The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also any other activity organised by school, for example, extra-curricular activities and any other activities designed to enrich the experience of the children. There is also a ‘hidden’ element to the curriculum which includes what the children learn from their school environment, the way they are treated and how they are expected to behave.
We aim to deliver a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum which promotes the spiritual, emotional, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of our children. Our curriculum prepares pupils for the next stage of their education and equips them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences of adult life. In planning the curriculum and putting it into practice we aim to ensure that
- Pupils are able to learn to their best of their ability through providing appropriate emotionalsupport
- Pupils enjoy learning and can appreciate how their skills progress
- Lessons are interesting and challenging for pupils; they have pace and direction
- Stereotyping or discrimination through gender, sexual orientation or race is avoided
- Children’s learning progresses smoothly from teacher to teacher and throughout the key stages in school
- Children are prepared for life in a society which recognises the different cultural backgrounds of its citizens
