Academy Curriculum Intent

At Brambles Primary Academy we foster a love of lifelong learning through creating a stimulating and happy learning environment, where all pupils will have the skills and resilience to think and learn for themselves regardless of socio-economic background. Progress will be at the heart of everything we do. We provide a safe, caring and stimulating learning environment, with a variety of educational experiences in which each pupil will realise his or her full academic, social, and cultural potential.

We ensure that high levels of oracy are built into curriculum through a diet of language rich environments so that all pupils are supported to access demanding work, through appropriate scaffolding and support, primarily through vocabulary rich teaching.

Our curriculum ensures pupils experience a broad range of subjects in an exciting, innovative and knowledge rich curriculum. This curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and towards its clearly defined end points. We apply the key theories of cognitive science to plan for concepts, sequencing and spaced repetition in order to help pupils retain learning in the long term memory.

Our curriculum promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and understanding, and a love of learning. This curriculum approach is designed to provide our children with rich, deep and durable learning that is transferrable across a range of contexts. We will continue to develop an offer dedicated to providing the best for all pupils. As a school we actively seek to involve and promote the local and wider community wherever possible. This will equip them with the knowledge, skills, understanding behaviours and attitudes necessary for success in their next stage of education, their future employment and for their adult life within an ever changing world.
