Eldwick Primary School Curriculum
At Eldwick, our culture is built on one simple message, ‘We are all getting better, all of the time, as a team’. This extends into every area of our school. Through our curriculum, we aspire to unlock passions, realise potential, nurture a life-long love of learning and lay the foundations for a fulfilling life in our diverse world. We aim to learn from the past, understand the present and shape the future in positive and meaningful ways. We believe that everyone should have access to the powerful knowledge, skills and experiences to see themselves as artists, musicians, sportspeople and masters of their subjects. Throughout their learning journey at Eldwick, we want all our children to feel represented with their fascinations recognised and celebrated. Our curriculum is continually shaped and reshaped by the children, the community, the school’s values and the wider world.
Curriculum Philosophy – Six underlying attributes at the heart of Eldwick's curriculum and lessons.
Lessons and units are knowledge and vocabulary rich so that pupils build on what they already know to develop powerful knowledge.
Knowledge and skills are sequenced and planned vertically and horizontally giving thought to the optimum order for building secure schema.
Our curriculum is evidence informed through rigorous application of best practice and the science of learning. Lessons are carefully planned and well taught.
We prioritise the creation of a diverse curriculum by committing to diversity in the subjects, themes, voices, texts and media we use, so all pupils feel positively represented. It is our mission to enable children to develop an ethical, inclusive world view beyond their immediate surroundings, influences and experiences.
Our curriculum is unashamedly ambitious. We ensure our children are challenged and enthused through the texts and experiences they encounter within the safe environment of the classroom.
