Curriculum at Belmont School
Belmont School's Vision
Development of the whole school learning community promotes personalised and independent learning throughout the learning journey for pupils and adults. Pupil voice informs all school development priorities – every child, every day make us Stronger Together.
Belmont's Curriculum Strategic Intent
As a result of consultation with parents, governors, pupils and staff, there was a formidable sense that we needed to develop our learners to become leaders of not only their own future, but to become leaders for the future of the generations to come.
Our curriculum is based around the UNICEF Rights for Children and the 17 sustainable Global Goals. At Belmont School, we are focusing on what those goals mean to us and how 'Pupil Leaders' can share understanding across the school community.
Learning is integrated, where appropriate, and curriculum planning makes many cross-curricular links to embed depth, breadth and progress. The vital skills of collaboration and independence are developed across the year groups. The integration of learning allows all children to gain greater depth of understanding with a "knowledge and skills-rich" focus from their individual starting points.
At Belmont we develop a curriculum which:
- Creates an aspirational high achievement culture – Aiming high.
- Takes into account individual needs and styles - Inquisitive.
- Allows everyone to experience success – Social connection and Mindful.
- Raises standards of attainment – Leaders of Learning.
