Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum and the way in which we deliver it, instils a passion for learning in all our pupils and equips them for successful lives beyond our gates. We consider Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) and the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of our pupils to be a priority.

Simply put, our curriculum is intended to teach children the essential knowledge they need in all curriculum areas and to equip them for successful lives beyond our walls, opening doors to the future of their choice – whatever they may be!

We believe that the National Curriculum gives children an excellent foundation for learning however our school curriculum goes way beyond this and represents the framework through which we impart the core body of knowledge that our children will need.

Our ambition is for Gorsey Bank pupils to develop a full appreciation of the world in which they are growing up. Realising this intent will mean that they feel a sense of awe and wonder about the vastness of human creativity and achievement.

As such we attach great importance to helping all pupils understand the challenges and opportunities of the world we live in – as well as the history of it – and to use the knowledge they have acquired to discuss, debate and challenge the status quo which allow them to explore it for themselves and ultimately leave it a better place.
