Curriculum Intent Statement
The aim at Thrybergh Fullerton is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, resilient and successful, life-long learners.
Through the implementation of a broad and balanced curriculum encompassing music, PE and enterprise we aim for our children to have high aspirations to make an active and positive contribution to their school, their community and the wider society, now and in the future.
In our school there is a strong focus on developing children’s moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding. The building blocks of our curriculum ensure that children are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to prepare them for life in modern Britain and for them to be tolerant, accepting and respectful young people and adults who can be successful global citizens.
Thrybergh Fullerton provides a highly inclusive environment where learners enjoy their education. Pupils at all levels are helped to achieve their potential. All pupils regardless of their starting points are encouraged to expand their skills and knowledge through rich, broad curriculum opportunities. Our focus on nurture and the ‘whole child’ is key to the success of our curriculum where children are taught to be happy and healthy both physically and mentally.
Thrybergh Fullerton’s focus on curriculum development is carefully sequenced to ensure coverage and progression. It provides pupils with memorable experiences, in addition to diverse and rich opportunities from which children can learn and develop a range of transferable skills and gain access to a range of opportunities and experiences. These experiences in-still a sense of ‘awe and wonder’ in our children, that are so deficient when joining our school.
We are a reflective school and continually strive to improve our teaching and learning in order to provide the best possible life experiences and chances for our children.
Fluency in reading and vocabulary development are key drivers in our curriculum. We believe in teaching our children to communicate effectively as this, and reading, are vital tools which enable our children to access a broad curriculum and develop the cultural capital needed to thrive and be successful.
Our children are taught to enjoy 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10) and sieze every learning opportunity. The impact of our curriculum ensures that all children are ready for their next stage in life.
