'Learning and Achieving Together'
The National Curriculum In England
'Every state funded school is required to offer a curriculum which is balanced and braodly 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.'
Over a period of time, leaders have developed an ambitious curriculum. It sets out the order of teaching and breaks learning down into small steps. These build towards end points that leaders have identified for each subject and year group.
There are many opportunities for pupils to thrive outside the classroom. Visits to the theatre, a Hindu temple and London Zoo are among the trips offered.
