Learning Challenge Curriculum
Our broad and balanced curriculum is effectively planned and delivered. Teachers recognise the need to continually reinforce English and Maths teaching across the curriculum. However, they are equally committed to ensuring that pupils’ learning is deep in subjects beyond English and Mathematics. Staff plan different aspects of the curriculum around a number of broad enquiry questions that are designed to spark pupils’ curiosity. This diverse and engaging curriculum plays a vital role in sustaining pupils’ thirst for knowledge while greatly expanding their understanding of the world. The curriculum is interesting, exciting and engaging for pupils. Subjects are brought together in themes and questions that are interesting, relevant and engaging for pupils. Each new topic is introduced by an opportunity for pupils to consider ‘what they already know’ and ‘what they would love to find out’. Each topic ends with time to reflect. The imaginative curriculum successfully builds on pupils’ skills and knowledge as they move through the school. It meets the needs and interests of all pupils because it is effectively linked to national and local events.
