Foundation Curriculum

Foundation Subjects

The aim of our foundation curriculum is to open up a range of learning that promotes personal growth and development and can be applied to pupils’ future learning or employment.  It is organised around half-termly themes that inspire enthusiasm for learning, ensure achievement for all and support pupil wellbeing and happiness.

At the beginning of each theme, we carefully plan a practical and immersive experience to help pupils become engrossed in their learning, whilst developing and enhancing a natural curiosity for the topic.  All lessons are planned with tasks aimed at supporting pupils to think for themselves and to solve problems in real life situations. Through this thematic curriculum we weave subjects together to create an exciting and engaging learning journey; exploiting the full range of subjects outlined in the National Curriculum.

We encourage pupils to develop behaviours for learning that can be applied at every phase of their learning, asking questions and seeking answers for the simple joy of knowing!
