Brindishe Schools’ Curriculum
‘The World Is My Classroom’
We live in a cosmopolitan capital, where communities must learn to respect, live and share with each other.
We live in a world where good mental health is fundamental to be able to thrive and we know that we need to look after our minds as well as our bodies.
We live in a technologically-driven world and we have a growing awareness of the effects of climate change and diminishing natural resources.
We live in a changing economic climate so we need to understand the value of money and how to make good decisions.
The world is smaller – connections between people and places are increasingly immediate and interdependent. We will need a variety of skills and attributes in order to aspire and make a positive contribution to society. We must prepare to adapt in order to be successful and seize opportunities.
Our curriculum is broad, creative and progressive enabling teachers to plan personalised and highly engaging learning, which questions and challenges all children - a curriculum which facilitates the combining and connecting of areas, through innovative approaches and which promotes children’s autonomy.
Subject Learning Journeys
Each subject in our curriculum has a learning journey which details the progression and the pathway that children at Brindishe take through each subject. This ensures that we are clear about the skills and knowledge that our children need by the time they leave the federation.
Subject Intent Statements
At Brindishe Schools, we recognise that an outstanding curriculum is based on three key areas: intent, implementation and impact.
Intent refers to what we teach and why we teach it. Implementation states what it looks like in practice and impact lays out what the outcomes will be.
What do we want our curriculum to achieve, how will this look in our classrooms and what will the outcome be for all children in Brindishe Schools?
Our curriculum overview ensure that children at Brindishe Schools are receiving a broad and balanced curriculum that is progressive throughout the years.
