Park’s Curriculum

At Park Primary School, we want to equip every single child with the knowledge, confidence, skills and empathy that will allow them to have rich, successful and fulfilled lives. We are proud to provide our children with an ‘irresistible curriculum’ which fosters their curiosity, inspires their creativity and nurtures them into knowledgeable and conscientious young people. By the end of Year 6, they are ready to take on the world!

Our curriculum is like the road map for our pursuit of knowledge. Our desire is that everything we teach is well-thought out, ambitious and intellectually challenging.

To be literate is a form of power. We are empowering pupils by developing their ability to read with deep understanding, to speak clearly and confidently, and to write expressively and with flair. Whether children join our school with English as their home language, or whether they learn the English language for the first time here with us, we ensure they are all provided with the teaching and nurture they need. Through our curriculum, pupils develop their ability to read, write, speak and comprehend, so that they can seize the opportunities of a rich lifelong education with both hands.

Across the different areas of our curriculum, we introduce children to the fascinating complexities of the world around them. We explore the science behind the questions that perplex us – why are we orbiting the sun; can we create our own robots; how did the leopard get its spots – and use our knowledge to ask even more probing questions. We learn about the events and the people from history who have shaped the present; we use this to consider our society today, and then ask ‘what about tomorrow?’ We bring the world into our classrooms: celebrating the cultural and religious diversity that enriches our Park community, and learning about the planet as critically-informed global citizens. Our curriculum has expression at its heart; our arts provision (in its various guises) gives children the space and inspiration to make and to create; our corridors ring to the sounds of our musical instruments and every child develops confidence through working with our dedicated performing arts teacher.
