Curriculum Statement of Intent

 

We are an inclusive school where children and adults work together in an environment of respect. We aim to provide an education that will give the children at Rood End the opportunity to explore and develop their own values and beliefs. Children are also taught to have a positive, caring attitude towards others. We expect high standards of personal behaviour and an understanding of the diversity and richness of the different backgrounds of our school community. We celebrate differences and different kinds of families. Support is given to children through mentoring, our school Counsellor and our Family Support Worker.

 

The school offers a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum covering all areas of the National Curriculum and our aim is to provide programmes of study that meet the needs, interests and abilities of all children. We do our utmost to maximise success for all children by giving them the best teaching and learning experiences. Extra-curricular activities include sports, music and art. They are provided by members of the school team and outside sporting agencies with additional external tuition for specialisms such as yoga or djembe drumming. To make learning engaging and accessible we celebrate events such as World Book Day or have theme days where the children can dress up, make models or use role play to explore new topics. To help children develop resilience and an understanding of their world we use dance, music and drama to explore themes such as making the right choice, celebrating different cultures and collaboration.

 

Principles of Teaching and Learning at Rood End

 

  • Active learners who understand what they have achieved and know what to do to make progress
  • Children who are enthusiastic and motivated to learn and who are not anxious about the next steps in their learning
  • Learning is clearly sequenced so that prior learning is retained and gives children a secure foundation to move onto more challenging work
  • All pupils are able to access the curriculum
  • High expectations for all pupils in and outside the classroom
  • Staff are knowledgeable about the children they teach: their interests, strengths, areas to develop and their life experience
  • Relationships built on trust so that children can flourish regardless of their life experiences
