Nurturing our children to think critically and creatively within a collaborative community.
Our outstanding practice ensures our children meet their full potential, both personally and academically, and provides opportunities for them to develop their unique talents and skills. As a nationally recognised Thinking School, we nurture an empathetic community of creative and critical thinkers. We achieve success for all through our dynamic and ambitious curriculum, inclusive learning, promoting fairness and celebrating diversity.
Our Curriculum Intent (what we will teach)
We have designed a bespoke and ever-changing curriculum that incorporates all elements of the National Curriculum whilst considering the specific needs of the children in our school community. Careful consideration has been given to what content is crucial for our children to learn and the best contexts in which they can learn this so that they are educated citizens.
Our Curriculum Implementation (how we will teach it)
This document explains the teaching method and practices (pedagogy) used at Hillcross. This includes how the planned curriculum is delivered to the children and the method and practices we use to facilitate learning. It is about the teaching that takes place every day to enable children to make progress, the interactions between people, the learning environment and the learning tasks themselves; the resources made available; and the opportunities provided.
