Aims of the School Curriculum

The broad aims for the school curriculum are:

  • Ensure Restorative Practice contributes effectively to building a self-regulating, self-motivated individual who consistently demonstrates respect, leadership and resilience when faced with adversity and challenge.
  • Provide an extensive curriculum with an emphasis on developing basic skills.
  • Provide a curriculum that encourages pupils to extend their interests beyond school, for example, club level sport.
  • Provide a coherent, carefully sequenced curriculum in every subject area which is designed to enable children to know more and remember more.
  • To ensure the curriculum will include clear planned opportunities for pupils to thrive together and understand that individual characteristics make people unique in a positive way.
  • Provide high quality teaching experiences, which excite and motivate children in the classroom and beyond. Provide enrichment opportunities where learning and teaching can take place beyond the classroom and at times involve the wider community such as parents and carers. Use a wealth of relevant resources – in classrooms, outdoors, in the local community and the wider area, including visits and visitors.
  • Encourage our pupils to develop their enterprise skills in order for them to grow into innovative, creative, strategic-thinking individuals who are equipped with skills that underpin employability.
  • Ensure each and every one of our pupils understands and embraces modern British values.
