Tubbenden Primary School

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is varied, broad and rich. We believe it represents the world we live in and provides our children with the experiences, knowledge and skills they need to thrive as they move through the 21stCentury.

Our curriculum is carefully linked to the National Curriculum and every pupil is taught in line with the National Curriculum expectations.

There are also aspects of our school which we feel enhance learning for our pupils and make for a unique Tubbenden Primary experience; these include

  • Specialist Physical Education teaching

  • Specialist Music and performing arts teaching

  • Additionally Resourced Provision for pupils with Severe and Complex needs

  • Outdoor and residential learning

  • Opportunities to become ‘Knights of Tubbenden’

In order for our curriculum to further flourish, there are key threads running through our topics as a backbone to how and what we teach. These ‘drive’ learning forwards and become the ‘drivers’ for Tubbenden’s creative curriculum.

Our three main drivers for our exciting curriculum are...

Inspiring curiosity                                 Wider Learning                                  Creativity

Inspiring curiosity – In order to learn effectively children need to be curious learners. Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to ask questions, seek out answers and become independent learners. Teachers have developed a curriculum that includes a variety of topics to engage and inspire the children. This is to ensure that the learning is meaningful and has a purpose. Where possible the teachers are making cross curricular links and improvements are being made each term to incorporate the Talk For Writing texts. This will enable the children to make links in their own learning.

Wider Learning - In today’s global world, it is so important to feel we are part of a local, national and international community – this is where the Wider Learning Driver plays its part. Children will
learn about the world around them and through the world around them. With Tubbenden’s extensive grounds, excellent location for links to London and a fantastic community with a wealth of expertise to offer and share, the children learn first-hand through a variety of experiences and locations.

Creativity – Children enjoy a variety of creative experiences within school providing a balanced curriculum where they all have the opportunity to excel. This is fundamental to the planning of engaging activities incorporating the creative arts within the curriculum.
