Greenlands Primary

Our Curriculum

We promote the highest aspirations for our children to become self-motivated, independent learners who are well prepared for later life and thrive in modern day society.

At Greenlands we have sought to develop a curriculum that addresses, embraces and celebrates the diverse makeup of our school. 

To enable this we have taken a development of skills approach.

Our curriculum supports the British Values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. It has been mapped lesson by lesson against the British Values agenda. Vocabulary for each topic is identified and explicitly taught to address the recognised ‘word gap’ that exists for many of the children that attend Greenlands Primary School. The continued revision of whole school concepts and subject specific themes, alongside regular revisiting of previous learning will enable children to know more and remember more.

What do we want the children to know and learn?

Our curriculum reflects the ambition of the National Curriculum in developing knowledge and skills. It is designed particularly to:

  • develop speech language and communication,
  • raise personal ambition,
  • improve fine and gross motor skills,
  • develop a positive sense of self and respect for others,
  • give rich experiences to develop knowledge and understanding of the world
  • solve problems
  • promote reflection, collaboration and respect
  • accurately articulate their thoughts and opinions through the proactive acquisition of technical and non-technical vocabulary.

Equality and SEND

We ensure that our curriculum is inclusive of SEND and ensures that there  are equal opportunities for all children in our school. Our provision allows pupils with learning and physical difficulties the opportunity to follow a broad and balanced curriculum specifically tailored to develop life skills and to give pupils self-confidence through their learning thus enabling them to maximize their potential and to work independently. All children have full access to the curriculum, although where required appropriate adaptations are made to suit the needs of individual pupils, for example: 

- differentiated resources

- use of ICT

- extra adult support 

- different ways of evidencing learning 

- interventions

- pre-teaching of vocabulary 

We promote the highest aspirations for our children to become self-motivated, independent learners who are well prepared for later life and thrive in modern day society.
