Our Broad and Balanced Curriculum Offer

Our curriculum is built around six BIG DREAMS, with our core values sitting at the heart. Our core values are deeply embedded into the fabric of our school and we use them as the bedrock for all curriculum developments! 

Our curriculum BIG DREAMS are:

  • Use high-quality texts as the beating heart of everything we do, we develop a genuine love of reading so that our children read widely and often for information and pleasure.
  • Deliberately, explicitly and systematically teach oracy to develop confidence and articulacy so that our children are empowered to succeed in life.
  • Build cultural capital by using the vibrancy of Liverpool so that our children learn from and respect other cultures and appreciate what they have.
  • Systematically teach and expose our children to vocabulary to foster a love of language in order to develop word consciousness across all curriculum areas.
  • Enrich pupils time in school with memorable and unforgettable experiences, ensuring equity for all.
  • Provide a safe and inclusive environment so that our children have no limits to what their ambitions are…if they can DREAM it, they can do it!

We implement our BIG DREAMS through three main curriculum drivers, including our Broad and Balanced Curriculum offer. 

Our Broad and Balanced Curriculum offer focusses on: the wider foundation subjects including History, Geography, Art and Design, Design Technology, Physical Education, Music, Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish), Computing and Religious Education.

Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
