Curriculum Intent

Curriculum Intent

At New Close School our children are at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is to create an environment where children develop a love of learning, a thirst for knowledge and aspire to be the best they can be. Therefore, we plan for our curriculum to engage, be relevant and meet the needs of all those within our school.

Our learners are supported to develop their skills and become responsible, independent and resilient both within school and for the society they will be part of in their future.

 

All of these values form our New Close Expectations of

Pride

Responsibility

Resilience

Respect

Aspire

Positivity

Our curriculum design is sequential and progressive, building upon skills and knowledge taught and revisiting concepts frequently. Subjects, where possible, are woven into cross-curricular topics. Here the topics are relevant to New Close children and provide a context to their learning, making links to the communities within our school and the wider Warminster community. Where this is not possible subjects are taught discretely in blocks of learning. Within this we aim to provide our children with a rich bank of curricular and non-curricular experiences.
