Curriculum overview

Our curriculum

Vision Statement:

Newlyn School is a caring place where the individuality, gifts and talents of all children and adults are nurtured. In partnership with the whole school community, we seek to provide an education of the highest quality, promoting respect for each other and the wider world. We aim to foster aspiration, resilience and independence in our young people so that they are fully equipped to take on life’s challenges. The children’s happiness is at the heart of all we do as we strive to ensure all children meet their full potential. We work together with the aim that everyone can be the best that they can be in everything they do.

 

Intent:

Newlyn has a holistic philosophy of education.  Our broad and balanced curriculum builds on the skills, knowledge and understanding of all children, providing them with life skills and aspirations to become good citizens of the future.

 

Implementation:

Our curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. The curriculum supports them with their academic, social and personal development.

 

Impact:

Children are provided with engaging experiences and develop skills that prepare them for the future and there is full coverage of the National Curriculum.

 

Outdoor learning

At Newlyn, we believe that children need to have a connection with their local area and nature. Staff plan learning opportunities within their topics to get children outside in our wonderful school grounds as well as our local environment, around Cornwall and beyond.
