Whole School Curriculum Intent

The intent of our school curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and achievement. We have identified key intentions that drive our curriculum.

Our curriculum intentions are:

1.    To build a curriculum, with reading at its core, which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge so that pupils know more, remember more and understand more –  a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum so that pupils can reach and exceed their potential

2.    To build a curriculum which nurtures children’s learning behaviours and develops a curiosity towards exploration of knowledge so that they know more, remember more and understand more – a curriculum which grows the key skills of: collaboration, independence, resilience, communication, leadership and enthusiasm

3.    To build a curriculum which ensures children know right from wrong, celebrate diversity and are ‘Life Ready’ so they know more, remember more and understand more –a curriculum which results in children developing crucial life-skills and positive moral traits so that pupils understand their role within the community and wider world. To understand what it means to be a good Citizen. To be aware of the rule of law, to be tolerant, to be respectful of democracy and individual liberty. To experience cultural capital and uses this to make links across learning. To provide opportunities that develop the whole child and improve aspirations

For the past 9 years, through 2 children, I have always felt NPS goes the extra mile to support it's students in all areas of the curriculum. The staff are fantastic, hard-working and very approachable. It is a great school and I am glad we chose it all those years ago.

This school has always been a positive influence on my children (2 of which didn't want to leave!) I have recommended this school to several people in the past and will continue to do so in the future. High praise for all the teachers and assistants who make the school what it is!

Great team of staff at NPS. Ladies at reception are so helpful. Newsletter and Facebook page are very informative and helpful. Breakfast club - excellent - my child raves about it. Love the Friday celebration assembly. The sense of pride and encouragement felt is overwhelming - a wonderful celebration of the children.
