At Shorne Church of England Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and inspiring. The design of our curriculum and the impact it has on our learners is a key tool in driving school improvement and raising standards. We therefore recognise the need to regularly review our curriculum to ensure it not only meets the legal requirements set out in the national curriculum but that, crucially, it is responsive to the needs and interests of all our current learners; preparing them for the opportunities and challenges of life in the 21st century.
The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. The curriculum provides opportunities for our pupils to develop their talents and to celebrate their achievements.
We aim to provide a curriculum that fosters a love of learning and allows our pupils to become articulate, sensitive, caring global citizens with the skills to pursue any ambition they may have. Our curriculum aims to prepare our children to be confident, adaptable users of technology and to embrace the requirements of an ever changing future.
At our school we learn together that there are different pathways to success and develop perseverance by overcoming barriers. We understand that ‘making a mistake’ means learning is taking place and is just part of the learning journey to success. A love of learning is the greatest gift a school can bestow and should help all its pupils become the very best that they can be; developing a thirst for knowledge and building learning habits of mind that will last them a lifetime.
