THE CURRICULUM AT PRIMROSE HILL
“The purpose of our school is to develop the whole child socially, emotionally, intelectually, physically, spiritually and morally in a safe, caring and supportive learning environment.”
‘Curriculum’ is a word describing all that goes on in school, formal and informal, which children experience.
At Euxton Primrose Hill, children follow the subjects of the National Curriculum, with the addition of Religious Education, cross-curricular elements and optional extra-curricular activities. The spirit and ethos of the school, together with the management of the planned curriculum, the organisation of the school and the classroom, all contribute to the whole curriculum. You can find out more about the curriculum at Primrose Hill below.
For further information about your child's learning each term, please see our curriculum letters that can be found in the class pages section of our website. At the start of the academic year, your child's new class teacher will also hold a 'Meet the Teacher' session, where they will talk you through your child's curriculum and set out our expectations with regard to reading targets, homework and general class routines. If you are unable to attend these meetings for any reason, a copy of the class teacher's presentation can also be found in the class pages section of our website.
It is our aim that our curriculum should be both supportive and progressively challenging, so that each child may develop to his/her full potential. We encourage children to take an active part in their own learning, to become independent learners and to achieve high standards.
Underlying our entire curriculum is the belief that children learn better when enjoyment enables understanding.
“We will emphasise the positive achievements… in their outside activities”
Extra-curricular activities are recognised as important aspects of school life giving children the opportunity to extend their experience in new areas and develop skills and particular talents.
All staff are involved in activities and this gives them the opportunity to work with children from other classes. This extends the relationship that exists between children and staff and contributes towards the family ethos of the school.
If any parents wish to share their talents in school, please come and talk to us about it.
