'Learning and Achieving Together'
The National Curriculum In England
'Every state funded school is required to offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:
promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.'
The Aims of the National Curriculum:
'The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils' knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.'
Hobletts Manor Junior School Curriculum Statement
Our curriculum is knowledge rich, progressive and skills based. It is designed to engage and inspire, encourage risk taking, challenge thinking and develop questioning.
We aim to deliver comprehensive, creative and cross-curricular learning that is bespoke to our children’s individual needs, providing them with the freedom to explore the world around them with confidence, both independently and collaboratively.
We strive to ensure that all aspects of our ambitious curriculum are accessible to all our children, irrespective of ethnicity, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background.
We aim for each day to be a positive experience for every child with opportunities to challenge themselves through engaging and stimulating activities that allow them to learn both independently and collaboratively. This within an environment that is welcoming and encouraging, created by a caring and compassionate team that acknowledges and celebrates the achievements of all as we support and challenge each other to be the best that we can be.
And in so doing we will deliver our vision: to inspire proud, confident lifelong learners to achieve success for all.
