Our Southgate Curriculum

At Southgate Primary, all curriculum planning is based on 3 core drivers, supported by a thematic curricular approach which fulfils and deepens the National Curriculum. 

We aim to develop a Curriculum for life which combines interpersonal and academic skills together with a deep appreciation for the international world around us. 

Our curriculum aims to develop well-rounded, global citizens, who have a thirst for learning - a child who relishes challenges, embraces their mistakes as part of the learning process, values the importance of effort, responds carefully to feedback and takes inspiration from others. This will help them to achieve, not only with us, but also in their future lives as adults. 

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 whcih they are capable. 

 

Dream big

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 ourselves but also impact positively on the wider community. 

Our curriculum embraces quality and diversity by experiencing entrepreneurial challenges and celebrating the rich diversity of modern Britain. We hope our children will positively impact on the world around them. 

World

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.

A place where excellence, pride and ambition is at the heart of all we do.
