At Judith Kerr Primary School, we embrace a creative curriculum encompassing all core and foundation subjects. This helps us deliver a high standard of teaching and learning for all our pupils.
Our aims are to:
- inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people;
- provide pupils with a comprehensive knowledge of Britain’s past and develop their understanding of significant locations in the wider world and key events in world history;
- equip pupils with the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop a rounded perspective and judgement.
As well as studying and learning about the wider world and significant historical events, the children’s learning makes full use of the school’s locality. This provides a rich and varied landscape in which they can learn through direct experience and first hand investigation. As they progress through the school, pupils become more aware of the process of change, the diversity of societies, and develop a greater understanding of their own identity.
Our children experience a varied and creative range of activities from art, drama, poetry, ICT and design technology. Older pupils take responsibility and share their learning with their younger counterparts, for example by reading with them or accompanying them on trips.
