Our intention is to provide a broad balanced curriculum, delivered through a culture of high expectations, principled and caring relationships and consistent routines. We use our expert subject knowledge to inspire and enthuse children, sparking curiosity and risk-taking.
Throughout the school, the intention of our curriculum and teaching is to develop vocabulary, knowledge, skills, character and culture over the long term. We support this through our ‘Pillars of Excellence’; strategies that represent best practices throughout the curriculum.
The links below provide more information about each of our subject areas and learning journeys. Please click on them to find out more.
Learning Journeys for 2022/23 will be Rotation A.
The Pillars of Excellence
The Pillars of Excellence represent best practise for developing the intention of our curriculum. They are based on best practices, such as Rosenshine’s Principles for evidence-based strategies that lead to better child outcomes.
The pillars are not a checklist to be seen in every lesson but a set of principles for teachers to use when planning, teaching and assessing.
The pillars will be used at appropriate times by the teacher to support the development of vocabulary, skills and knowledge needed for deeper learning within our curriculum.
Through effective implementation, the Pillars of Excellence will inspire and enthuse children, sparking curiosity and risk-taking. Our Pillars of Excellence are built upon our teachers’ expert knowledge alongside a culture of high expectations, principled and caring relationships and consistent routines.
The Pillars of Excellence are:
