At Rowde we offer a curriculum which is rooted in high-expectations and ambition for all our pupils, and which is fully interwoven with our vision and values and our Christian ethos. Our primary goal is to deliver richly connected knowledge and skills which equip our pupils for their futures, in education and in life.
Our curriculum is planned sequentially, with key knowledge, vocabulary and skills mapped out to a granular level, ensuring both the teachers and the pupils are clear with what they are expected to learn, how they will learn and crucially, why it is important to learn too.
Through our curriculum, we aim to broaden the children’s knowledge and understanding of the wider world, providing academic rigour in English, Mathematics and Science. Our pupils should also have opportunities to experience and express themselves through arts, music and design, as well as participating in high-quality sport and P.E, alongside Worship and a daily focus upon our vision and values.
Our curriculum is based around key texts for each year group in every term. These texts are studied as part of our whole-class reading sessions, which we call Book Club. These books have been carefully aligned with the various history, geography, science and art to create a highly connected series of lessons, meaning children can make strong connections between subjects.
We want our pupils at Rowde to have great pride in their school. Our curriculum therefore promotes the importance of spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of all pupils. In summary, ur curriculum sits at the heart of our motto – Learn, Grow, Love.
