At Broughton Church of England Primary School, we focus on living out our mission statement of ‘Love learning, life, one another and God’ and the school’s bible verse, ‘Rejoice in every day of life’, (Ecclesiastes 11:8) in everything we do, including the curriculum provision. This ensures that the work of the school is firmly based on the Christian Values of love and joy and places Jesus at the heart of our learning. Members of staff are committed to finding the opportunities for love and joy throughout the curriculum.
The primary aim of our curriculum is to ensure that children develop a love for learning and that they are well prepared for the next stage of their schooling and beyond. We achieve this through the provision of a curriculum which is ambitious, rich and relevant and by making developing reading skills an area of priority. We provide children with a wide range of learning opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom and we are dedicated to ensuring that all children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
The content of our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and is planned and sequenced in a coherent way to ensure that the learning needs of all the children in school are met. We focus on making links across different subjects and on making the learning experiences meaningful. We believe that by doing so, children can learn more, remember more and, thereby, become successful learners.
At Broughton, we encourage children to develop good learning behaviours. Children and staff have worked together to decide on the characteristics of a good learner and these are used during learning activities to promote a wide range of skills.
A Broughton learner:
Learns with others: they collaborate and participate
Embraces challenge: they question, demonstrate enthusiasm and are willing to try new approaches
Takes responsibility for their own learning: they are independent, reflective and they complete homework
Perseveres with learning: they are resilient, focused and understand that making mistakes is a necessary part of learning
