In our school we have high expectations of all our pupils from the youngest to oldest. Threaded throughout our curriculum, is an ethos which helps our children recognise that anything is possible through hard work and effort. It is so important our pupils know this.
Throughout their journey in our school, we intend to develop articulate, caring children with a thirst for knowledge. We want our pupils to be resilient individuals who are not afraid to take risks. Our children will know how to lead healthy lives both physically and emotionally and
embrace the culturally diverse community we live in and celebrate.
We are determined that by the time our children are ready to leave our school, they will be confident, successful students and role models.
This is achieved through our 5 principles which is explicitly shared with all pupils to help them become more confident and resilient young people:
I am creative
I am healthy
I am curious
I am empathetic
I am ambitious
We believe our curriculum should be relevant to children’s life experiences; reflect the diverse community Barnfield is part of, inspire and engage pupils in their learning, while enabling children to work collaboratively using their imaginations.
Our Curriculum is underpinned by Rosenshine’s 10 principles of instructions. To help the delivery of National Curriculum expectations we use the following schemes, which we adapt where necessary to ensure all children can access and are working towards being the best they can:
