Hempnall Curriculum Vision
Our curriculum is designed to enable all children to develop knowledge, skills and understanding which are the building blocks for later life. Our curriculum encompasses not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but goes beyond the experiences of the classroom to ensure that our children are exposed to a range of opportunities that we can provide. Our aim is to enrich every child’s school experience by creating an environment where they are encouraged to succeed and be the best they can be. At Hempnall, cultural capital prepares children with the knowledge and skills for their future. The exploration of new skills and experiences help to nurture resilience, curiosity and creativity. The curriculum is further enhanced by our commitment to the school-wide learning powers that encompasses resilience, co-operation, self-management, curiosity, participation, independent thinking and team work.
The curriculum for each class is carefully designed to ensure coverage and progression across all subject areas; developing depth of knowledge and understanding together with opportunities for children to build on what they know and embed their knowledge into long term memory. In order to broaden the children’s experiences, visits, visitors and other opportunities are carefully planned to support and enhance learning. As part of planning our curriculum we ensure prior knowledge is re-visited and built upon to deepen understanding.
Our curriculum places our children at the centre and allows each child to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across all subjects. We strive to ensure that our children’s attainment in all subjects is in line with or above age-related expectations. We intend that all our children will be fully prepared for their next stage of education; ready to contribute positively to society as a whole.
