Curriculum Vision - updated 2022
Millbrook Primary School Curriculum Intent Statement
At Millbrook Primary School we believe that all children can achieve.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual and as part of the wider school community.
Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as our children learn new skills that enable them to take an active role in events throughout the year.
The curriculum at Millbrook provides engaging learning experiences, this allows children to build resilience, confidence and independence. We believe that childhood should be a time where there are no limits to curiosity with a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. The impact of the Millbrook Curriculum will ensure our learners are equipped for the next stage in their life, enabling to make their own life choices and confidentlhy face challenges.
All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language. We provide a rich, challenging curriculum, which stretches all of our children. Staff are aware of children who have exceptional talents and gifts and monitor or track their progress carefully to ensure their academic potential or talent is continually developed.
We have high expectations for all pupils and are committed to ensuring our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.
Our inclusion statement emphasises the importance of providing an inclusive learning environment for all pupils including those with SEND. Additional information on this can be found in our policies: Inclusion, Equality and SEN.
Our aim for children is to leave Millbrook Primary aware of global opportunities where they have the confidence to communicate, make decisions and aspire to become lifelong learners. We intend our learners to be
- effective contributors
- confident individuals
- successful learners
- responsible citizens
- healthy and active
- safe and nurtured
- included and respected
- reaching their full potential
We have a carefully planned an ambitious curriculum that is planned and sequenced with cross curricular links. It is genuinely 'broad and balanced'. It takes account of our cultural capital. It is a working document and it is always being developed.
It looks back at previous learning and forward to new learning so that our children can make those essential links. The Millbrook Primary curriculum has been designed, developed and adapted to meet the needs of all our pupils collaboratively by all our staff.
The ‘seeds we plant today will grow throughout a child’s life’.
