Our Curriculum

All children are unique and individual. So are all schools. With this in mind, we have in place a broad and balanced curriculum, which ensures coverage of statutory curriculum content, knowledge and skills; but also incorporates elements that reflect our context and the skills and experiences we want children to develop and encounter during their time at Endon Hall.

We have a whole school emphasis on developing vocabulary, revisiting and reviewing learning so that it ‘sticks’, keeping tasks open-ended, and ‘quizzing’ to check gains in knowledge.

In order to engage and excite the children we organise our curriculum around high quality texts. We aim to nurture lifelong learning using Building Learning Power, Co-operative Learning and Life Skills as threads weaved throughout our curriculum. We also aim to promote opportunity, experience and ‘The Greats’.

​Children progress at different rates and have different strengths and weaknesses. Our curriculum aims to strike a balance between the core skills (English and Maths) and the foundation subject skills (Science, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Computing, Physical Education, Religious Education, Art and Design, Music, Languages and Relationships & Health Education); in order that children’s talents can be exploited and applied more widely.
