Curriculum Statement 2017

 

This is the Governing Body's Annual Curriculum Statement.At Birches Green Junior School our curriculum is underpinned by the national Curriculum (2014).

We provide a broad, balanced, differentiated curriculum for all the children through a creative, cross curricular approach and by providing a wide range of exciting, challenging activities and experiences for all pupils irrespective of ability, background, ethnic origin or gender.

Through the curriculum, we aim to prepare pupils for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of adult life and to lay a firm foundation for future learning.  We place a strong emphasis on the development of the basic skills necessary to be confident independent learners and successful adults. We also realise the importance of nurturing individual skills and talents.

Our aim is that the curriculum will ensure:

  • Learning is in a meaningful context for the children.
  • It is stimulating and exciting
  • Inspires ‘Learning is for life’
  • Takes learning beyond the classroom
  • Builds confidence, resilience and motivation within our children.
  • Enables children to learn to value others, their views, cultures and beliefs.

As a school we also promote the fundamental shared values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
