At RFPS, our curriculum is underpinned by the values and knowledge which we are equipping pupils with to succeed in life beyond their primary education. Central to this are the key academic, personal and vocational skills which prepare our pupils to become life-long learners.
We ensure our curriculum celebrates and draws upon the experiences, differing perspectives and interests of our diverse community. We also challenge stereotypes and educate our pupils to respect each other’s cultures and beliefs.
We believe in helping engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
Our curriculum challenges children to “aim high”, whatever their starting points, learning essential knowledge and skills which our pupils will acquire sequentially throughout their time at RFPS.
Learning from each other and “achieving together” allows our pupils to widen their perspective of the world around us. We believe in introducing children to the very best that has been thought and said and helping engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
Teaching a broad and balanced curriculum, where all subjects are valued, is fundamental in the development of the whole child. We chose to deliver part of our curriculum through topics which allows our children to explore an area in depth, making links between subjects and provides them with memorable experiences which will stay with them for life.
We know that our pupils learn best when they are immersed in their learning, therefore we plan our curriculum using the sequence ‘engage’, ‘develop’, ‘innovate’ and ‘express’. This takes the children on a meaningful learning journey. We provide opportunities for pupils to express their knowledge in a way which allows them to recall, revisit or further investigate areas of interest and as a result we keep learning at the heart of everything that we do. We want all of our pupils to experience and “celebrate their successes”, building their confidence and creating life-long learners.
