Brooklands Whole School Curriculum
Keeping you informed about what your child is learning this year is important to us. It gives you the opportunity to see how you can best support your child’s learning outside of school and also to see how we are making learning links across our curriculum.
The intention of our curriculum is evident through it's content. It provides your child with an ambitious, balanced, creative and broad curriculum that gives them a school experience that fosters intellectual curiosity and a lifelong love of learning. Our staff is comprised of both primary and secondary specialists, so we have the advantage of staff who are experienced at all key stages.
We are following our intended curriculum despite Covid-19 restrictions on maintaining year group bubbles in zones around the school. Wherever possible, pupils are being taught in specialist rooms for PE, Music, Art, Design Technology and Science. Our timetable reflects our whole school priorities and the needs of each cohort of pupils.
As well as academic content we aim to give your child opportunities to develop
character-building skills that will benefit them in every stage of their school life and beyond.
The long term goals for our curriculum are that pupils and staff will become confident, curious, creative and committed teachers and learners through collaboration and improved communication with each other. We measure the success of our curriculum through regular parental and pupil feedback as well as through liaison with other schools and outside agencies such as Challenge Partners.
Every pupil at Brooklands is an individual and we are confident that our curriculum will give them opportunities to be ambitious, articulate and resilient as well as having the benefit of specialised subject teaching to develop their enthusiasm for knowledge and practical skills. Our curriculum will ensure that your child will know more, remember more and be able to do more.
