The curriculum is the totality of pupils’ learning experiences. At Cullingworth Village Primary School we believe that our curriculum should be broad, balanced and relevant and meet the needs of all children whatever their ability. The taught curriculum is comprised of 'The National Curriculum' and the wider curriculum. We ensure the children have a range of learning experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning. The curriculum meets statutory requirements.
The aims of the curriculum are to:
- promote high standards in reading, writing and maths;
- allow children to develop a knowledge of themselves in time and space;
- enable children to acquire knowledge and skills in science;
- enable children to be confident in the use of ICT;
- promote spiritual development;
- promote physical and mental development and an awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle;
- enable children to be aware of the importance of and participate in the arts and related cultural themes;
- enable pupils to develop moral sensibility through carefully taught values
- develop the personal and social skills of each child;
- provide equality of access and the opportunity for all pupils to make progress;
- prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of adult life.
The curriculum is planned effectively, providing continuity and progression. It promotes an enjoyment of learning and a commitment to learning and achieving.
Through the provision of rich and varied activities, we aim to:
- encourage the best possible progress and the highest attainment for all pupils;
- enable pupils to make connections across different areas of learning;
- help pupils to think creatively and solve problems;
- develop pupils’ capacity to learn and work independently and collaboratively;
