At Studley Green, the aim of our curriculum is to give all our pupils a rich, meaningful, purposeful education that engages and enthuses pupils. Our curriculum aims to set children up on their quest to become lifelong learners who strive for success and to flourish ‘beyond expectation’.
We aim to enable pupils to develop knowledge, understand concepts, acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations. We aim to develop not only their academic skills but also their self-esteem, development of themselves, their world and those around them. Additionally, we have designed our curriculum (and environment) to maximise the opportunities for our children to engage in physical activity and to take responsibility for becoming healthy and active.
We ensure equal access to learning, with high expectations for every pupil and appropriate levels of challenge and support. This is true of all the children within our school, including those in our resource base classes.
Our early years curriculum aims to promote the learning and development of our youngest children and ensure they are ready for Key Stage 1. To find information about our approach to equality and the curriculum and how we ensure it is accessible for all SEND and disabilities, please read our SEND policy.
Our curriculum has its foundations in the National Curriculum 2014, and we have built upon this to develop our unique curriculum that meets the needs of the children we teach; their starting points and their current needs. Each subject has an agreed progression that sets out what our children will know, the skills that they will acquire and the experiences that they have throughout their time at Studley Green.
Our school values of respect, kindness, positivity, honesty, resilience and responsibility are explicitly taught, discussed and promoted throughout all that we do.
