September 2019 marked the launch of our new curriculum at Greasley Beauvale Primary school. Our curriculum has been designed to provide an enriching and challenging curriculum which exposes children to wider world issues and experiences.
We believe that to do this, our curriculum should develop skills and knowledge; it should encourage the principles set out in our Rainbow Values; produce collaborators, innovators, leaders and, above all, it should help our children to understand what it means to be human.
Our curriculum is organised into three areas: Discover, Explore and Create. Central to our curriculum are our Rainbow Values and British Values which underpin everything we do:
Working across three terms allows us to explore areas of the curriculum in greater depth. For this school year (2021/22), the autumn term will be the Discover term (with a focus on history), the spring will be the Explore term (with a focus on Geography) and the summer term will be the Create term (with a focus on The Arts).
All our projects are contextualised, culturally relevant and purposeful. Children work towards authentic outcomes and engage with critical audiences. Examples of project outcomes include exhibitions at museums, creation of memory boxes to share at a care homes, published brochures about the area available at Estate agents for new families moving into the community. We are committed to working in partnership with parents, Governors, and our local community to provide the best experiences we can to enhance the learning and development of each child.
