Our vision for our new curriculum
Pupil activities will be motivating and enjoyable. The curriculum should contain learning events that others can share and the pupils will remember.
It will engage all pupils by offering a breadth of exciting learning opportunities.
Our curriculum will set out specific learning opportunities and have clearly defined goals, but also the flexibility to personalise learning from our pupils. The curriculum will not be prescriptive in its content. Teachers will be able to adapt their teaching to their cohort and be responsive to local and world events.
Our curriculum will inspire our pupils to achieve the very best they can. The learning bus will be started and driven by adults but will be directed by children. The curriculum will celebrate and preserve the history and heritage of the local area while being aspirational in its consideration of the world beyond Loftus.
Pupils need first hand experience - to touch, see, wear, feel and visit as part of their learning. The use of ICT will enhance and extend children's learning across the whole curriculum whilst developing motivation and social skills.
The curriculum will be accesible to all of our pupils, no matter what their starting point with us is, or their social situation. Accessible for all and without limits to the learning.
Basic - Independent - Social
Pupils will be taught skills to make them 'secondary ready' Learning how to find and interpret a fact is much more powerful than just learning a fact. Our curriculum will teach children the importance of being spiritually, morally, socially and culturally aware and reponsible.
