Curriculum statement

At Corbett, we are committed to creating an environment where children love their learning and where the whole school community works together to make learning irresistible, surrounded by a nurturing Christian Faith.

Through our curriculum, we strive to develop the skills, knowledge and learning attitudes of our pupils, so that they may become the best that they can be.

Our Christian values help children to develop their social and moral code, as they build their sense of uniqueness and self-worth as individuals. We believe all children deserve the opportunity to nurture their individual talents and to achieve their true potential. We aim to encourage children to develop their understanding of their local and national heritage and their role in modern Britain. We encourage them to embrace all that multi-cultural Britain has to offer them and develop their understanding of the global world, within which they are citizens of the 21st century.

Every day, we give high priority to teaching the fundamentals of reading, writing and maths, to ensure that all pupils acquire the basic skills for learning and life. These skills are used and practised across other subjects, through learning challenges. We teach the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, using a wide range of strategies. We give children opportunities to work on their own, in pairs and in groups.

It is important to us to provide a broad range of exciting, relevant and creative opportunities that enrich our children’s learning. These include “wow” events, trips, visitors, outdoor learning in our school grounds and links with our parish church.
