At Crockenhill Primary School, we believe learning should be exciting! Our ultimate aim is to provide a highly enjoyable, creative curriculum, which not only incorporates the National Curriculum but the needs, thoughts and ideas of every learner in our school and community. Our creative curriculum ensures that all of our pupils are motivated, engaged and enthused about every learning experience, inspiring them to become lifelong learners.
At Crockenhill our teaching and learning take place within a topic-based curriculum approach. This means that wherever possible we group our subjects around a topic. This topic-based structure has been effective in enthusing staff and pupils because of the many creative opportunities for links across subject areas. It covers the National Curriculum points of study in a way that makes learning interesting and engaging for all of our pupils. The design of the curriculum takes into account the needs of all pupils.
It values their diversity and allows them to make excellent progress in their learning. The curriculum we have developed is based on an annual cycle where each curriculum year is divided into distinct topics. We also have themed weeks that focus on additional priorities. In the school. Eg, Safety Week, Poetry Week and Science week.
