The Curriculum

Our Intent: 

Whether it's pretending to be an Astronaut in Reception, delving into the depths of Africa in Year 2, walking like an Egyptian in Year 4 or visiting a Stately home when discovering all things British in Year 6, our Green Gates curriculum promises to engage and motivate every one of our pupils. At Green Gates, we aim to provide a relevant and interesting curriculum, which develops the whole child and helps to create a love and passion for learning.  We have high expectations of children academically while understanding that their social, emotional, physical and spiritual development are just as important if they are to live happy and fulfilling lives.

At Green Gates, our curriculum offer is second to none. Staff have developed a tailor made curriculum, which follows the National Curriculum, but is also relevant to our children and the community in which we live. The curriculum is progressive and builds on the pupils’ knowledge and skills as they move through school. We continually review the curriculum to ensure we are providing the very best education for each and every child.

We firmly believe that memorable experiences, creative stimuli and intriguing hooks can motivate and inspire our pupils. Therefore, each topic begins with a ‘Hook Day’ where the children may experience a visitor or a trip out to help inspire a love of learning and get their learning off to an exciting start. To end our topics, each year group showcases their learning journey. This showcase can take many forms: a play, songs, discussions, workshops; and families are invited in so that our children can share their learning journey. 

We are incredibly proud of our newly written curriculum contexts which have been developed specifically for our children. Take a look at them...
