Creative Curriculum Statement
At Brettenham we have an inclusive curriculum with a holistic approach that is relevant to all learners and reflects the communities we are part of. The creative curriculum is driven by our school values (Harmony through Honesty, Awareness, Responsibility and Respect) so that learners develop a broad and deep understanding of key skills in curriculum subjects as well as becoming spiritually, morally and culturally aware of the national and global society we live in.
Our topics have engaging entry points that involves hands-on experiences or an educational visit to bring our learning to life. Each topic will conclude with a celebration showcasing the children’s work. This gives real meaning and value to the children’s work. The children then have the opportunity to reflect on their own learning and celebrate their progress.
Our curriculum is further enhanced through special curriculum events such as Arts Week and Business Week. We also have class assemblies throughout the year which are designed to bring the children's learning to life and enables parents to experience the learning that happens at Brettenham.
We aim to inspire children to become reflective, engaged and excited learners. Our pupils are stimulated to ask questions and have enquiry minds. We aim to develop each child to be independent and to have a growth mindset. Our children recognise that failure and making mistakes is part of the learning process, encouraging them to take risks. Children learn that struggle is often a necessary stage to powerful learning. Each child is equipped with transferrable life skills that promotes a resilient and responsible attitude towards learning.
Our classrooms are always bustling with creativity and enthusiasm for learning as our curriculum prepares children to become good local, national and global national citizens of the future.
