Our Curriculum Intent
As a school, we understand that a strong curriculum is essential for our children's future success. That's why we've spent the past few months working hard to develop a curriculum that is rich in knowledge and provides our children with access to the best possible content. Our curriculum is designed to be ambitious and exceed the standards outlined in the national curriculum, ensuring that our children have a solid foundation to build upon as they progress through school.
At Maple Grove, we're crafting a curriculum that promotes long-term learning, focusing on building a strong vocabulary and understanding of the world around us. Our approach is designed to help children progress towards mastery, drawing on the latest research in memory and learning to ensure they can remember and apply what they learn for years to come.
We recognize that every child comes to us with unique experiences and abilities, which is why our curriculum is designed to be accessible to all children. Our curriculum is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts, and values and is enhanced through school trips, visitors, and cross-curricular-themed events. We aim to provide first-hand learning experiences, encourage language and communication skills, and help develop reflective thinking about learning.
At Maple Grove, we want our children to experience a love of learning and leave with the confidence and skills needed for future success. We aim to promote positive attitudes towards learning, encourage independence and social skills, and give our children the tools they need to become lifelong learners.
