Our Curriculum Principles
We believe learning is for life: a dynamic journey of discovery, bringing rich rewards and a sense of success and fulfilment, ensuring children can make the most of every opportunity that life has to offer.
The curriculum is the totality of experiences which are planned for the children as they progress through all of our schools.
The curriculum will have at its heart the learning behaviours that will support all children to be successful learners for life.
We will ensure that the curriculum is literacy rich, raises aspirations, drives ambition, and maximises high rates of progress in all areas.
Our curriculum will be broad, balanced, meaningful and relevant and build upon children’s prior knowledge.
It will be equitable, providing children with essential knowledge, skills and experiences to reduce the effect of disadvantage.
It will support all children to develop healthy attitudes to their and support them in their development as respectful members of the local community physical and mental health and society at large.
New Technologies will be used creatively to engage and support children in their learning.
All schools within our Trust will provide a curriculum, which inspires, challenges and safeguards all our children, and enables them to become:
