Introducing Springfield’s Curriculum Drivers!
In order for our curriculum to further flourish, we decided as a school that having key threads running through our topics as a backbone to how and what we teach was essential.
These would ‘drive’ learning forwards and become the ‘drivers’ for Springfield’s creative curriculum.
After careful consideration, as to what would be the most beneficial to our children, we decided on four main drivers for our exciting curriculum and they are:
Possibilities - Initiative - Diversity - Growth
This helps pupils to build aspirations and know available possibilities for their future lives.
This helps pupils to grow as independent learners, who are not dependent on adults to learn.
This helps pupils to live harmoniously in a multi-cultural and inclusive environment, whilst respecting all and appreciating everybody’s gifts and talents.
This helps to instil in our pupils a mindset that they can continue to learn and grow in all areas of their lives through focus and hard work.
We believe that all children should feel successful and experience the feeling of accomplishment in a wide range of areas. Our curriculum therefore gives pupils an inspiring mix of academic and personal development; it gives a careful balance of the core and foundation subjects; physical wellbeing and mental wellbeing are all valued, understood and prioritised through our personalised curriculum design.
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, along with a well-planned and structured programme of personal development, underpins all of our work and is monitored as closely as academic subjects.
Our tailored curriculum balances the requirement for pupils to reach the national expectations in core subjects with our wider curriculum aims of providing a full spectrum of thoughtful and enriching experiences. As a result our pupils are inspired to success.
