With the new National Curriculum being introduced by the Government from September 2014 we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils.   Here at Brailes School we provide a creative curriculum based on a topic approach.

Our new curriculum will be delivered through six imaginative learning themes for each class each year, which provides a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning.

We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.

We also use a rigorous assessment framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These key skills are tied to activities and are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
