Curriculum Intent Statement
Our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow.
At Bowes Primary School the curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers. We strive to create a school that encourages children to explore, discover and dream.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our diverse school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond primary school. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We use our Bowes Values (resilience, collaboration, respect, responsibility, success and safety) to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.
Community involvement is an integral part of our curriculum, inviting families and visitors to facilitate learning new skills and sharing experiences such as assemblies, curriculum outcomes, showcases, performing arts events and festivals, as well as international visitors to view the use of our state of the art technology.
Children leave Bowes with a sense of belonging to a community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
We follow the 2014 National Curriculum. Please click on the tabs on the left for more information about each subject. The parents guide provides additional useful information that you may find helpful.
