The intent of our curriculum is to provide the very highest standard of education, ensuring the children flourish academically, for life in the 21st Century, within a broad and balanced curriculum. We strive to provide an equitable experience for all our students, regardless of need; inclusion is at the very heart of everything we aim for. We celebrate diversity and utilise the skills, knowledge and cultural wealth of our supportive community, while nurturing the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, particularly through our developing assemblies programme.
Our curriculum ensures that academic progress, knowledge, creativity and problem-solving are highly valued and embedded through every year groups’ learning, enhanced by our Sandford Top Twenty; opportunities to enrich and inspire our learners. These, coupled with our overarching core values of Respect, Creativity and Aspiration, as well as physical development, emotional well-being and mental health, are key elements that support the development of the whole child and promote a positive attitude to learning and life.
At Sandford Primary School, we are constantly striving to improve our curriculum and develop it further to build on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress from EYFS, through each Key Stage.
Our pupils are supported to acquire the requisite skills, confidence and self-esteem to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education and to make a positive contribution to society as they grow up.
