Curriculum at Cirencester Primary School
At Cirencester Primary School we believe in children having access to a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum. We have a strong focus on teaching children important skills in both English and Maths whilst providing children with a range of exciting experiences through a topic based approach. Topics will include an element of Global learning, Health and Wellbeing and outdoor experiences, with our School Values running through everything that we do.
Curriculum topics are all based around an inquiry question which the pupils attempt to answer by the end of the topic through their learning. Some examples of these questions are: ‘Men vs Women – who made the most difference?’ and ‘The Greeks – great or ghastly?’ Within each topic, all pupils learn basic knowledge about the subject matter as well as being provided with many different opportunities to advance and deepen their learning such as by applying learnt knowledge, explaining and comparing their ideas, debating with their peers and designing new ideas.
Through our curriculum we also aim to prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life in modern Britain. We actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
