BLACKROD PRIMARY SCHOOL
Curriculum – Vision into Practise
Statement of Intent
Our curriculum is designed around how children learn; to enable children at every opportunity to maximise their full potential. Our curriculum is designed to meet the learning and development needs of all our children, by ensuring meaningful experiences that build on their skills and knowledge. Our curriculum is underpinned by our School Values which promote excellence and high aspirations. The curriculum is exciting, challenging and inspires our children to develop the ability to be independent, resilient and motivated learners, in preparation for the next stage of their lives.
Our children have opportunities to thrive in all subjects and are able to develop intellectually, creatively, socially and physically. Our curriculum is enhanced with extracurricular opportunities to extend knowledge and understanding and improve skills.
We promote a culture of equality and respect and through our cultural capital opportunities, which progress through school, our children get the experiences they need to help them develop into caring and active citizens.
Our curriculum motivates all children to want to learn by promoting excellence through high expectations and aspirations. The curriculum is design to evolve and adapt with the children and the changing world.
We emphasise the importance of English and Mathematics. All children develop their knowledge, understanding in English and Mathematics through specific lessons and across the curriculum.
Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology and RE are predominantly taught through tailored cross curricular projects that revisit concepts time and again, to embed a greater understanding and develop transferrable skills. Some areas of subjects can be taught as discrete lessons if they are not supported by the learning theme.
PE, ICT and Music are delivered as specific lessons as well as in the learning theme.
