Our Curriculum Offer
At Bowness we provide our pupils with a first-class education, our curriculum ensures that all children are prepared for the next stages in their education and that they become successful life-long learners.
At the heart of our school are a set of core values. These underpin our curriculum and the ethos of the school. At Bowness, we place great importance on a curriculum that develops the whole child. Through our core values, we foster an environment where the emotional, physical, academic, social, moral, spiritual, and cultural development of each child is considered. We firmly believe that everyone is entitled to an ambitious curriculum and our curriculum design is accessible for all, including children with SEND and disadvantaged backgrounds.
To do this we have carefully designed our knowledge engaged curriculum. This is designed to enable learners to acquire relevant subject knowledge which underpins the application of skills. Skills are carefully and progressively mapped across each key stage and subject area.
Knowledge is consolidated and built upon to support retention and recall and is clearly outlined. This ensures that by the time children leave our school they have learned, and are able to recall and apply the key information that we feel is important in order for them to be successful, both in their next stage of learning and in the future.
High-quality learning experiences are important in the delivery of our curriculum. These experiences provide a meaningful and memorable context to learning. Trips, visitors, and enrichment activities are integral to learning and enhance pupils’ engagement. These opportunities enrich learning for our pupils and support raising aspirations.
