Old Hall Primary School is committed to ensuring that the curriculum is ambitious, relevant, broad, balanced and carefully sequenced, in order that the needs of all children are provided for, whatever their gifts and talents. Our curriculum gives pupils a vast experience of mathematical, scientific, linguistic, technological, physical and creative education.
We believe in a curriculum that inspires and broadens children’s experiences and passion for learning. This belief drives what happens at our school. We are dedicated to ensuring that the children develop a real love of learning. We believe that we have a duty to help every child to become a rounded individual who is able to play their full part within an ever changing society.
Our approach to education is holistic; we are concerned for the whole child – mind, body and spirit. We offer an exciting and challenging curriculum for all. We set high standards and expect each child to give of their best in all that they do. English is our key curriculum driver, with high quality core texts at the very heart. The English curriculum has been carefully planned to compliment and further enhance the History, Geography and Science curriculum, with explicit opportunities for cross curricular reading and writing experiences planned to further enhance the learning journey, supporting children to know more and remember more.
These are the 4 main themes that span our curriculum:
- Our place in our world
- Inquisitive Investigators
- Achieving Aspirations
- Creative Collaborators
Our curriculum is also designed to reflect our local context, making our learning even more meaningful and relevant to the children of Old Hall. Some examples of how this has been achieved can be seen below.
We celebrate our pupils’ achievements in all areas and recognise that all have different strengths and talents. We ensure the children have a range of learning experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning. The curriculum meets statutory requirements. All children have a right to an appropriate curriculum regardless of sex, race, disability, religion or belief.
