At Moreton Morrell C of E Primary School, we believe that every child can excel through pride in their own abilities and ambition to seek new challenges in their learning. Our curriculum has been designed to ensure that all of our pupils are given the opportunities to shine academically and to flourish physically, artistically, culturally, socially and emotionally.
We believe that our curriculum should be seen in its widest sense- as the planned learning experiences which including formal learning opportunities as well as events, routines and enrichment opportunities that take place outside of the classroom. Permeating our curriculum are the Christian values of our school- Kindness, Love and Forgiveness which are taught in conjunction with Fundamental British Values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Tolerance of Different Cultures and Religions, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect.
At Moreton Morrell C of E School, we are committed to providing a curriculum that is broad and balanced, which meets the needs of every pupil, allowing them to reach their full potential. We provide our pupils with opportunities to gain essential knowledge, skills and understanding which will enable them to flourish and be life-long learners.
Pupils at Moreton Morrell School are encouraged to make connections, apply and reason. This includes teaching the children how to build relationships at all levels within school promoting; respect, tolerance and constructive relationships amongst all members of the school community, which are underpinned by the Christian Values of Love and Forgiveness.
Learning is rooted in the needs and context of our school community. We aim to remove barriers to learning by valuing diversity, actively challenging prejudice and intolerance, by celebrating success at every level and by helping pupils to recognise their own potential. A breadth of learning is achieved both within and beyond the formal curriculum. Inspiring pupils to be socially, morally and politically aware, to care for their environment and to contribute positively to the community in which they live.
Our curriculum encompasses the formal requirements of the National Curriculum and provides pupils with a range of learning experiences beyond the classroom, which inspire our pupils and helps shape their futures; ensuring that they are life long learners and responsible citizens. The curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure coverage and progression through exciting, broad and balanced learning experiences. We believe it is vital to teach a range of subjects allowing our teachers to creatively form links between subjects. The curriculum provides pupils with memorable experiences, giving them rich opportunities from which to learn and develop a range of transferrable skills.
As part of our carefully mapped out curriculum, we ensure we provide all children with opportunities for experiential learning, through activities such as residential visits, extra-curricular sports, arts, music clubs, taking part in music and drama productions, music lessons in school, and language lessons for all year groups and an opportunity to develop life skills such as cooking. All lessons build upon prior learning to ensure that every child achieves and makes progress. Pupils understand and can articulate the purpose for their learning, how to refine their work, the links between the subjects or topics and the relevance of these to their everyday lives. The acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills is carefully planned to create a purposeful and exciting learning journey for every child, ensuring that key milestones are met throughout their primary education.
