Parkgate Primary School

Our Curriculum Vision

At Parkgate we want our curriculum to be:

Inspirational: an engaging theme to stimulate and motivate minds to learn

  • will develop the children’s curiosity
  • will capture the interest
  • means making it relevant

Responsive: reacting to the world we live in, the community we are part of, the class we are in and the people we are

  • respond to world and national events (current affairs, sport, culture, anniversaries), community and school events
  • includes opportunities for responding to questions and interests of those within the class (individual, group)

Flexible: doing our own thing in our own way for our children

  • will personalise the curriculum to be child centred and community driven
  • allows you to organise your own curriculum for your class
  • themes will be organised, based on how long the learning takes, across a day, number of days, weeks

Experiential: learning without boundaries

  • includes a trip to enhance the learning, a visitor to give greater knowledge, using the wider school environment, working with the local community, using a range of technology and access to specialised resources

Successful: learning together to fulfil our potential 

  • developing knowledge across all curriculum subjects
  • learning transferable skills across all curriculum subjects
  • making progress
