Curriculum Intent for Nine Mile Ride Primary School

At Nine Mile Ride Primary School we firmly believe that it is our duty to offer a holistic approach to the education we deliver, and we do this by driving five key competencies across the school: CORE; CURRICULUM; CULTURE, CHARACTER and COMMUNITY.

We take pride in developing outstanding teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations for all our pupils and knowing the pupils well so that every child can access and experience success in both the CORE and foundation CURRICULUM.

The curriculum is ambitious, progressive and equitable; however, it is not at the expense of a full curriculum and not solely focused on end of Key Stage results.

We foster independent learning and our carefully planned curriculum opens the doors on all sorts of opportunities, resulting in children who are highly-motivated, creative and enthusiastic in all that they do. Through real-life and connected learning in the classroom and outdoors, our children gain knowledge and become effective problem solvers.

We believe that magic happens at the intersection of knowledge and skills.  Our pupils will need the essential knowledge and be able to apply this in order to be successful, educated citizens of the future.

Our role is to introduce our pupils to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.

Our CULTURE is based upon offering equitable challenge to all so that they strive for academic, creative, emotional, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.  Our vision is for all pupils is to leave Nine Mile Ride Primary as life-long learners with the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes that make them ready for being responsible citizens of the 21st century within their own COMMUNITY and beyond..

We hope that our values of being RESPECTFUL, RESILIENT, RESOURCEFUL and REFLECTIVE will enable pupils to develop a personal ethic and a moral attitude that will positively affect behaviour.  Our aim is to equip them with the skills needed for successful lives both now and in the future and contribute positively to society.

We firmly believe that CHARACTER attributes are vital to future success and by promoting mental wellbeing, growth mindset and character education, our pupils take ownership of and responsibility for their learning and are confident; curious, communicate well, capable of doing new things and are not frightened to make mistakes.

Our curriculum opens the doors on all sorts of opportunities, resulting in children who are highly-motivated and enthusiastic in all they do.
