Inspiring Bright Futures Together

Creative Curriculum

Creative Curriculum (History/Geography/Art & Design/ Design & Technology)


Teachers plan high quality, stimulating, creative and inspirational learning topics which are aimed to interest and motivate pupils. Each topic has either a history or geography focus and aims to develop knowledge and skills, building on previous learning.

Pupils engage in purposeful and contextualized learning experiences, in and outside the classroom. Teachers provide a range of memorable experiences that stimulate the interests of pupils in a particular theme or concept.

Pupils have opportunities to develop and master key skills, subject knowledge, research techniques and independence. They become industrious learners making sense of information and experiences, leading to sound understanding and progress. Pupils develop their knowledge, understanding, key and subject skills required to progress their learning and attainment through quality differentiation, focused learning tasks and high quality relevant learning experiences.

Finally, pupils cement their learning through shared reflection with peers and other adults and are able to suggest next steps of learning. Teachers discuss, review and support individual and group evaluations using their observations and evidence to make assessment judgements.


The school has achieved ArtsMark (silver standard) in recognition of its provision for creative learning.
