Much Birch Primary School Curriculum Statement
Our Curriculum Intent:
At Much Birch the curriculum is designed to:
Recognise children’s prior learning, build their knowledge through first-hand learning experiences in order to allow the children to develop interpersonal skills and build their learning skills (our ‘Key Drivers’ that underpin our curriculum) of resilience and perseverance, in order to become creative and critical thinkers.
Every child is recognised as an individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. We aim to instil the basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values underpinned by our Core Christian Values of friendship, perseverance, humility and hope.
We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage children and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
We use our values to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.
Our school is like a family and community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum, as we strive to celebrate local traditions that connect the children to members and events in our community.
Children leave our school with a sense of belonging - to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make the right choices as informed and global citizens - who have the aspiration to become lifelong learners.
