At Gorefield Primary Academy the curriculum is designed to:
- Recognise children’s prior learning,
- Provide first hand learning experiences,
- Allow the children to develop interpersonal skills,
- Build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
We challenge the children with high expectations in all areas of learning and in the development of life skills. Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives.
The curriculum is driven through our "connected learning journeys" which children travel through.
We use our Learning Powers to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success. Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we embrace local history, traditions and life-styles, whilst ensuring that aspirations for the future are promoted.
Children leave the academy with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become aspirational learners.
We engage with parents; encourage family learning opportunities and provide a curriculum that is relatable for parents, children and local families. Opportunities to be part of different exciting and engaging experiences are used to add to the learning experiences of our children
