Our curriculum, held together by our Branch Ideas and supported by our school values and our Core Skills Curriculum, incorporates the statutory requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Our focus is on developing the whole child whilst enabling them to achieve high standards across the curriculum including the core subjects of English and Maths. Our curriculum supports and challenges them to be engaged in subjects across the Foundation Curriculum so that they can explore who they are, and where their passions, skills and talents lie.
Our school values its place within the Binley Woods community, and our curriculum ensures that children are able to play a part in their community through engagement with local businesses and the community itself such as, the choir at Christmas, involvement in community events and charities, and enterprise activities.
Each child in our school has an entitlement to curriculum enrichment. A broad spectrum of whole school enrichment days and events are planned into the school year. Children also have the opportunity to visit a range of cultural and educational places such as the theatre, museums, galleries, a nature reserve, science centres, historical buildings, religious places of worship and of course our woods. These are vitally important as they enable each child to engage in experiences and develop a bank of memories and points of reference that support them as young learners.
Our whole curriculum and provision at Binley Woods intends to grow every child and give them the knowledge and skills they need across the whole curriculum, to engage with the world as they grow up. The curriculum develops their independence, resilience and their own values, so that they are prepared to move on to their secondary education with knowledge, understanding and the confidence they need to keep on growing as individuals.
