At Bethersden Primary School it is our underlying belief that every child should feel uniquely valued and develop a thirst for learning across a wide range of curriculum subjects and rich experiences. We believe that our curriculum enables every child to develop their own personal excellences and have exciting dreams and hopes for the future through being confident, ready to tackle any challenge they may face and come up with solutions when faced with obstacles.
We have designed a coherent, sequenced curriculum to ensure every child receives a full, rich and balanced education with an appropriate mix of academic and personal development opportunities.
At Bethersden we place high priority on ensuring children’s mental and physical wellbeing are met so that they are successful. We understand that children need to feel valued as individuals and have strong emotional attachments to thrive. Therefore, every member of our school community understands and plans opportunities to support children in overcoming barriers to learning.
Our balanced approach to the curriculum is not at the expense of high standards in core subject areas. High standards and enabling children to reach their full potential is of vital importance if they are to succeed in the next stage of their education and go on to use their gifts make a difference.
Our exciting curriculum encourages children to develop both knowledge and skills in a broad ranges of disciplines so that every child progresses both academically and personally. Our approaches to teaching (pedagogy) mean that our curriculum is taught in ways that excite and challenge each class and every child.
