Curriculum Vision and Design

‘Inspiring Future Generations’


Our school vision is firmly rooted in our value statement, ‘Inspiring Future Generations’ and in our drive to raise the aspirations of all our children.  We are proud to be an inclusive school providing a high-quality, creative and challenging curriculum which is broad, balanced, ambitious for all and tailored to all groups of learners within our school. 


A key function of our curriculum is to ensure that all children achieve their best, now and in the future and are equipped to deal with future life experiences and challenges.  This readiness for the next stage of their education underpins all that we do.  We place a strong emphasis on the development of the basic skills necessary to be confident, independent learners that are successful we well as, reflective, able to make good choices and have a thirst for life and all that it has to offer. 


We weave the golden thread of oracy and champion a vocabulary-rich curriculum so that pupils can confidently articulate their learning and ideas across all areas of the curriculum. Being a vocabulary-rich school enables our children to explore new language and challenges them to expand the words that they know.


Key knowledge is organised and mapped to include full coverage of the National Curriculum and EYFS curriculum to ensure progression with many opportunities given to support pupils to recall this knowledge and to develop long-term memory skills.  Clear, consistent and progressive teaching sequences mean that pupils are able to master knowledge, skills and understanding in each area of the curriculum and are then able to use and apply this learning in a range of ways.  We develop children’s understanding through rich, connected learning opportunities and experiences so that pupils can connect new knowledge with existing knowledge.

Our curriculum is driven through valuable experiences that enhance the children’s view of the world.  Opportunities that enrich and enhance pupil learning are planned and our curriculum is brought to life through visits and visitors.  These linked experiences provide our pupils with an expanded view of the world.  Our cultural capital commitment means that we provide experiences many may not experience in their own lives and include but are not limited to: a residential visit, a pantomime visit as well as, experiences linked to subject learning like Zoo Lab in science, religious places of worship or a live music performance like Young Voices. 


Our children develop a strong sense of moral purpose, in addition to a respect and understanding of people who have different characteristics to themselves, whether that be age, disability, gender, race or religion.  Our pupils are at the forefront of our school and everything we do is to inspire them to achieve their potential and experience success.  We provide our children with a safe space which enables them to build resilience and with our support, remove barriers to their success.  This belief that all can succeed, drives our curriculum.
