At Sutton Benger CE Primary school we are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum that is deliberately knowledge and vocabulary rich, fully immersive and joy-filled. Our curriculum provides children with the knowledge, skills and understanding that will prepare our children as citizens of the 21st century.
Our curriculum is organised as Units within a 39-weeks curriculum map. Children take on States of Being e.g. 'Being a Scientist' and become fully immersed in their unit learning, linking this to reading and writing where possible.
Our curriculum includes the use of new and emerging technology, both to teach ‘Computing’ as well as to support learning in other subject areas.
Outdoor and physical learning is particularly important to us and can be seen through our provision for Forest School from Reception to Y6 as well as the outdoor areas created adjacent to Willow and Hazel classes. Physical activity is activity is also promoted through our commitment to use specialist PE providers to support us and the physical equipment provided for break and lunchtimes. All children in KS2 have the opportunity to swim which will ensure that every child leaves Sutton Benger able to swim, with many children exceeding National Curriculum requirements.
Our curriculum makes good use of our local environment, we actively engage with our community.
Our school's vision is inspired by the ‘Green Man’, found in our local church.
Together we learn, grow and flourish:
"Remember this - a farmer who plants a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously gets a generous crop".
(2 Corinthians 9:6)
