Ettington Primary School Curriculum Statement
Building on the theological concepts that God created the earth and everything in it, including humans, we provide opportunities to appreciate God’s creation of the world and how EVERYONE was made in God’s image (Imago Dei) and loved, valued, celebrated and represented. As a school, we aspire to live out God’s plan for all creation to flourish. We believe in providing our children with varied opportunities to use and develop the gifts and talents they have been blessed with, to ensure they embrace “Life in its fullness” (John 10:10).
At Ettington, our curriculum is based specifically around the needs of our children and we aim to give them the best chance in life to become a key part of society as they grow up.
Through our Christian ethos, children will learn first and foremost to be tolerant, understanding members of the community who display kindness above all else to all people. We aim to provide the children with a knowledge-based curriculum that also builds key skills and enables the children to become resilient learners.
Our curriculum is planned by our staff with the National Curriculum as the foundation and each year group progressively builds the schema for each of the subjects as they move through the school. We also love to tie in our topics with exciting, quality books that inspire the children and bring those subjects to life for our pupils.
Our Knowledge Organisers share with the children the sequential key knowledge they will learn and the key vocabulary they will need to develop their understanding throughout that unit.
