Our Curriculum

The Vision for the Bramley Curriculum



At Bramley we aim to equip pupils to make a positive contribution to society in the future through a rich, broad and engaging curriculum which inspires all pupils to learn through the acquisition of knowledge & skills with the school values of Love, Respect and Courage at its core.

The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of learning experiences that we deliver in order for school to be a magical place of learning. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, to help pupils become the very best that they can be.

At Bramley, our teaching and learning is focused on Nurturing, Growing, Developing and Delivering to ensure that our vision and values are woven into the fabric of the curriculum. We actively seek to grow a range of learning behaviours within our pupils to enable them to be successful not only in the classroom, but beyond.

We aim for our curriculum to be:

ASPIRATIONAL Support all children in finding who they really are. Foster a ‘growth mind set’ and model determination and perseverance. Allow and include opportunities for children to experience what success feels like. Motivate them to become passionate about things they never knew.
SATISFYING AND FULFILLING Plan, deliver and reflect on practice. Ensure that learning is ‘fun’ and that children are keen to learn more. Seek opportunity for children to learn about the world around them and maintain positive relationships.
PROBLEMATIC AND CHALLENGING Create structures and constantly assess children’s performance. Use and apply open ended questioning and apply high order thinking tasks that allow children to solve problems. Embed such techniques into the curriculum and make sure there is opportunity for children to use resources and engage in high order thinking tasks.
CREATIVE, CURIOUS AND INSPIRING; Ensure that learning is vivid and real. Develop understanding through enquiry, creativity, use of technologies and learning behaviours. Foster thinking skills to make learning interesting and inventive. Create an effective environment; embed learning skills across a range of subjects, using a varied approach and a variety of learning techniques to maintain a ‘love of learning’.
PERSONALISED, PURPOSEFUL AND RELEVANT Ensure both teaching and learning are well structured so that children know what is to be learned and how they learn best. Set clear targets, making every learning experience count. Develop confidence and self-discipline; ensuring children understand and are aware of the learning process. Generate enthusiastic and resilient learners who strive to exceed their goals.
INTERACTIVE AND COLLABORATIVE Embrace opportunity for children and teachers to work together. Make children active partners in their learning; sharing learning outcomes, using success criteria, reflecting on learning and giving feedback which enables them to understand what they need to do to be successful.
SUPPORTIVE AND CARING Provide an inclusive education within a culture of support and high expectations. Work together to nurture and support children, ensuring they feel happy, safe and cared for in school.
