Inspiring learning

Our curriculum nurtures self-belief through:

  • building positive relationships between all members of the community
  • explicit teaching of the skills needed for effective learning
  • promoting self-awareness and emotional intelligence
  • building resilience through strong PSHE and wellbeing

Our curriculum inspires success through:

  • having high expectations for all children,
  • stimulating curiosity and excitement and developing independence.
  • enriching children’s life experiences
  • teaching children to be confident communicators with strong language skills
  • involving families in children’s learning

Children are proud of their learning and keen to share it. The curriculum has been carefully designed to take into account the very special local context. We have a diverse community, fabulous grounds and the floating harbour and city centre within walking distance. We make regular use of these rich learning opportunities very close at hand.
The curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of the national curriculum and to be meaningful to the children growing up in a diverse community. We prioritise effective oracy alongside literacy and maths, we visit local religious institutions we create leadership teams to encourage children to identify areas for change and act to effect it.
Specialised learning days and weeks provide a focus for smaller bespoke learning projects - for example, Black History Week and Hannah More's birthday each have carefully planned learning opportunities to develop children's historical skills and knowledge. Another example is SRE week where Years 1-6 deliver set of lessons as part of a carefully designed scheme of work. This was created in conjunction with a group of parents to ensure that the resources used are acceptable to all communities. Each year the curriculum is shared with parents and they are encouraged to discuss the learning with their children.
We have strong links with the local business community at Temple Quay with volunteers from Deloitte running a lunchtime maths group, HMRC and RBS supporting the school through reading with children.
Our reading and writing curricula centre around high quality fiction and non-fiction texts and we use a mastery approach to the teaching of maths. The wider curriculum is delivered through an enquiry based approach. You can find out more about what is covered in each subject on the pages in this section.
