The curriculum framework at Birk Hill ensures that all children access a broad, balanced, challenging and progressive knowledge rich curriculum based around the requirements of all of the prime and specific areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage and all the subjects of the National Curriculum in Key Stage 1.
The curriculum framework ensures that contextual barriers to learning are overcome, ensuring that all children are able to fulfil their potential, regardless of background or ability.
The curriculum framework at Birk Hill is specific to our context and has specific components which achieve this by ensuring that
*All children have enriched lives through access to high quality life experiences which equip children with the cultural capital they need e.g. visiting the local church, Eckington woods and the seaside.
*All children have a love of reading through exposure to high quality books, stories and rhymes.
*All children are able to articulate and reason about the world around them through a highly developed vocabulary
*All children are challenged to acquire a broad and balanced range of knowledge and skills through exposure to carefully planned and progressive subject content.
*All children have opportunities to develop socially, morally, spiritually and culturally and demonstrate fundamental British values and the Birk Hill values.
Ultimately our curriculum is one of the primary ways in which we aim to fulfil our school aim – to spend each day in learning, laughter and love.
