At Gunter Primary School we believe that our School Curriculum should be broad and balanced and is underpinned by aims, values and purpose. Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum, but there are many other opportunities that make up the wider curriculum. These are designed to inspire and challenge all children, prepare them for the future in a complex world and aid them in their strive for excellence.
We believe passionately in developing the whole person and giving our children ownership of their learning. We pride ourselves in ensuring that our curriculum is exciting, relevant, stimulating and challenging and provides equal opportunities for all children to achieve their full potential. Our curriculum is rich with first-hand purposeful experiences and is designed to be flexible and responsive to individual needs and interests. We support our children in becoming ‘aspirational’ – aiming high – in order to make the most of their learning opportunities and we believe in an active partnership between school, pupil and home.
Our curriculum has been designed in consultation with all staff, parents and governors. It encompasses the National Curriculum 2014, as well as being continuously developed to meet the needs of our children. Cross-curricular themes are developed where links enhance & expand the children’s studies. The principal subjects for each theme are shown in our Curriculum Maps (see Creative Curriculum and Extended Curriculum pages), although other subjects will often be included especially English & mathematics – these opportunities are detailed on our Core Curriculum pages.
If you require further information relating to the Curriculum we teach, please speak to your child's class teacher.
