At Harrington Junior School we use a challenge curriculum approach where pupils are encouraged to ask questions to shape their learning. The aim is to foster proactive learning, a love of learning and a chance to link learning and skills in order to achieve success.
Our curriculum is broad and balanced, designed to give our pupils a twenty-first century education and equipping them with skills and attributes such as resilience and independence in order to allow them to grow into becoming active, positive citizens.
Our pupils have:
- the opportunity to learn independently and with others
- opportunities to take on different roles for learning
- the right to participate in their learning and to ask questions to explore and guide their learning
- time to apply skills in literacy, maths and IT to other subjects
- the requirement to listen to others and to be respectful at all times
- the right to be safe, healthy and valued as individuals
We believe our curriculum should be progressive to build upon the skills the children acquire through their learning. We use a creative challenge curriculum approach encouraging pupils to ask questions to expand their interest and understanding. We overtly link learning - across the year group and as pupils move throughout the school. This provides a broad, deep and relevant learning process.
Our key learning skills are:
- teamwork and leadership
- problem solving
- presenting our learning
- staying positive, aiming high
