Our Curriculum Statement

At Mundella Primary School we believe that children have the right to expect an irresistible curriculum which is fun, motivating, interesting and importantly purposeful. We strive to develop imagination, knowledge, understanding and skills which will meet their needs today, while preparing them for the challenges of later life.

We promote and teach key values throughout our school curriculum that we feel will support and prepare our children in becoming lifelong learners. Our values based on ‘Building Learning Power’ are at the heart of our school vision and integral to our ethos. They are:

• Relationships

• Respect

• Resilience

• Reflectiveness

• Resourcefulness

• Reciprocity

• Responsibility

Our curriculum is based around exciting and interactive activities. Children are encouraged to have input into the direction of their own learning and are asked what they would like to learn about at the beginning of each topic. Where possible, each topic is started with a visit or engagement activity. We value the importance of learning outside of the classroom and aim to achieve this as much as possible. Throughout the topics, we share our learning with parents and the community, through the use of Twitter, Class Assemblies and Parents’ Mornings. 

Our curriculum is organised in year groups and teachers work closely with parallel classes to ensure equality of opportunity for all children.

Mundella is recognised City wide for our sporting and extra-curricular successes. We pride ourselves that our curriculum is full of opportunities for children to grow in confidence and broaden their experiences through clubs, performances, visits, residential experiences and links with the community.

PSHCE is delivered throughout the curriculum, with additional focus through Social, Emotional Aspects of Learning time. This develops responsible citizens with an understanding of racial, religious and other forms of equality. Furthermore, our approach to the curriculum ensures teachings of the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

For more information on homework, educational visits, home school agreements and sex education please see the policies section of the website.
