Curriculum Intent

Marlborough Primary Academy – June 2019

Curriculum Intention

Our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them with skills for life, where every child is recognised as a unique individual. Our curriculum is designed to: recognise individual starting points as foundations for learning; immerse pupils in literacy rich learning opportunities; engage pupils through experiences that ignite their curiosity to learn; promote creativity; and build independence and resilience.

We believe that real life experiences and purposeful learning are crucial to supporting pupils to develop learning across the curriculum and in the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. These learning experiences are crucial. They underpin the teaching of skills for reading and writing and maths. We promote positive attitudes to learning and an inclusive curriculum promoting tolerance, responsibility and an understanding of the local community and the wider world.
