Why we teach what we teach(our curriculum)
The Staff and Governors of Queenswood Primary School and Nursery believe that each child must have equal access to a rich, broad, balanced, and differentiated curriculum. The curriculum must be well matched to pupils’ ages, abilities, interests, aptitudes and individual needs so as to ensure that it is inclusive of all children. The curriculum needs to ensure pupils consistently achieve highly, particularly the significant proportion of disadvantaged pupils attending our school. Therefore our ambitious curriculum is designed to help pupils know more and remember more , and provide them with the cultural capital (the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said, and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity.)
We carefully plan our curriculum to build a sequence of increasingly deep knowledge as our pupils progress through school.
