Learning at Southgate Primary

Our Southgate Curriculum

At Southgate, we pride ourselves on a child focused curriculum ensuring excellence, pride and ambition is at the heart of all we do.

Our curriculum is planned around a series of themes which maximise cross-curricular links whilst ensuring there is a clear progression in the learning of key skills. A relentless focus upon the acquisition of basic skills underpins our whole curriculum, for without the ability to read and write and apply basic mathematical concepts to problems, children will be unable to access any other form of learning. It is important to us to that our curriculum has structure, routine and rehearsal so that our pupils are familiar with the systems in place, enabling them to take risks in a safe environment.

Below is our Curriculum Rationale which incorporates our school values of 

Aspiration

Resilience

Respect 

Co-operation

As a school we have identified three curriculum ‘drivers’ which thread through all of our learning themes. These have been carefully selected through consultation with staff, identifying the needs and interests of the pupils

Possibilities: In a rapidly changing world, we will equip our children with the skills and qualities needed so they can embrace life’s challenges and opportunities with confidence. Our curriculum will open children’s eyes to new possibilities so they can develop aspirational attitudes and understand how to achieve their full potential, ensuring each child attains the highest academic achievements of which they are capable. 

Making a Difference: As citizens of the 21st century, we recognise the importance of our children using their skills, knowledge and beliefs to not only benefit themselves but also impact positively on the wider community. Our curriculum embraces equality and diversity, and celebrates the rich diversity of modern Britain, our children will positively impact on the world around them

Adventure: We believe that it is important for our children to understand that life is more than a virtual/digital world. We are passionate about their health and well - being and will therefore provide opportunities for the children to develop resilience and manage risk. Our curriculum will excite children about the real world, engage them in rich hands on experiences, which in turn will develop their imaginations, through exploring and having fun.
