Our curriculum

The Curriculum at the Croft Primary (April 2020 onwards)

Intent

Our curriculum is currently under construction.

We are building our curriculum from three drivers.

 

The Head: knowledge as defined in the National Curriculum.

The Heart: compassion and responsibility to our school, our locality, our nation and the world.

The Hand: skills that help us to become better learners and communicators.

 

We want our curriculum to ignite curiosity, inspire a love of learning and build knowledge and skills for all our pupils.  Our children will explore global themes through an enquiry-based curriculum.  Their inquiries will lead to a product.  This product will showcase their learning skills and nurture a sense of pride.  English will be a thread that knits our curriculum together.  Every class will develop their enquiries around high quality texts.  Wider reading will enrich their enquires.  Writing will communicate what we want to say to our school, our locality, our nation and the world.
