It is our intention to build the foundations of lifelong learners by developing children’s curiosity, creativity and strive for them to be active participants in their learning.
We have created a four year whole school curriculum which is based on a lead learning question. It is a broad and balance curriculum which is engaging and ensures that they learn the skills and knowledge in all subject areas to achieve their Butleigh Brilliance. Our curriculum develops the foundations of learning across all curriculum areas and builds on our children's knowledge and experiences.
Our school vision and values are threaded through our curriculum enabling children to aspire to be their best self in all areas
We enrich our curriculum with real experiences which allow children to develop their learning behaviours to become successful learners and focus on promoting our core values-respect, cooperation, courage, happiness, kindness, honesty. Within our 4 year cycle, we use a range of engaging topics which cover the National Curriculum objectives and demonstrate examples of our core values.
We support all children to develop their own ideas and we listen and respect everyone's opinion.
We enable children to learn to work together to discuss, explore and investigate different areas of the curriculum
We will support children to take risks and challenge themselves through a well planned curriculum
We plan a range of experiences which are engaging and stimulating which children find fun and engaging
We promote kindness through the curriculum by enabling children to find examples of kindness and share this with their peers.
We plan and model how honesty is an important value through the experiences and knowledge that we share.
We are very fortunate to have wonderful grounds including a playing field, a pond, two playgrounds and forest school area and experienced staff which enhance our curriculum.
All children will have at least one-half term of forest school coordinated by our Forest School leader, Mrs Higdon.
