Cutthorpe Primary School Curriculum
We endeavour to provide an environment for each child in which they can develop to their full potential. In providing a safe and secure place for the children, they can grow in confidence and tackle new challenges as they arise.
At Cutthorpe Primary School, the National Curriculum has been adapted to meet the specific needs of the children at the school, many of whom are high attaining children. The curriculum looks to meet the needs of the whole child in terms of staying healthy, feeling safe, enjoying their education and making a positive contribution to society. The ethos of the school promotes the education and wellbeing of all of the children.
The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development of all of our pupils. It is an enquiry based curriculum employing a question(s) at the heart and starting point for each topic covered within a subject area.
Further questions are initiated by the pupils, which form the stem of the learning. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave, developing their cultural capital and preparing them for life in modern Britain.
We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they can each achieve their true potential.
