At The Rissington School we believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that promotes a love of learning and willingness to explore.
We are proud to use the National Curriculum as a starting point for a wide and varied learning experience for our children, but enrich it by our strong ethos based on respect for ourselves and others, equality and a sense of wonder at the world we live in. We are committed to developing the whole child. Our children will have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged.
We are continually reviewing and improving the curriculum we offer to our children, evolving it according to the needs of our children and to the aspirations of the staff and community.
At the beginning of the 2020 academic year we reviewed our curriculum to ensure that it was representative of the community, skills and interests of teachers, current affairs and offered greater diversity. Using the themes of Exploration, Discovery and Power, we have designed our curriculum around historical themes, with links to other subjects actively planned to ensure that the termly themes are inspirational and add meaning to learning. Subject Leaders have ensured that within years, and across the whole school, skills and learning is progressive. Due to the structure of our classes, we will be operating a two year cycle, which allows our teachers with mixed-year classes to plan and work together, sharing interests and strengths.
