Our curriculum



At Brookmans Park School we want our children to develop a love of life-long learning.  We follow the National Curriculum and underpin all learning with the development of the key principles of Building Learning Power (resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness, relationships and risk taking) to ensure that all our children are equipped with the learning habits to thrive in the 21st Century.


As we have a high proportion of children who attain highly, we have developed all our learning sequences to ensure that they are active, engaging, enriching and challenging.  We want to develop curious, confident and independent learners who are able to face difficulty and uncertainty calmly, confidently and creatively.


See our Curriculum Policy for further details


We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they make good or better progress and achieve great outcomes both personally and academically.


The aims of our curriculum are to:

  • Promote good physical and mental health and well-being and an awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Promote high standards in reading, writing and mathematics.
  • Enable children to be confident in the use of ICT
  • Enable children to be aware of the importance of and participate in the arts and related cultural themes
  • Promote spiritual development and enable pupils to develop moral sensibility through carefully taught values
  • Provide equality of access to ensure all pupils make progress across all areas of the curriculum.


The Curriculum is planned effectively in Phases (Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2) on a two-year rolling programme, providing continuity and progression across the school.  Over the two years, all of the National Curriculum is covered in each Phase.


Units of work from different subjects are carefully planned so that complimenting units are covered in conjunction with one another – this inter-disciplinary approach to teaching and learning ensures that children develop secure knowledge and skills.
