The Droxford curriculum for learning is designed to ‘inspire and educate for life’ through:
– Learning pathways that offer a powerful blend of support and challenge that enable children to make good or better progress.
– A strong emphasis on enquiry based learning. Children are challenged to investigate, develop ideas, communicate and evaluate at increasingly sophisticated levels.
– High quality assessment for learning. The children must understand their learning objectives and be able to use success criteria. Rich questioning and discussion engage the children to think at increasingly deeper levels. The children evaluate their own work and respond to feedback from teaching staff.
– Outdoor learning. The local environment is extensively used as a valuable learning resource. Residential visits for all year groups offer a progression of skills in outdoor and adventurous activities. For full details on our residential visits click here to view our booklet.
As you maybe aware there is a new National Curriculum (more details about this and how this could affect your child’s learning can be found at the bottom of this page) and the links below show how we at Droxford Junior School have gone about organising our curriculum accordingly.

There have been some changes to what your child is expected to know and understand as well utilising specific skills at the same time. The following information from “Rising Stars” highlights the changes in each year group.
