At Jubilee we follow the New National Curriculum for all subjects and have worked hard to ensure that it is delivered in a way that is creative, inspiring and challenging. We believe that the following key principles are important in our curriculum:
Breadth - We teach all subjects in the national curriculum and also try to provide ample opportunities to support children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Balance - We try to ensure that sufficient time and weight is given to each subject in order that children achieve well in relation to the national expectations. Our timetable is flexible which allows teachers to deliver lessons either weekly or in a consecutive series or "block" so that children can be immersed in the topic.
Creativity - We believe that children learn best when they can make links, both within and between subjects. We teach our humanities and science through a cross curricular approach, enabling our pupils to apply the core skills of literacy and maths within a context. We also try to deliver lessons in a variety of ways to support children with different learning styles and needs - visual, auditory and kinaesthetic.
Inspiring and relevant - Children learn best when they are engaged and stimulated by their learning and we try to ensure that our curriculum reflects this with units of work that will enthuse and motivate. We use trips and visitors to bring learning to life and to help children recognise that learning also happens outside the classroom.
Challenging - We have high expectations for all our children from when they enter in Nursery to when they leave in Year 6. Our curriculum reflects this and, combined with our focus on consistent quality teaching, ensures our children leave Jubilee prepared for the next stages of their learning, including being "secondary ready".
