Whilst we follow the national curriculum, our curriculum is unique because it is shaped by and for our children. Our curriculum has been carefully designed, planned and organised to ensure that ‘arts’ and ‘democracy’ lie at the heart of all that we do, whilst meeting the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.
Our curriculum has been designed to offer a range of experiences to ensure our children benefit from a full range of activities which will enrich their lives and live successfully in the ever changing world. Lessons are stimulating and interesting where children work collaboratively yet developing their independence.
Teachers plan the curriculum around the needs of our children ensuring that there are plenty of opportunities for cross curricular learning to enable the children to use their skills and understanding in all areas of the curriculum. When it is appropriate, we also make links to the core subjects and the other foundation subjects to give the children a real context to their learning and to inspire their imaginations.
The curriculum is filled with first hand purposeful experiences which enable children to expand their horizons and benefit from the breadth of opportunities available in our locality. These give children the chance to take on challenges and delve deeper to extend their expertise.
In Early Years, we follow the EYFS curriculum and from Key Stage 1, we follow the national curriculum and ensures that every child receives an appropriate mix of academic and personal development placing equal importance on core and foundation subjects. This means that at Corrie children will be well rounded successful young people who will be confident to tackle any challenge they may face.
In order to ensure continuity and progression across subjects, each curriculum area has a subject leader and the whole curriculum is monitored and improved by our Deputy headteacher responsible for the curriculum.
