Here at Discovery, we ensure that our curriculum enriches the lives of all of our children and that we cater for all needs and learning styles. As a school, we have developed our bespoke curriculum to match the needs of the local community and we aim to give our learners a well-rounded and balanced education. By providing the children with this, we know that we are giving them the solid foundation off which they can build a successful future and have a lifelong love of learning.
We have built our curriculum on three key principles: equality, diversity and promoting the value of education. Whether it be following the adventures Jane Goodall in Year 2 Science, learning how to play goalball in Year 4 P.E lesson or exploring 10th Century Baghdad in Year 6 History, these drivers are threaded through everything that we do. By having these cornerstones, we believe that not only will the children have the abilities to flourish as learners but also as citizens.
As well as having a broad and balanced curriculum, we also make sure that the way in which deliver each and every subject is as engaging and as exciting as possible. We regularly have visitors and visits to enhance the children’s learning experiences in addition to curriculum subject days, which help to create a real buzz around each topic. We are very proud of what we offer here at Discovery; so proud in fact, that each class teacher Tweets families everyday so that you don’t miss out on all the fun! Because call us crazy, but we believe that learning and enjoyment go hand in hand.
