Empowering our pupils sits at the very heart of our curriculum design. We are passionate that every child who leaves any of our schools does so with a complete sense of self; with an ability to make informed decisions that reflect their own values and beliefs; a knowledge of where they sit in the world and the impact they can have. Curiosity is nurtured at every turn as we recognise that we are preparing our children for a future that will be vastly different to our current reality – a child who understands themselves will be well equipped to make choices that impact positively on themselves, others and their environment.
Building and reflecting our communities is an integral part of our thought process and we look to ensure our pupils recognise where they sit and the impact they can have on a local, national and global scale. Tolerance and an ability to recognise the views of others sit centrally to our curriculum ethos. In teaching children explicitly to articulate their views with respect, we recognise that every small moment and interaction can support them in developing a responsibility for their choices; where this sits with their own values and their impact on the world around them.
Our curriculum seeks to develop ambitious attitudes for every pupil to place them in a position whereby their future choices are theirs to make. In considering a clear progression in skills, knowledge and experience, we equip children to be aspirational and the best possible version of themselves.
At Yeoford, we see our curriculum as a collaborative journey that is responsive to the needs of our children. By knowing and nurturing, we seek to develop our pupils confidence and resilience and in turn foster a love of learning which enables our pupils to be ‘ready to learn’ and ‘ready to live’. Our curriculum seeks to broaden horizons, ignite passions, uncover talents and make connections by being visible beyond the classroom and in to our community. We are a small school with a big heart who are invested in our children’s tomorrow.
