‘Outside of education our planet is facing challenges that only the best kinds of thinking will be able to fix. Teaching our children the best that has been thought and said only takes us so far. It takes us into our rich and fascinating past. But the future will demand the best that has yet to be said, yet to be thought and yet to be done’
Our dilemma led curriculum, encourages children and adults to ask and answer questions relating to relevant problems we face in the current world we live in. We engage children of all ages in deep thinking about the past, present and the future. We aim to create learners who are architects of hope and who have been equipped with the capacity to think, apply knowledge, empathise, weigh up evidence, consider consequences and make informed choices. Each year group has an over-arching emotive theme for the year which creates opportunities for developing deeper thinking and is led by compassion. Links are made term by term between units of work, but also the spiralling nature of the curriculum means links are made year group to year group, creating cohesion and progression both in subject knowledge and complexity of thought. The over-arching concept behind everything we do is the LEAP Curriculum which incorporates; Language and Communication, Meaningful Experiences, Amethyst Learning and having the Power to change the world.
