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 life long learners. Our values based on ‘Building Learning Power’ are at the heart of our school vision and integral to our ethos. They are:
Our curriculum is based on a learning challenge approach which enables the children to have input into the direction of their own learning. We begin each learning challenge with a ‘Wow’ visit or engagement activity and complete our learning challenge with a learning reflection and presentation to parents and other learners in the school. We believe this approach enables the curriculum to build on children’s strengths and interests , so each learner can achieve their full potential.
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.
PSHME is delivered throughout the curriculum, with additional focus through Social, Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) time which 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.
