We pride ourselves on providing a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects the National Curriculum, our Christian Values, and the interests of our learners. Our Curriculum Overview shows how our curriculum is taught across our school. 

Our curriculum is designed to stretch all of our pupils and to enable them to achieve the very best they can - to reach for the stars. It incorporates all the below elements to ensure our pupils are not only secondary school ready, but to ensure they can go on to achieve anything they want to in life.

What is a Knowledge-Rich Curriculum?

A knowledge-rich curriculum at Springhill;

  • places powerful knowledge at the heart of the curriculum
  • has carefully chosen content
  • is organised in a coherent way, ensuring it builds from year to year
  • is cumulative, constructing firm foundations from which children can build   conceptual understanding and skills over time
  • is an entitlement for every child; regardless of background or ability
  • is coherent and ensures that teaching does not jump from topic to topic, but enables children to develop knowledge, foster curiosity and ignite a love of learning.

In many areas, our curriculum goes beyond the national curriculum to ensure our children gain the richest and highest standard of education e.g. we hire in specialist gymnastics teachers to teach gymnastics, all pupils learn to note read in music etc. 

Our curriculum focusses on knowledge and reading skills and this enables our children to reach for the stars in life.
