Our Curriculum Intent:
To improve all children’s learning outcomes, by outstanding teaching and partnership working, within a supportive, caring, Christian school environment; promoting excellence, resilience and determination in the acquisition of knowledge and skills. With the well-being of our pupils, staff and parents at the forefront of all we do.
Our intent is to enable learners at all levels to have the courage and faith to create, explore, and be curious. We aim to bring people together, to build on a Christian and moral ethos, demonstrating kindness and respect to all.
At Polebrook School we offer a broad and balanced range of subjects in line
with the expectations of the National and Early Years curriculum. We value
and embrace all subjects within the National Curriculum and have a strong
commitment to the arts.
English and Maths are central to our challenging and varied curriculum. They
are taught as distinct subjects but are also central to our thematic units of
work. We follow the Read Write Inc phonics scheme. Inspirational themes are used to deliver the foundation subjects such as Computing, Science, Art, Dance, Music, PE, Design Technology, History and Geography. This creative and innovative approach to learning is key to developing independent and innovative thinkers who embrace challenge and
think creatively. It motivates our children to succeed and promotes
consistently high standards of achievement and behaviour across the school.
As a Church School, RE is important to us and is taught in line with the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Northamptonshire.
All of our educational provision is underpinned by the whole school approach
to inclusion, equal opportunities and diversity. We embrace Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural values and place importance on teaching children about their own well-being and life experiences within the wider diverse culture of Britain. We teach our children to keep safe and how to adopt healthy lifestyles.
Our church ethos fosters a caring atmosphere where we celebrate and share
achievements and build empathy and respect for each other.
