Planning our Route to our New
'Challenge' Curriculum

The new curriculum is not here yet, but we will be moving towards it over the next year in many ways, some of which we aim to set out here.


Next year, along with the children, using the Four Purposes described in Donaldson's Successful Futures document,  we will plan lots of opportunities to practice skills across the curriculum taking into account learning and experience.  However,  we will ensure that we give the children their entitlement under the current curriculum arrangements whilst maintaining our focus on excellent standards, attainment and achievement.  


We do this through a ‘topic’ based approach which we have outlined above. We use Rights Respecting Schools and Values Based Education to underpin this work, creating ethical and informed 21st Century Learners
