We have designed our curriculum at Penny Bridge to ensure it is relevant, coherent and cohesive across the school. Children build on key skills, year on year to making progress for previous starting point. Curriculum content is designed so children understand our locality and also appreciate and consider the challenges and issues of the wider world. Through class teaching, trips, outdoor learning, visitors and community events we ensure all children leave Penny Bridge ready to start the next step of their education with a range of skills to continue to Let Their Light Shine!
Each part of the curriculum is driven by four key strands: the environment, cultural diversity, active lifestyles and spiritual development. For example, we try to ensure in each part of the day the children have an opportunity to move, either in class or in the outdoors. We have visits from people from different backgrounds e.g. Paralympic athletes and regularly use images and texts in lessons which promote diversity. Children are encouraged to ask questions and have opportunities to be inspired though images of the world and to have time for peace and reflection in their day.
As a Christian school we ensure the children are taught through twelve key Christian values which form part of collective worship, lessons in class and help support the culture of the school.
