Our Curriculum Vision
At Shotton Hall Primary School our ambitious curriculum meets and exceeds the requirements of the National Curriculum. It has been planned to achieve the best possible outcomes for children, regardless of their starting points. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and inspirational. It is regularly reviewed and revised to ensure it:
- builds upon children’s prior learning,
- provides inspiring learning experiences,
- develops interpersonal skills and builds resilience,
- helps children become creative, critical thinkers and highly effective learners.
Our curriculum is underpinned by three drivers:
1. Our curriculum nurtures and develops successful learners who:
- read widely and often with fluency and comprehension,
- are self-motivated, resilient and resourceful,
- can research and find information for themselves,
- can work cooperatively with others to achieve a common goal
2. Our curriculum helps our children become responsible citizens of our local, national and global communities. Our children:
- understand, value and celebrate our local community and its heritage,
- are responsible, respective and active citizens who contribute positively to society, please click here for more information about the charities we are supporting
- are aware of and are interested in global issues
3. Our curriculum helps children grow into confident, happy and healthy individuals by:
- building character and developing a sense of identity,
- supporting the development of physical and mental health, click here to find more information on our Happy-Centered Schools PSHE programme
- being holistic and celebrating academic, personal, social, emotional and spiritual successes,
- identifying our more able and talented children and supporting them in their chosen field,
- providing enriching and inspiring experiences
