Curriculum Overview

The overall aim of the curriculum we are developing and implementing is to open doors of opportunity for our children

 

All children have a range of "futures" open to them based on a number of factors including their experiences, the support that they have received and their attainment. Our curriculum aims to ensure that no "doors" are closed to the children while they are with us and new doors (which were previously not accessible) are opened.  

 

We recognise that the skills of speaking, listening, reading, writing and mathematics are the key to opening many doors in the future - without these a child's chances will be limited as they move on in education and the world.  

 

However, we also recognise the importance the wider curriculum - including the sciences, humanities and the arts, as well as other key areas such as PE, PSHE and healthy lifestyles (including food technology) - and developing the children's underlying attitudes towards learning and their learning behaviours.    

 

We also recognise the importance of making sure that all children have had certain experiences, so that they have the cultural capital to excel in their future lives. To this end, we are currently developing and implementing the Pirton Hill Pledges. 

 

The curriculum we are developing and implementing aims to broaden horizons and give the children the knowledge and curiosity to push open doors of possibility.

 

The following documents are aimed to give you a flavour of what we intend the children to learn in each year group and how we will implement it.
