Curriculum Intent and Overviews
Every child will access a full and diverse curriculum which challenges and develops them to grow academically, personally and socially.
As spiritual beacons and through our curriculum we are all:
Through the delivery of our Curriculum across school we endeavour to interweave these drivers.
Our curriculum is, where possible, taught through topics and links are made across subjects. Our topics and subjects within them are planned so that there is clear progression and children can build on their prior learning too. Wherever we can, links are made to our locality so that our children have an increasing awareness of the area in which they live. However, we also consider our place in the wider world too for example in Year 3 when they study Africa and make connections with our link school in Uganda.
Each year, we have a 'Whole School Project' that links to an element of social justice either globally or locally. This is an excellent opportunity for our children to work together on something that they can be passionate about. These projects put our curriculum drivers at the forefront of learning and children can truly understand how they can be 'Beacons'. Our recent projects have included: 'Save Our Tiger' in which we adpoted a tiger and looked at why tigers were under threat and what we could do to help; 'Paddington Bear' where we looked at Paddington's experience of travelling somewhere new and trying to fit in, KS2 extended this to understanding what is meant by the term refugee and how we can help and support those in need. This year's project is going to focus on the Oceans and our Environment.

NB: Summer 2 Whole School Topic Plans will be populated each year so that they are up to date and relevant to our chosen project.
