The good school curriculum should remain under constant review, ever evolving in response to children’s needs and interests, ever adapting to the strengths and passion of those delivering it, ever reflecting the values and ethos of the school and ever reacting to the community, society and world in which we find ourselves. The good school curriculum is not fixed, it moves with the ebbs and tides of research, policy, need and resource. The good school curriculum is in a state of constant flux.
At the heart of the work we do with our pupils is developing in them a growth mindset philosophy. This means we believe that everybody can learn and succeed with the right attitude. Courage, tenacity and self belief are crucial to learning and can be developed by how we recognise and reward success.
