At Milburn School, we provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum for all children; providing exciting learning opportunities and experiences, to equip children with the knowledge, skills and understanding to achieve to their full potential. Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of our children and the community in which they live.
There are three main learning threads through our curriculum and these have been prioritised when planning the specific curriculum content:
- To understand and challenge stereotypes – we want our children to know that we are all unique and that each part of them contributes to their own identity and to have respect and understanding of each other’s differences. We want to open the children up to the world in which we live and give them opportunities
- To understand and challenge different viewpoints – we want our children to know that everyone’s lives and experiences influence their viewpoints. We want our children to have an understanding of different people, their lives/ experiences and their viewpoints.
- To appreciate Cumbria and explore the wider world– We want children to love and value where we live but at the same time learn about the world and give them the inspiration to want to explore it. Children will learn about Cumbria and the people that have influenced the way it is today. They will be given the opportunity to experience everything it has to give, whilst developing the skills that will allow them to enjoy it safely. We will also teach them about other areas of the world near and far, inspiring them to want to
The coverage of the National Curriculum is achieved through a two and four year rolling programme. Our long-term planning takes into account the fluidity of our groups. The mixture of ages in the specific teaching groups means that we need to be flexible with our approach to ensure children's knowledge and skills progression is strong as they move through school.
