Creative Challenge Curriculum
Staff of the Federation have collaborated closely to devise a new and inspiring Creative Challenge Curriculum. This creative curriculum has been implemented with a view to improving further the quality of our teaching and learning, with a strong emphasis on challenge for all our children. We endeavour to ensure our children are motivated and inspired to want to learn by providing a broad and balanced curriculum with sound stimulating cross curricular links and skill based learning, with an emphasis on progression.
The Creative Challenge Curriculum has a themed approach. Staff have devised themes which we feel “speak to our children, our parents and our wider school community”. Core Values are embedded within our teaching and learning and formally planned for throughout the academic year (See British Values website link)
Through these themes, children can appreciate the links between subjects, which further develop their understanding. We have reflected our changing world with themes like “Going Global”, and our commitment to our teaching of modern foreign languages with our theme “Viva Espana.” Our own communities are celebrated in the theme “In my Liverpool Home.”
Teachers plan units of work, within themes, emphasising Maths, English, ICT & Computing and creative links so that all dimensions of learning are explored and developed.
We have devised our curriculum on a 2 yearly cycle cross curricular approach (see Creative Challenge Curriculum website link). Our Creative Challenge Curriculum is a working, developing document, whereby planning and teaching and learning is continually evaluated, monitored and revised in light of subject monitoring.
At our schools we strongly promote self-respect for all in our school irrespective of race, creed or gender. Care will be taken to ensure that resources do not present stereo-typical images, rather role models from diverse backgrounds and cultures reflecting the multi-ethnic nature of our society.
