“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
The Brooke Weston Trust Primary Curriculum provides children with everything they need to become educated, thoughtful and responsible citizens. It incorporates the essential knowledge and skills of the National Curriculum alongside providing enquiry, cultural capital and practical, purposeful first-hand experiences so that children develop an emotional connection to, and an understanding of, their place in the world. It introduces children to the best that has been thought and said and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement, powerfully addressing disadvantage.
The curriculum has been developed to allow coverage of the National Curriculum Programmes of Study alongside developing the skills of language, enquiry and investigation. It builds in opportunities for regular revisiting of core and foundational skills, giving children life opportunities as well as a secure knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Regular reflection on the curriculum ensures that it is current, relevant and meets the needs of an ever changing world.
Developing the skills of inquiry and investigation underpin our hands-on curriculum which provides rich life experiences for children, building their understanding of the world beyond their community. Our topic themes link together the knowledge of geography, history, music, art and design and technology whilst RE, PE, computing, MfL (Spanish) and PSHCE are taught in discrete lessons. Children enjoy a rich variety of creative experiences, for example all children learn a musical instrument. An extensive Outdoor and Adventurous Activity programme ensures that residential experiences are offered across the school.
Our children’s social and emotional well-being is at the heart of everything we do and our strong PSHCE curriculum and SMSC calendar provide opportunities for children to develop into socially responsible, well-balanced citizens whilst the pastoral support offered by our Wellbeing Team ensures all their needs are met.
