We hold to our core Broughton Values of:
These values were voted for by the whole school community after extensive exploration of their meanings. This took the form of assemblies, presentations, drama activities and pupil workshops.
We hold to the Fundamental British Values of:
These values, shared with many other people around the world, are actively promoted through our Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cutural learning in PSHE lessons, assemblies and in our day-to-day interactions.
Our curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of the new National Curriculum which became effective in September 2014. We embrace the principles of a curriculum which:
promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We will continuously develop our Broughton version of the curriculum which will deliver an engaging learning experience for our young learners. As we work on each topic for the first time, we are continually reflecting and refining it for next time. As we have mixed year group classes, it is important to build in this flexibility as each topic is visited on alternate years rather than every year.
We have built in many lines of investigation for each topic. In addition to one main question which embraces the concept, we have chosen four key sub-questions to allow us to cover the breadth of the new curriculum.
We very much adopt a "whatever it takes" attitude and support children who require help with their learning in whatever way suits their learning style. This could be through help from another adult, use of intervention programmes or technology.
