The Curriculum at Outwood Primary School
At Outwood Primary School we believe that education is a route to spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical and mental development and thus the well-being of the individual. The values that underpin that education are valuing ourselves, our families and other relationships, the wider groups to which we belong, the diversity in our society and the environment in which we live.
Education must enable us to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of the rapidly changing world in which we live and work.
The School Curriculum
At Outwood, we provide a rich, deep and humanising global curriculum. When combined with the knowledge, skills and values the children will develop, we enable our children to fulfil their potential as global citizens of an ever-changing world. This approach celebrates with the children the world we live in, offers ongoing experiences to develop their cultural capital and aims to create a pedagogy that enables children to shape their futures, adapt to the inevitable challenges they are going to face and that gives children an understanding and a “botheredness” about the world they live in. This is in line with, but also goes beyond, the requirements set out in the National Curriculum.
