The aim of Carmountside’s Curriculum is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society.

We plan our curriculum to ensure it has sufficient breadth, balance and relevance for each child. Barriers to learning for our pupils are clearly identified and these issues have been taken onto consideration when designing the curriculum. We use the Learning Challenge Curriculum as this approach secures greater learning involvement, builds on children’s prior knowledge and helps them to develop into creative, confident learners who are keen to take risks, collaborate and persevere. It is these qualities which we feel are vital for success in life as well as learning.

The Learning Challenge curriculum requires our teachers to actively think how the curriculum will meet the needs and interests of the pupils. It promotes curiosity through enquiry based learning whilst embedding the application of basic skills. We are developing a curriculum which not only ensures our pupils develop a strong vocabulary base, but also ensures that ‘sticky knowledge’ is taught in such a way, it is retained within our pupils’ long term memory.
