We passionately believe, as reflected in our curriculum aims (which link directly to Branfil’s core values), that the curriculum needs to be much broader than just covering the National Curriculum. Our staff team is dedicated to providing a wide range of experiences and opportunities so children can learn about themselves in a safe and supportive environment and develop a love of learning.
Please see the document below for an overview of our curriculum at Branfil.
L = Love
Develop a love of learning through children understanding the purpose of each lesson then engaging in collaborative activities and memorable experiences
E = Explore
Develop curiosity through active learning, where children ask questions and learn from their mistakes, which are vital skills in an ever-changing world
A = Aspire
Develop children’s independence and ownership of their learning so they aim high and continuously develop
R = Respect
Develop children’s respect for themselves, each other, and the environment so they celebrate diversity and difference in a democratic community
N = Nurture
Develop children’s understanding of mental, spiritual and physical health, including strategies to employ when facing challenges in these areas
Curriculum aims for all subject areas can be found on the Subjects page and curriculum aims for additional areas can be found below.
