At Penruddock Primary School a creative and innovative approach to the teaching of the National Curriculum is central to our vision and values. Underpinning our planning and delivery of the curriculum is a recognition of the importance of instilling in children a spirit of enjoyment and enquiry and inspiring a love of learning for life. We believe that learning should be memorable; that children are able to make connections across areas of their learning and with the wider world and that the experiences children have in school empower them to become clear thinkers, decision makers and well-rounded future citizens.
Children are provided with a broad, balanced curriculum that supports and challenges all learners, matching learning to the stages of development of individual children. Although subjects may at times be taught separately, the children’s learning is often made more meaningful by applying knowledge and skills across different subjects. Teachers plan this through themes which may embrace a number of curriculum areas and that enables children to make connections across their learning and to develop their understanding in a practical, real-life context.
"The school provides many memorable experiences for its pupils and this helps their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development to be outstanding." OFSTED
