The National Curriculum of our country has two broad aims-
- To promote spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all pupils at the school and of society, and
- To prepare pupils at school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Our government states that the national curriculum should form one part of the curriculum. It will determine the essential knowledge that is needed to educate our citizens. It demands our society is introduced to the best that is thought and said so that in turn we can engender and appreciate creativity and achievement to date . At Brooklands we would suggest the phrase ‘Learning from the Past to create the Future’ support this desire.
Each school should consider its own context, the communities needs, and individuals needs to develop the whole curriculum that it must then communicate with the wider world to ensure transparency and accountability.
Most importantly our school will develop a structure within which to deliver a curriculum. One that is pitched to ensure achievement for all with the expectation that all pupils will leave the school at and above national average in terms of key skills and with the creativity and confidence to make a positive difference in the world.
