Harwell Primary School Curriculum
The following curriculum statement outlines the broad aims of Harwell Primary School and the curriculum that it offers. Each curriculum subject’s intent links to these aims.
At Harwell School, our vision for your child is to help them to develop a love of learning, along with the skills and the ways of thinking to excel at whatever they choose to do in the future, to be Respectful, Responsible, Resourceful and Resilient learners.
These positive characteristics are the foundation to develop emotionally literate children.
The breadth of our curriculum is designed to support our vision with these goals in mind:
1) To support our children to know the Possibilities for their future lives and build emotionally literate and aspirational pupils.
2) To provide a rich ‘cultural capital’ to enable pupils to be active, responsible members of our school, the locality, our country and the world – Community.
3) To provide a coherent, structured and balanced curriculum that enables children to ‘know more’ so that they can ‘apply more’ to aim for mastery in all subjects.
Curriculum sequencing plans are designed with these drivers in mind. Plans are reviewed by teaching staff and subject leaders on a regular basis, who ensure that the planned curriculum has been taught and is helping children build knowledge, skills and a love of learning in all curriculum areas. Opportunities to further embed our drivers ‘Possibilities’ (incorporating the school values of Resilience and Resourcefulness) and ‘Community’ (incorporating the school values of Respect and Responsibility) are explicitly identified in our medium term plans.
Our curriculum meets all statutory National Curriculum 2014 and Early Years Foundation Stage 2021 requirements. Each curriculum subject’s statement embeds these drivers and outlines the intent within their subject sequencing document.
