Rickley Park Curriculum Intent 2019-21
At Rickley Park we are determined to create an inclusive culture of learning through our broad and engaging curriculum. We want all children to be challenged in their thinking to enable them to become lifelong readers and learners. Our curriculum is knowledge rich and skills focused to provide the children of Rickley Park with the best opportunities possible. We use big questions to develop curiosity and excitement, challenge to promote resilience and we empower them to become respected citizens, to enable them to make valuable contributions locally, globally and to contribute to our world’s sustainable future.
Our children also learn manners and develop empathy as well as how to keep themselves and others safe in this rapidly changing world. They develop respect and responsibility during their time at Rickley Park and they also learn independence, which is crucial for lifelong success.
We teach English through highly focused talk4reading lessons and children learn how to write using the very successful Talk4 Writing. Our Power Maths curriculum ensures all children are challenged in arithmetic and develop solid reasoning skills and our PSHE work is woven through all that we do. Our wellness focus is constant, with our enriched curriculum offering opportunities to develop skills in sports, mindfulness, yoga, cookery, crafts and much, much more.
