At Dartington Church of England Primary School, we understand the importance of learning more, knowing more and remembering more, securing knowledge, practise and showing our dedication to become confident and flexible thinkers. We deliver all subjects in the National Curriculum but in a way which reflects our pupils, our community and our vision. We are currently revising our curriculum design, and the offer for the term is outlined in the Curriculum Booklets (below).
Our curriculum is the beating heart of our school and is rooted in John 10:10.
“I came that they might have life and live it to the full”
Within our Christian vision ‘together we grow, together we flourish’ our children will our children will develop a love of learning and be totally immersed in different worlds, cultures and times preparing them for the next stage of their education.
Our aim is to develop an inclusive curriculum that is both broad and balanced exemplifying our learning promise to develop the whole learner. To support the mental wellbeing of all children, we are planning a curriculum that ensures each child practises taking risks, learns from mistakes and perseveres towards their most ambitious goals. Our commitment to encouraging creativity as well as academic mastery is unswerving and I wanted to give you an update on where the school is on this journey.
