Sheringdale is committed to providing a broad and inspiring creative curriculum across all subjects. Pupils are taught with a ‘mastery’ approach, meaning they are encouraged to ask questions developing curiosity about their learning. Low-threshold, high ceiling tasks enable children to make connections within and across their learning, as well as fostering resilience and a ‘can do’ attitude. Talk for learning is used effectively to support children in learning to communicate their ideas fluently, including giving feedback and reflection, and developing the ability to reason. Across all subjects, mistakes are regarded as learning opportunities, and through discussion with adults and peers, children set their own goals and targets. These skills are vital for pupils to engage fully with a curriculum designed to challenge and excite.
The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners. Some subject areas are taught by specialists, ensuring the best provision, and a topic-led approach in all year groups encourages pupils to delve deeper into exploring and understanding their learning.
Our curriculum intent is to nurture a passion for learning in every child, ensuring they fulfil their individual potential and preparing each for their future.
