Our 'curriculum tree' summarises our approach to teaching and learning at East Harling Primary School and Nursery. Our curriculum is more than what is taught in the classroom but embodies all of the learning that takes place within our school. We base our curriculum upon our core values and skills which form the roots for teaching and leaming in our school. This is supported by our 'taught' curriculum (the tree trunk), made up of the national curriculum (which we are required to teach) and our school curriculum (the additional knowledge, skills and understanding that we choose to add to our curriculum). Our approach to teaching and learning is what brings the curriculum alive for the children and allows them to flourish (just like the canopy of the tree!).
Like any living thing, our curriculum tree is constantly growing and evolving! There will be times when it will need pruning (as we are constantly reviewing and developing our curriculum to ensure that it meets the needs of our children) and others when it will need to be fertilised (so that different areas can be given additional focus or a boost!).
