Our School Curriculum

At Burrough Green CE Primary School, our intent through the curriculum is to:
  • Broaden horizons

  • Improve aspiration

  • Improve communication and language including vocabulary

  • Foster equality and diversity and promote wellbeing
At Burrough Green CE Primary, we believe that our curriculum should be broad, balanced, rich and relevant, meet the needs of all children whatever their ability or background and help to develop the whole child. We constantly adapt our learning journeys to meet the needs and interests of our pupils. 
 
We implement our curriculum through the Early Years Foundation Stage Programme of Study, The National Curriculum and our school curriculum. This ensures that our pupils progress in both key knowledge and skills throughout their subject areas. 
 
For the majority of our subjects (Science, History, Geography, Art and Design, Design and Technology, Computing) , we use the Cornerstones Primary Curriculum. This allows us to choose imaginative learning projects (ILPs), or knowledge rich projects (KRPs) that are cross-curricular and can be chosen to inspire and motivate children at different ages, reflecting the interests of each class. It also promotes a more holistic view of the pupils' learning, whilst continuously developing key skills and key knowledge through the subjects. 
 
Each ILP/KRP lasts for one half-term, and is split into 4 parts:
1. Engage – to provoke children’s curiosity using interesting starting points
2. Develop – to provide creative opportunities for learning
3. Innovate – to enable children to apply their skills, to be creative and to make choices independently
4. Express – to reflect and share their learning with a wider audience
 
Please see the individual curriculum pages for how each subject is implemented as well as key resources for pupils and examples of learning.  
 
If, after looking at the curriculum maps below, as well as our subject pages, you would like to know more about our curriculum, please contact the school and we would be happy to discuss it more with you.
