Breadth of Curriculum

Picture 1 Year 6 - STEM Day making Polymers

At Rodborough Community Primary School we are continually striving to provide the best quality teaching and learning for every child, in every class, every day.


Learning and teaching is based on a creative approach to the National Curriculum.  Please do look at our termly topic plans for each cohort which show how cross curricular links are made, providing a broad and rich learning context.


Learning is planned using our Rodborough Curriculum Skills Maps for each cohort to ensure coverage of objectives and skills from EYFS to Year 6.  You can look at these skills in more detail by clicking on 'Curriculum Maps' below.


Our aim is to bring learning to life by  linking our curriculum to the real world.  Learning at Rodborough goes beyond the classroom as our pupils experience a wide range of trips, 'hand on experiences' and visitors to school.  We believe in making learning fun and engaging.


Underpinning all aspects of our curriculum are:


(i)  Our Rodborough Learning Powers (designed by children) aimed at ensuring all our children become life-long learners through:




(ii)  Our Rodborough Values, directly linked to the 'British Values' which ensure that as a school community:


We value and respect uniqueness, listening to the views of individuals and promote respect for all cultures

We value the spiritual and moral development of each individual, as well as their intellectual and physical growth.

We value the importance of each individual in our community and the wider world, planning our curriculum to promote inclusion, co-operation and understanding among everyone in our community

We provide equal opportunities for all individuals, striving to meet their needs and ensuring each person can be successful

We value the environment.  Through our curriculum we aim to involve everyone in our school community looking at ways we can take care of our world, not only for ourselves but for future generations.


The Children in our school have designed their own celebration stickers for when they display these values and wording which can be accessed and explored at greater depth in an age appropriate way.




So what are our key aims at Rodborough School?


We want our curriculum to enable all the children to become:


Enthusiastic and successful learners who make great progress and achieve or exceed their potential

Positive, confident individuals who know how to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives

Responsible, respectful citizens who can work and co-operate with others and make a positive contribution to society
