Our Pathway Curriculum
At Homerswood we teach a broad, balanced and rich curriculum. We use the National curriculum as a guide to ensure we develop the essential knowledge and skills that the children need to meet their year group expectations. We have developed an ambitious curriculum that has been designed by the pupils and staff which aims to create a learning pathway for all that inspires curiosity and develops resilient, confident, independent and happy learners for life; a growing environment that thrives on community spirit and partnership between pupils, families, staff and governors. Parents and Governors have also been consulted.
Our Pathway curriculum encourages our pupils to understand their learning journey from Nursery to Year 6. To support teaching and learning across the school, we use targeted programmes and scaffolding in order for all children to reach their potential. We have a spiral curriculum and ensure that learning is well sequenced which is built on day by day, week by week and year on year. We expect children to connect prior knowledge and skills to current learning.
Along the way the pupils will lay 'Footprints' in their memories by taking part in enriched activities. They keep these memories in a 'Pathway Pad' to cherish in years to come. This enables all children to have a shared experience regardless of their prior or current experiences whilst ensuring that we offer a personalised curriculum.
