Curriculum

 

Curriculum statement

Our school curriculum is shaped around distinct ‘curriculum drivers’ that provide meaningful contexts to our children who learn in the South Downs National Park.  We then develop the expectations of the National Curriculum forming the ‘Droxford’ curriculum.

This Droxford Curriculum for Learning is clearly mapped out on a two year cycle, subject by subject – with the progression of knowledge, skills and vocabulary we need our children to experience, use, know and understand, threaded through all learning experiences. 

We endeavour to enrich our children’s experiences in all aspects of the curriculum.  The learning environment is constantly being developed to broaden the children’s positive experiences by utilising visitors; artists; musicians; theatre groups; community links; presentations and workshops.  The children take part in four residentials and many school trips.  They have been re-designing the school grounds for learning and play

Our children are engaged, happy and safe. This platform enables them to respond to the challenges of a 21st century education and life-long challenges. They are taught to reflect and develop the character traits we call ‘Skills for Learning’ – Tenacity, Creativity, Curiosity and Collaboration. Coupled with our Values and school aims we believe every child can be equipped with knowledge and skills navigate life successfully.

They are encouraged to respond to the moral, social and cultural expectations beyond the National Curriculum through tenacity, determination, positive mindsets and reflection. They debate the issues of the past, present and future with informed maturity and respect and understand the need for tolerance, stewardship, values and understanding. And we are very proud of them.
