At New Swannington we continually strive towards developing and maintaining an engaging and purposeful curriculum which aligns with the National Curriculum.
We believe that our children deserve and need us to provide more than just the National Curriculum. Life has so much to offer and our children have so much to learn and experience. With this in mind we work to prioritise the things we want our children to experience during their time with us. As a backbone we use the Chris Quigley "Essentials Curriculum" to build our curriculum upon (you can download its content below).
We have thought very carefully about the needs of the children at New Swannington and we have identified four ‘drivers’ which we feel need to underpin our school’s curriculum in order to give our children the skills, knowledge and personal attributes that they need to become lifelong learners and fulfil their own aspirational goals. We use these 'drivers' to underpin the development work we undertake in all areas of school life and to ensure our curriculum offer is enriched and personalised to our children and their families.
