As a Church school, our curriculum is based on Global Learning. Essentially, education for a fair and sustainable world, where our children learn to live life in all its fullness. This fullness involves developing academically, physically, socially, spiritually, morally, culturally, and artistically. Our curriculum is the means by which we engender this development and ensure that our children receive their fair share of the rich cultural inheritance our nation and our world affords.
Our intention is that through this marriage of values and cultural capital, children are suitably equipped to make sense of the increasingly globalized, complex and rapidly changing world in which they live. That they leave Elm C of E being able to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact their own actions can have on others. Our young people are growing up in a world that is flooded with information, opinions, ‘alternative’ facts and ‘fake’ news. It is, therefore, essential that our learners have access to an education, evidenced in information and ‘real’ news that enables them to engage with, consider and understand global issues.
Our holistic and cross curricular approach to learning exposes our children to rich real-life experiences, inside and outside of the classroom, developing a deep contextual understanding, a love of learning and commitment of knowledge to long term memory. Extended themes in integrated teaching, highlight relevance to ‘today’ ensuring children develop a rich vocabulary, alongside the essential knowledge, skills, attitudes and dispositions which enable social mobility and improved emotional and mental wellbeing.
Our curriculum map has been produced using up to date research into how children learn. We have carefully considered where to position the experiences, skills and knowledge we believe our children need, in order to be successful on their learning journeys. We have taken the 2014 National Curriculum as our starting point and linked the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as The Skills Builders Framework led by Early Enterprise.
The SDGs engage learners with pressing national and global issues that often transcend country borders and affect us all. The Skills Builder Framework ensures everyone will build the essential skills, experiences and aspirations to succeed.
