CURRICULUM POLICY STATEMENT:

Our STAR curriculum is a cross curricular approach that aims to be:

S - Stimulating. We want all children to be actively engaged by their learning and for their curiosity to be continually captured.

T - Team-based. We want all children to to enjoy learning through collaboration

A - Aspirational. We want all children to be challenged and to enjoy this challenge.

R - Relevant. We want all children to be engrossed in a curriculum that is current and for the direction of the learning to be led by them.

A copy of our long term curriculum plans can be downloaded below:

Although these documents provide an outline of learning for the year, we believe that learning should be led by the children and as such our planning will be adjusted and changed accordingly to ensure that we really capture our pupil's imaginations and spark their curiosity. Only by doing this will we make sure that all opportunities for learning are maximised.

Values and Purposes underpinning the School Curriculum:

  • Learning through the curriculum is an entitlement for all children
  • A commitment to equality of opportunity
  • The inclusion of all children and catering for individual needs
  • The involvement of all members of the school and extended community
  • The provision of an education that prepares children for life in the wider world

Through learning within a broad and balanced curriculum, the objectives are to enable children to:

  • Develop lively, enquiring minds and a positive approach to learning
  • Have high self esteem
  • Work with independence and also as a team member
  • Develop their creativity
  • Be successful and reach their potential
  • Have their achievements celebrated
  • Value others and their environment
  • Become good citizens

THREEMILESTONE SCHOOL'S COMMITMENT TO EQUALITY:

We are committed to:

  • Eliminating discrimination and harassment in all areas
  • Making our school safe and secure for all
  • Ensuring that every pupil has access to the necessary support required to enable them to achieve their highest potential, we will promote equality of opportunity.
  • Promoting good relations and positive attitudes towards all people
  • Encouraging active participation in the life and work of the community

Our commitment covers equality on grounds of age, disability, gender, race, religion/belief and sexual orientation.

We expect our staff and governors to put in place our commitment and organisational values by:

  • By ensuring that the school's procedures for disciplining pupils and managing behaviour are fair, effective and equitable.
  • Responding quickly to complaints and incidents in a positive and pro-active way
  • Providing access to services, facilities and information
  • Ensuring that the adults working or volunteering in the school include as much as possible a balanced gender mix, appropriate representation of diverse ethnic groups and disabled people. We believe that this will provide good role models for pupils from all backgrounds.
  • Promoting activities that celebrate our common experience as well as those that recognise diversity generally and foster understanding and respect for the culture and faith of all our learners and their families
  • Where possible meeting the specific needs of individual pupils within the six equality strands.
