Curriculum Impact: What difference does the curriculum make to our children?
Our curriculum promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and understanding and a love of learning, evidenced by pupil engagement and feedback. It is ‘word rich’ and builds ‘cultural capital’, providing opportunities for academic, technical, creative and sporting excellence. It has a very positive impact on all pupils’ behaviour and safety, and contributes very well to pupils’ academic achievement, their physical well-being, and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Our curriculum ensures that the needs of individual and small groups of children can be met within the environment of high quality-first teaching, supported by targeted, proven interventions where appropriate. Enjoyment of the curriculum promotes achievement, confidence and excellent behaviour.
When our children leave us, as well as being ready for a KS3 curriculum, they have a wealth of transferrable skills which have been developed throughout their time at primary school in an inclusive and nurturing environment. Developing children’s independence, motivation and attitudes as learners, and their sense of responsibility as future citizens is at the heart of all our teaching and learning.
We ensure quality-first teaching enables our children to develop their long-term memories and define their progress as knowing and remembering more. Teachers and staff work hard to plan a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum which is expertly delivered to ensure a child’s entire school experience enables them to develop a deep body of knowledge which will see them through to further study, work and a successful adult life in whatever pathway they choose.
