"Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere."
The aims of our curriculum are as follows:
to ensure that pupils have a clear sense of identity, understanding their place, both locally and in a broader world context, equipping them with the knowledge and skills required for their future as citizens in a globally diverse world;
to foster in each pupil a desire to achieve and succeed in all areas of life, fulfilling their potential and building aspirations for the future;
to provide a forward - thinking, outward - facing, inspiring curriculum that nurtures a love of learning and encourages pupils to become independent, resilient learners;
to instil the importance of respect and tolerance for one another and respect and care for the world around us.
At Grange we have developed a creative curriculum. We weave all of the requirements of the National Curriculum into exciting, current and relevant topics each half term and link these to our class story and writing lessons. At the start of each new topic, the children take part in an immersive 'launch day' to enthuse them about their learning. We also plan interesting visitors, activities and school trips across the different topics to build on what we have been learning in class. As well as being a creative curriculum, we really believe that teaching our children skills is the key to being successful beyond primary school, so the teaching of the skills is just as exciting to us as the content.
Please see our English, mathematics and curriculum policies for more information on how we teach these subjects at Grange.
