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 enhancement 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.
Our school curriculum is designed to incorporate coverage of the National Curriculum. This is enhanced by the inclusion or our Curriculum Outlooks and 5C Values.
Our 4 key Curriculum Outlooks are:
A Global Outlook, An Enterprising Outlook, A Creative Outlook and A Healthy Outlook.
Each topic that is taught takes one outlook as a focus, ensuring a balanced coverage.
Our school curriculum also incorporates our key 5C Values. These are:
Caring, Courteous, Conscientious, Considerate and Co-operative to become valued members of the community.
