Curriculum Intent at Shaw
“To explore God’s amazing universe, valuing others and keeping children at the heart of all we do.”
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11”
- Our curriculum is topic-based. First-hand experience is given high priority.
- We begin this exploration from the familiar and local and build on this to introduce increasingly less familiar and more distant ideas, concept and places.
- Our values, both learning values and Christian values are woven throughout the full curriculum.
- We make use of our locality whenever possible and have planned our knowledge progression to develop children’s understanding of the national and international importance and connectedness of Melksham, Wiltshire and the South West of England.
