Welcome To Our Enrichment Curriculum
Our enrichment curriculum encompasses all the subjects of the National Curriculum. It has been specifically designed to ensure rigour in the development of subject specific knowledge and skills. Consideration has been given to the progression in each subject, ensuring our children are enabled to think deeply and build sophisticated schema. It makes certain children are able to understand how the new information they are being taught fits with that already known, so that they can develop coherent skillsets to become historians, musicians, artists, designers, geographers, scientists and programmers.
Children here set the foundations for becoming life-long learners, who are excited by challenge and gain joy from acquiring new skills and knowledge.
As a church school, our Christian ethos is at the heart of all we do. Our work as a school and our curriculum are underpinned by the values of: Respect, Excellent, Determination, Courage, Teamwork and Creativity.
We equip children for the future and are prepared to be innovative and bold with our curriculum delivery. Our children need to receive outstanding education in all areas of the curriculum and we aim to ensure it provides the motivation, the skills, and the level of challenge that make this possible.
The Churchill Enrichment Curriculum is designed to help pupils:
1. To develop lively, enquiring minds together with a positive desire to learn, to question and discuss rationally and to apply themselves intelligently to tasks.
2. To experience the joy and satisfaction of creativity.
3. To consider the religious, spiritual and moral values of others, and to consider their own attitudes, values and beliefs.
4. To acquire knowledge and skills relevant, in a changing world, to their adult lives at work and at leisure.
5. To understand the history and present condition of their own society and the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.
6. To develop a sense of self-respect and individual worth, a capacity to live as independent, self-motivated adults and the ability to live and work in co-operation with others.
7. To develop positive qualities of empathy and imagination and an appreciation of human achievement and endeavour.
Our units of work are being carefully re-designed to develop each child’s level of skill and knowledge day-by-day, week-by-week, and year-on-year. It is this relentless drive for excellence and our partnership with parents that promotes outstanding achievement.
To ensure comprehensive cover of the curriculum for all children, our curriculum works on a 2-year rolling programme. 2022-23 is Year A.
