Intent

New Curriculum Launched January 2023

Curriculum Intent

Our wider curriculum is inspired by Jonathan Lear's Guerrilla Education and it aims to develop both propositional knowledge and procedural knowledge; it encourages independence, curiosity and creativity; produces collaborators, innovators, leaders and, above all, it helps our children to understand what it means to be human.

Central to the curriculum are the following key skills that underpin everything we do:

Active Learning

  • To seek out and enjoy challenges
  • To collaborate with others
  • Assess ourselves and others

Basic Skills

  • To speak clearly and convey ideas confidently
  • To read and communicate efficiently and apply skills to solve problems
  • To use new technologies confidently and purposefully

Creative Thinking

  • To ask questions to extend their thinking
  • To generate ideas and explore possibilities
  • To overcome barriers by trying out alternatives or new solutions
  • To connect ideas and experiences in inventive ways

Our curriculum content is spread across three terms allowing us to explore each area of the curriculum in greater depth and enabling us to provide inspirational opportunities for children to immerse themselves in the content of the learning.
