Crudgington Primary School Curriculum Intent Statement
Here at Crudgington Primary School we seek to develop children as self-reflective, independent learners. We will encourage children to develop as confident individuals and recognise the wide range of skills and talents that our children possess.
We believe that children should be challenged as well as supported in order to achieve their maximum potential across all areas of the curriculum. Our engaging curriculum, which incorporates creative and inspiring contexts for learning, will both support and prepare our children fully for life in modern Britain.
We will encourage healthy lifestyles and promote a love of sport and exercise across the school ensuring children are both physically and mentally prepared for any challenges that may lie ahead.
At Crudgington Primary School, we believe that learning should be exciting, purposeful and challenging. Our school aims to inspire and prepare every child to have high expectations of themselves and others. We will achieve this through providing a creative and challenging curriculum which motivates and encourages all children to reach their potential.
This will be balanced with personal choice, sport and creativity so that each can flourish within a safe, but challenging framework designed to specifically fit their needs. We will prepare our children to encounter opportunities with resilience, perseverance and self-determination and encourage them to grow and become responsible independent learners.
We will work closely with the children, their families and the local community, fostering positive supportive relationships to benefit all pupils of the school. We are very determined for all our pupils and believe that our emphasis on high quality teaching is a key feature of our success.
- To aim for each child to achieve their full potential in all areas of the curriculum, so that they are equipped and prepared for their secondary transition.
- To provide a curriculum that is designed to excite and motivate children with a range of topics and projects that are of interest to them and to which they can fully contribute so that their learning is engaging, interactive and challenging.
- To create a positive, safe learning environment and to endeavour to develop the whole child, meeting individual needs where differences are recognised, celebrated and appreciated.
- To encourage pupils to be responsible British citizens for the future who can actively contribute to a diverse society.
- To support each child’s emotional well-being so that they can talk openly about their feelings with confidence.
- To equip children to evaluate and assess, to take risks and to make positive choices as part of their learning.
- To promote lifelong learning to all, through high quality professional development for all staff and by developing a learning culture throughout the school.
- To include all members of the school community, pupils, parents, governors and staff, in the process of development not only of themselves but also of the school itself.
Crudgington’s Curriculum – The National Curriculum
- In line with the 2014 National Curriculum expectations, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes pupils’ spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Children’s learning from our delivery of The National Curriculum develops the essential knowledge that they will need to be educated citizens.
- As part of The National Curriculum, children attend lessons in English, Maths and Science (Core subjects) and Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, Healthy Mind/Healthy Body (incorporating PSHE, RE, Values and Equality and Diverse Curriculum), History, Languages (KS2 only), Music and Physical Education.
- Teachers at Crudgington Primary School organise these National Curriculum subjects into high-quality, meaningful learning experiences within a topic or unit of work. These learning journeys combine well-linked subject matter into purposeful themes so that the children benefit from their learning to the greatest possible impact: not only are children engaging in high-quality learning, it is structured in a way to inspire and enthuse the learners.
