The Glenfrome curriculum is designed to stimulate creativity, develop skills and broaden knowledge across the National Curriculum subject areas. It enables children to question, investigate, evaluate and have hands-on experiences.
Topics start with an 'Incredible Intro' – a visit, activity or trip which starts the topic with a bang. Recent topics have included Jamaica, light and dark, the Egyptians, rivers and Eastville in the second world war.
Children learn about each others’ beliefs, languages and backgrounds, exploring and celebrating them together. Children come to school to learn, to improve their life skills and understanding of the world, and to grow. We believe that children and adults learn from everything they see and do and from everyone they come into contact with in their lives. We don't just go through the motions – we really challenge conventions and traditional methods and if there's a better way to help children learn, we do it that way.
The curriculum is the means by which the school achieves its objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order go into the world as resourceful, tolerant, creative individuals…true global citizens.
We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures. We value the spiritual and moral development of each person, as well as their intellectual and physical growth.
We value the importance of each person in our community and their heritage. We aim to teach and develop an understanding of the diverse heritage of our community through localised learning projects. We organise our curriculum so that we promote co-operation and understanding between all members of our community.
We value the rights enjoyed by each person in our society. We respect each child in our school for who they are, and we treat them with fairness and honesty. We aim to enable each person to be successful, and we provide equal opportunities for all the children in our school.
We value our environment, and we aim, through our curriculum, to teach respect for our world, and how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own. Outdoor learning opportunities are interwoven throughout our curriculum in all subject areas.
We value and foster the partnership that we have with parents and carers and believe their voice and support to be a crucial contribution to the learning of their child.
