Curriculum Statement

                  

At Brookhill Leys Primary School we carefully design, plan and implement a curriculum which provides breadth and balance for every pupil:

When designing our curriculum careful analysis and discussions about our pupils’ backgrounds, life experiences and culture has taken place. It is underpinned with Five key priorities that we believe our children need to focus on so that they are ready to successfully meet the challenges of the next stage of their education and become resilient, life -long learners.

Our curriculum drivers are:

1- Community carers

2 - 21st century learners

3 - Global citizens

4- Environmental activists

5- Beautiful people

Our curriculum offers a range of experiences which contribute to every child receiving a full and rich curriculum. It is relevant and purposeful, preparing children for the next stages of their lives. It is aspirational, encouraging children to challenge themselves and follow their dreams. Teachers plan the curriculum based around the children’s interests, they work together in highly effective innovation teams to ensure continuity and progression and to provide children with unique learning opportunities. We strive to create future leaders and global citizens who are equipped with critical thinking skills, respect for others, self-belief, empathy and integrity.

Within our curriculum we will focus on these 5 principals to enhance the children’s education and create individuals that have the skills to become contributing citizens of the world.

Our curriculum is divided into subject areas. Learning is integrated where appropriate and curriculum planning makes many curriculum links. We use Sounds-Write as our phonics and spelling programme and employ Phonic-sequenced books, and Study Ladder as an online home learning resource.

We teach two languages Spanish and Mandarin and enrich children’s learning through educational visits both in and out of school allowing all children to gain a greater depth of understanding with a knowledge-rich focus.  We focus on providing a language rich curriculum and we teach our children Oracy skills to become confident, articulate learners.
