The Primary Curriculum is based on eight key principles
AGENCY – ensures children are at the heart of the curriculum where they feel empowered to share their opinions and shape the curriculum and choice in how they share their learning
ASPIRATIONAL – provides points of orientation towards the future we want
AMBITIOUS – ensures the curriculum is both challenging and rigorous. We strive for all pupils to develop resilience and perseverance, challenging and supporting children to aim high and achieve ‘more than they think they can’.
REAL and RELEVANT– provides real life, authentic application of knowledge and skills and opportunities for meaningful social action and entrepreneurship
COHERENT – ensures clear progression and connections in their learning
ATTRIBUTES, VALUES and ATTITUDES – promotes the qualities and dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century and are the cornerstones of respectful, global and healthy citizens.
PERSPECTIVE – promotes ‘international mindedness’ – local, national, international and intercultural perspective.
RESPONSIBILITY -stimulates critical thinking about global issues and sustainable development
