Principles, Character Development Strands and Learning Rationales

How does our Curriculum Intent drive our choice of curriculum content?

  • Each Curriculum Intent Principle is underpinned by 4 - 6 Character Development Strands. These detail the expected character developments that we are seeking to achieve for our pupils.
  • Within each year group the Character Development Strands are addressed in an age-appropriate way. The means by which a Character Development Strand is addressed at any given point within the curriculum, is encapsulated through a Learning Rationale.  
  • Therefore, the "Learning Rationales" detail how each curriculum unit studied builds some aspect of character within one of the Principles.
  • We continually review our choice of curriculum content, in consultation with pupils and parents, to ensure that maximum relevance and benefit for our pupils.
