With the arrival of the new National Curriculum for schools in 2014, we have taken the opportunity to organise our curriculum to meet the needs of the children of Buckshaw Village in readiness for their 21st century lives.
We believe that children learn best through experience and that there are certain experiences which we want all our children to have the opportunity to be part of whilst they are at Trinity. We examined what every child must do whilst at Trinity – our ‘non negotiables’, what skills we want our children to have developed by the time they leave Year 6 and experiences we would like them to have as Curriculum Outcomes (see attached).
We have then organised our new curriculum with children culminating each half term with a curriculum outcome or experience.
We believe that our vision of a 21st century curriculum, alongside a wide variety of extra curricular experiences, will enable our children to experience ‘life in all its fullness’.
Parents will receive a half termly/termly overview of the curriculum their child will be studying and are given the opportunity to discuss this at each parent’s evening.
