Curriculum Intent Statement
At The John Harrox Primary School, our curriculum is designed to ensure children have a love for learning and a thirst for knowledge. It recognises children’s prior learning, providing first-hand learning experiences, allowing the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers. Children’s learning is viewed as a sequence, building blocks of knowledge overtime to achieve a bigger picture. Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a keen desire for new experiences and knowledge.
We promote 4 key outlooks of our world, which include:
A Global Outlook
An Enterprising Outlook
A Creative Outlook
A Healthy Outlook
Each topic that is taught takes one outlook as a focus, ensuring a balanced coverage.
Our curriculum aims to ensure the children can develop a creative view of the world, developing an understanding and appreciation for the arts. The link below gives greater detail about each of our Outlooks and how they are promoted throughout our school curriculum.
Our school values encompass the 5 C's
Caring – to ensure children develop a caring nature towards one another, their environment and their community.
Courteous – to help children to become polite, we-mannered and respectful individuals.
Considerate – to ensure children grow up to think about the needs, feelings and views of others.
Co-operative – to help children develop the communication skills necessary to work well with others.
Conscientious – to foster an attitude within every child where they have an inner desire to do their best, each and every day, in order to become the best person they can be.
These 5 C’s are the values that underpin our school Community ensuring it is a supportive, safe and nurturing environment for everyone within it – pupils, parents, staff and visitors.
Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, industry and the area in which our children live. Children leave the school with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
