A curriculum that leaves nothing to chance!
At Holwell, we deserve the right to a high attaining, aspirational curriculum where we are able to reach our full potential. Our curriculum provides us with opportunities and experiences that will inspire us to be lifelong learners and successful members of the community.
At Holwell, we aim to provide a curriculum that leaves nothing to chance .
Our broad and balanced curriculum extends past the walls of our classroom and school and aims to develop lifelong learners and successful members of a community. Our curriculum was designed with the aim of to ensure that all pupils receive an equitable curriculum which provides each pupil with access to the resources that fit their circumstances, meets their needs and allows them to learn and thrive.
The subject curriculum has adequate and comparative time allocated to each subject as outlined by the National Curriculum and has been carefully mapped to ensure it provides a sequential and progressive approach to learning. Our curriculum follows the statutory requirements set out by the government whilst aiming to inspire each pupil to achieve their very best. We have considered our half-termly topics carefully to ensure they meet the interests and needs of our pupils and each lesson is planned, ensuring it is accessible to all. Resources and activities provide enriched experiences to give a progression of skills and learning throughout the school.
Our character curriculum extends the children’s learning beyond the national curriculum and classroom learning and ensures that we are developing our children into successful members of the community who demonstrate positive behaviour traits.
The curriculum is underpinned by the school’s Core Values (respect, independence, cooperation, resilience, aspiration and courage) and these are taught on their own and through all areas of the curriculum, including assemblies. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the British values are weaved through our curriculum in every lesson, ensuring that pupils have a clear understanding of the values that underpin our British constitution. Through the curriculum, pupils learn skills necessary to succeed in each subject, whilst developing their personal and social skills.
