A Rich and Engaging Curriculum

At Hornbeam Primary School we offer children a rich and engaging curriculum that is designed to develop the skills and personal attributes they will need to succeed in their future lives.

Using our mission statement "Learn to Love Learning to Live Life Better" as inspiration, teachers design topics around the National Curriculum Programmes of Study that aim to develop children's life skills and give them experiences that they will remember into adulthood.

The Hornbeam Curriculum Tree

  • The roots are our ethos. We want the children to love to learn to live life better.
  • The trunk is what we value. We want the children to have purposeful learning and to be resilient learners. This is what will be at the heart of our key skills.
  • The branches are our values. We want the children to be creative thinkers. We want them to experience real life learning and become independent and meta-cognitive children.
  • We also want collective teacher efficacy where everyone shares the same beliefs.

At  Hornbeam Primary School we believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that promotes a love of life-long learning. We are proud to use the National Curriculum as a starting point for an inclusive and varied learning experience for our children. We enrich it by making our curriculum real and purposeful for the children and are committed to developing the whole child.

Our children have the opportunity to be

  • artistically creative,
  • physically active
  • and academically challenged.

Our aim here at Hornbeam is to teach the children how to be curious and inquisitive about their education. We inspire the children to be ambitious and teach them how to be resilient in order to fulfil their true potential. We encourage everyone to adapt their learning to new situations and reflect on each learning journey they take and to be proud of their achievements.
