Curriculum

'Bringing out the best in everyone'

 

At Grove Primary School and Nursery we have high expectations of all our children. We want our children to become skilled readers, confident writers, mathematicians, scientists, artists, historians, geographers, musicians, linguists, athletes, designers, inclusive and diverse. We want our children to have no limits in learning, articulate what their ambitions are and  embody our core school values.

 

 

Our curriculum is carefully crafted so that our children develop their academic, social and cultural capital. As a staff team, we take great care to ensure that this curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of all our learners, whatever their starting points. Sequences of learning are tailored to ensure that key skills and knowledge are covered through creative and engaging learning opportunities. 

 

Our curriculum promotes curiosity and a love and thirst for learning. It is ambitious and empowers our children to become independent and resilient. We strive for academic excellence and want our children to have high aspirations. 

 

We aim to go above and beyond the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. Therefore, we have 4 curriculum drivers that are bespoke to our school:

 

Language and Oracy;     Lifelong Learners;    Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds;  Authentic Experiences

 

Our bespoke Curriculum Drivers inform our curriculum in every subject. They are adapted to meet the needs of each class. The drivers support our children to experience learning opportunities outside the classroom. It enables them to understand respect and why we must respect other people, property and the natural world.  We enable all of our children to show kindness at every opportunity. We achieve this by providing a strong PSHE curriculum, with British Values and our school values placed at the heart of our philosophy. We enrich a child's time in our school with memorable, unforgettable experiences and provide opportunities which are normally out of reach. We firmly believe that it is not just about what happens in the classroom, but in and around our local area and wider community.
