”
    • be flexible, enabling all pupils’ needs to be acknowledged, responded to appropriately and met
    • use first hand practical experiences whenever possible and high quality resources
    • be developmentally appropriate, without putting restrictions on a pupil’s ability to achieve at the highest levels, to develop depth of understanding and a secure knowledge base
    • promote the acquisition of basic skills in literacy, numeracy, computing, thinking including mastery of a range of subjects
    • promote the development of Emotional Intelligence
    • ensure that pupils can apply and use skills and ideas developed in one area of learning to another
    • instil respect for religious and moral values, tolerance of other races, religions and ways of life and help pupils to understand the independence and interdependence of individuals, group and nations in order to create equality of opportunity and promote British values
