Through our curriculum at Renhold VC Primary we go above and beyond to ensure that all pupils to flourish and achieve their full potential and enjoy a rich and varied range of highly engaging and memorable learning opportunities that develop a love of learning across all curriculum areas. Our curriculum is first and foremost child-centred so all learning is relevant to our pupils. Our curriculum represents the whole of our learning community and provides a wide range of opportunities for our pupils to be able to relate to their learning.
We seek to make creative links between curriculum subject areas, making learning enjoyable and relevant for our children. We promote the development of thinking skills and positive learning behaviours to equip children to be resilient, independent and motivated learners. Much of the children’s learning centres around cross-curricular topics. Lessons and activities are designed to encourage children to enjoy and seek a challenge, to view mistakes as helpful learning experiences and to not set limits on themselves.
