All children are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and suited to their needs. At Sicklinghall, we aim to make this curriculum stimulating, vibrant, enjoyable and focused on each child developing the skills and knowledge required to be successful in later life. We aim to enable each child to reach the highest standard through providing a challenging yet supportive learning environment in which all pupils feel safe and secure to take risks and rise to challenges.
The core subject skills of reading, writing and mathematics are vitally important and are taught daily within the context of our recently designed curriculum. This curriculum, which is organised into topics, provides relevant learning opportunities for pupils of all ages, as part of which they develop independence, questioning skills, the ability to investigate and ask questions. In addition to receiving a sound grounding in the ‘3 Rs’, pupils develop a keen interest and appreciation of the world around them.
