Our Curriculum

 

At Garrett Hall, the key aim for all our teaching and learning is to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn, to enjoy and to achieve. We encourage the best possible progress and the highest attainment for all our pupils. Our curriculum builds on pupils’ strengths, interests and experiences and develops children’s confidence in their capacity to learn, be reflective and work independently and collaboratively becoming responsible young citizens.

Garrett Hall's Curriculum Rationale

 The core of our curriculum is based around the guidance issued by the Department of Education (DfE) in the following two documents:

 

The Early Years Framework (September 2021) - Nursery and Reception

 

The National Curriculum (2014) – Year 1 to Year 6

 Our curriculum is taught through term long ‘Themes’ that are used to tie together the different subject areas, where possible. This approach has many advantages including giving a focus of interest for the children. Core subjects English, Maths and Science, are also taught discretely to ensure mastery and depth of understanding.
