Our Curriculum

At Brougham Primary School we feel strongly that the curriculum needs to foster creativity and to be driven by what the pupils in Brougham Primary need. The drivers for our curriculum are: 

Possibilities To explore possibilities, to challenge stereotypes especially gender, to be the best they can be

Belonging To develop respect of each other, to know their place in the community and how to look after it.

Confidence Emotional and physical security, confidence, to know that failure is part of the learning process and to develop self esteem.

Initiative To be independent learners, solve problems, have aspirations for their future and good life skills.

These drivers ensure that wherever possible the curriculum is delivered in a way that explores these issues. We believe that the school motto “We care, we share, we learn” embodies this. Great care has been given to ensure correct coverage of the National Curriculum and that assessment has been built in.
