Welcome To Our Enrichment Curriculum
Our enrichment curriculum encompasses all the subjects of the National Curriculum and is currently under review. We are re-evaluating the curriculum to ensure even greater rigour in the development of subject specific skills. We are looking carefully at the progression in each subject to ensure our curriculum enables children to think deeply and build sophisticated schema. Our revised curriculum will ensure that 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.
We want children to be 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 want to equip children for the future and are prepared to be innovative and bold with our curriculum delivery. We want our children to receive outstanding education in all areas of the curriculum and 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.
