Our Curriculum Intent:
At Northbury Primary School the curriculum is designed to encourage our children to think globally and act locally. Our school motto ‘Achieve and Enjoy Together’ reflects the vision we have for our curriculum which aims at raising children’s interest in the wider world, provide first- hand learning experiences, allow children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
We recognise that every child is unique; we celebrate and welcome differences and diversity in our school community. The ability to learn, at Northbury, is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values.
We strive to provide opportunities which are enriching and enhance learning and believe that all children should be happy, enjoy learning, have no limits to their curiosity and learning opportunities and a thirst for new and exciting experiences.
We believe a growth mindset ethos promotes positive attitudes to learning and reflect the values and skills needed to encourage responsibility for learning and future success. Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year.
We want children to leave our school with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
