Henry Chichele Primary School

“Everyone working together for life-long learning”

Curriculum Statement

Our aims:-

Every child has the opportunity to learn in an inclusive, safe and supportive environment.

Every child is motivated to become a creative, independent leaner who will reach their full potential.

Every child has the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding to use existing and new innovations.

Every child develops the necessary attributes to participate as a confident and responsible citizen in our ever changing global community.

National Curriculum

Our National Curriculum subjects are planned to enable us to teach them through an exciting thematic approach. Pupils are encouraged to transfer the skills and knowledge gained in one subject and apply them to another. Pupils are invited to contribute to the content of every theme and evaluate their own learning. The school promotes learning through the teaching of the 5R’s; Resilience, Reflection, Resourcefulness, Risk Taking and Relationships.

Resilience

Never give up; set targets and practise; have a positive attitude; find interest in what you do.

Reflection

Listen to different opinions; learn from mistakes; ask why; stay calm.

Resourcefulness:

Listen to different ways; use imagination; look at other options; ask good questions; make links; gather evidence.

Risk Taking

Have a go; don’t be afraid to be wrong; get started; choose a method.

Relationships

Work effectively as part of a team; know right from wrong; be a good listener; show empathy; share and give reasons.

Whole School Themes and Special Days

A series of subject ‘theme days’ take place during the academic year which are either linked to current issues or guided by the subject coordinator. This enables us to look at religions; famous people; artists; current issues etc. These days also provide us with a great opportunity to develop cross curricular work; enter competitions; develop projects and work with external providers; celebrate religious festivals; national days of interest or develop topics suggested by the pupils via the School Council.

We regularly hold special days to reflect real time/life events, invite visitors to our classes/assemblies and participate in visits to promote British values.

We strongly believe that children are learners both in and out of school. Therefore we encourage learning at home; organise a range of experiences including visits to places of educational interest and invite specialists into school. We offer extra-curricular activities and children in Years 4 and 6 participate in residential trips.

We provide a curriculum overview for each year group and an information letter each term for parents; these are sent home with children and made available on the website.
