CURRICULUM INTENT 2019
At Glenfield within our curriculum we are committed to making everyone feel brilliant and be brilliant - recognising that this can only be achieved by us working together and championing each unique individual. We welcome and celebrate our diverse community and strive to open children’s eyes to a world beyond their immediate environment filling gaps from pupil’s backgrounds.
Our children are central to all that we do. Through learning we endeavour to equip them with skills needed to be good people who make a positive contribution to society, who enjoy learning and continue to be learners for life.
Our fun language rich curriculum will challenge children making them think and work hard learning new knowledge and skills. It will promote the use of accurate and rich vocabulary in all subjects. At Glenfield we follow the national Curriculum and strive to enrich it wherever possible. Our children are taught in classes, small groups or individually according to their needs. A variety of teaching styles are used based on good practice and teachers continually reflect on their teaching. We are always working to improve to achieve high standards for all. Learning will be progressively revisited so their knowledge sticks and they can make links with what came before. Our children will be resilient learning from mistakes and be confident enough to take risks.
Topic start points will provide rich experiences including visits, visitors and hands on opportunities will take place early in each topic so every child can start on a level playing field and make the best progress possible. Exit points will provide children the opportunity to share their learning with a variety of audiences in a multitude of ways and feed into assessment.
Our curriculum is underpinned by our core values: Resilience, Honesty, Kindness, Courage, Independence, Respect
Our families are key partners in developing their children’s knowledge and we are grateful to all our families who support their child’s learning.
