The School Curriculum is, as you would expect, exceptionally important to our school, our children and their development in the broadest sense. We aim to ensure that all children maximise their potential, achieve the highest academic results possible whilst ensuring that they develop to be well rounded, confident children who have developed the ability to learn to learn and therefore take ownership of their own learning and development.
Core Drivers - ALPS
Our core drivers underpin our curriculum and are our intent that will enable us to shape the curriculum around the needs and wants of our school and the children.
- Academic Excellence – our curriculum strives for excellence. We know that only our best is good enough and we work hard to maximise progress in learning for all children regardless of their starting points— academic, social and emotional, so that they can be the best they can be and make a positive difference to themselves and others in their community.
- Life Long Learning – our curriculum allows children to develop learning skills: readiness to learn, resilience, reflectiveness and resourcefulness to be the best learners they can be so that they are prepared for the challenges they will face.
- Possibilities and Risks – our curriculum allows children to explore what is possible to be achieved when they identify goals based on consideration of people as unique individuals, with their own passions and ideas. We challenge children to extend their boundaries and develop independence.
- Social Intelligence – our children learn how to appreciate and respect differences and celebrate the richness of the diversity in our community and beyond, recognising all the benefits that this brings.
As a maintained school we follow the National Curriculum as can be seen in detail via the DfE website.
