The Brookmead School Curriculum

The Brookmead Learning Experience
At Brookmead we are continuously evolving a relevant and meaningful curriculum which enables all our children to:
  • enquire, explore and discover;
  • be excited by their learning;
  • find what they’re good at;
  • ask questions;
  • rise to a challenge;
  • be curious;
  • wonder and be amazed;
  • be proud of their achievements;
  • think for themselves;
  • want to be part of the team;
  • be happy;
  • be confident;
  • care about others;
  • be themselves.
We seek to provide our children with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding to help them prepare them for life and work in the twenty-first century. This means that we need a curriculum that will also enable our children to be effective communicators, possess practical life skills, be reflective, thoughtful and open to new ideas, show tolerance and understanding of others, celebrate diversity and be part of the community.  We are ambitious for all our pupils and are committed to ensuring that all children achieve high standards in reading, writing, and mathematics and aim to inspire them through an exciting and relevant curriculum experience that embraces outdoor learning, sport, music, technology and the arts. We wish to enable children to develop confidence, independence, and an enthusiasm for learning that will stay with them throughout their lives.

The National Curriculum 2014
The National Curriculum outlines what must be taught in Key Stages 1 and 2 (Years 1-6) in maintained state schools in England from September 2014.  It provides details of children's statutory curriculum entitlement in English, Mathematics and Science and across 10 further subject areas: Art and design, Computing (formerly ICT, or Information Communication Technology), Design and technology, Geography, History, Languages, Music, Physical Education, PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and RE (Religious Education).  

The Brookmead Curriculum portal is intended to provide parents with information how the Brookmead Curriculum builds on the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum across all subject areas to provide a rich and distinctive learning experience for our children.
