My Place in the World
Our curriculum aims to nurture in our pupil’s a curiosity about the world around them – to ignite within them a real passion for learning. We strongly believe in bringing learning to life and offering all the children at Camp a curriculum that is exciting, purposeful and relevant for the world that they live in. It will enable them to grow, both in the knowledge and understanding they have, but also into the responsible citizens they need to be in the future, to take up their place in the world.
PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of our society. Through our bespoke whole school approach, we support the children to develop intellectually, socially, morally and spiritually. In an ever changing society, we provide our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community.
Weaving through the heart of our curriculum are our three curriculum drivers: Global and Local Community; Spiritual and Moral; Environment. We use the drivers to underpin the learning and experiences we provide at Camp, in each term and in every year group, and our curriculum offer is enriched by these consistent foci. They drive our intention to develop in all our pupils their understanding of “My place in the world”.
Global and Local Community
We want children at Camp to be aware of the wider world and have a sense of their role as a global citizen. Children will participate and contribute to our school and local community as well as recognising that they are part of a wider global community. We want children to be explicitly taught how their actions can have a positive impact on the world. They will respect and value diversity, learn about social justice, challenge stereotypes and be willing to act to make the world a more equitable place to be.
Spiritual and Moral
We want the children at Camp to demonstrate a deep respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values. We believe that by establishing a strong moral code and a focus on individual well being, it will have a positive impact on the way children view the religious and cultural diversity in other people’s lives.
We want children to learn in our beautiful school outdoor environment and make use of our extensive grounds and allotments to connect with nature. We want them to care about environmental issues that affect them and the world around them. Our children need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to make decisions that will impact on the local environment and the planet as a whole. A think global, act local approach is built into our curriculum at Camp and through our commitment to being an Eco school.
Our curriculum is broad and balanced in terms of subject coverage, ambitious in its aim for all pupils to access the content and make progress through it and is underpinned by current research (example). We have worked in consultation with our school stakeholders to develop a curriculum that is shared and understood by all and responds to the needs of our pupils in our learning community.
The impact of our curriculum will be seen through every child achieving academically to reach their full potential. The children will leave us as socially and emotional literate individuals with an enhanced cultural awareness. They will be lifelong learners ready and equipped to make a contribution to society and to take up their place in the world.
