Subjects, Enrichment and Planning
Know more, do more, choose to be more
Learning is “a process that leads to change, which occurs as a result of experience and increases the potential for improved performance and future learning” (Ambrose et al, 2010, p.3). The change in the learner may happen at the level of knowledge, attitude or behaviour. As a result of learning, learners come to see concepts, ideas, and/or the world differently.
Learning takes place over time and must be embedded in long term memory and be retrievable if it is to be called learning. In every subject learners meet concepts several times over the course of their primary education so that knowledge, understanding and skills are secured. Our curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure that all learners gain the capital they need.
Our curriculum is not just about what is taught in lessons. It is about learning at playtimes and lunchtimes, after-school clubs, breakfast clubs, trips and visitors.
The pandemic has curtailed enrichment opportunities, but we are determined to return to normal continuing to seek further opportunity through virtual events to bring the world to Newton Burgoland.
We recognise how important it is to prepare our pupils for the world of tomorrow, to inspire them to solve global issues and to have a voice.
This policy will be revisited and updated shortly to take account of our 2021/ 22 curriculum review.
