Our Curriculum – Rokeby Park Primary
We believe our pupils have the right to an inspiring, challenging, creative and fun curriculum. The school curriculum has been developed to ensure it builds on pupils’ prior learning and prepares them for the next stage in their education and life in modern Britain. We do this by ensuring our pupils have access to lessons that help them to develop the basic skills of reading, writing, spelling, grammar, mathematics and IT, alongside all the other subjects in the National Curriculum.
We always encourage our pupils to ‘aim to be the best you can be’ and this drives the ethos of the school and our drive to improve outcomes for our pupils. Our aim is to develop well rounded, polite, ambitious pupils who know right from wrong, are tolerant and respectful so that their futures will be the best they possibly can be.
It is our intent that the school curriculum will support our pupils to develop knowledge, skills and attributes for learning, life and in the future, work. We ensure the curriculum is suited to the needs of the pupils and their community and background. The curriculum extends beyond the classroom and includes experiences at lunch time as the pupils and staff sit together to eat and have the opportunity to develop social and speaking and listening skills.
We also ensure that pupils have opportunities to take part in a range of activities such as sporting events in school and in the local community, experience a range of workshops and plays and have the chance to take part in a range of educational visits and after school clubs.
Ensuring the curriculum meets the needs of the pupils helps to ensure they are motivated to learn and enjoy coming to school.
