Curriculum Statement of Intent
We have high aspirations for all of our children and we strongly believe that primary education is not just about results and league tables, nor is it just a stepping stone to secondary school; it is so much more than that. At Roe Farm Primary School we develop skills, knowledge, attitudes and encourage our pupils to be active participants in their education. We want every child to have a positive, memorable learning experience in their journey through school whilst also making excellent academic progress.
We provide an engaging and stimulating curriculum that has been bespoke designed based on current research and best practice to meet the needs of all learners. We have ensured that it offers a broad range of varied, challenging and enjoyable experiences that work together to increase pupils’ cultural capital, narrow the language gap and inspire all learners to reach their full potential.
Curriculum drivers shape our curriculum breadth. They are derived from an exploration of the backgrounds of our pupils, our beliefs about high-quality education and our values. They are used to ensure we give our pupils appropriate and ambitious curriculum opportunities. Our curriculum drivers are to ensure our pupils develop:
BLS (Basic Life Skills)
Drive, ambition and pupils that are ready to learn
A range of experiences that builds on cultural capital
Supportive, caring and respectful relationships
It is our goal to ensure that each pupil is offered a curriculum that is broad and balanced, meeting their individual needs to achieve the best they can. We believe that to be successful learners, pupils need support from school and home and help developing the metacognitive skills to guide their own learning in to the future. This partnership is shown through our school slogan,
“Together We Make a Difference.”
