Wider Curriculum

Our curriculum philosophy:


At Bare Trees Primary School, we provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum through a thematic approach, where English is the central thread to all learning.


Our curriculum provides a broad range of experiences for our pupils:


Our pupils’ backgrounds and our culture for learning provide the following drivers that underpin all areas of our curriculum:


  • Language for Learning - which helps pupils to build foundations for effective communication, giving pupils the language skills they need to master the curriculum and enable them to express their feelings, desires and queries to the world around them. 
  • Diversity - which helps pupils understand that each individual is unique and to recognise and celebrate our individual differences.
  • Aspirations - which help pupils to build aspirations and know the available possibilities for their future lives.
  • Experiences - which help children to experience first-hand a range of activities, opportunities and life chances.


We offer a thoughtful range of experiences that support our culture: pupils enjoy an entire range of academic, physical, spiritual, moral, social, cultural activities that enrich their lives and give them the confidence and skills for a fulfilled and happy life.


Our curriculum provides appropriate balance:


We believe that all children should become independent thinkers and experience the feeling of success in a wide range of areas. Our curriculum therefore gives pupils an excellent mix of academic and personal development; it gives equal importance to core subjects and the wider curriculum; physical and mental wellbeing are both valued, understood and prioritised by our bespoke curriculum.


Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, along with a well-planned and structured inclusion of personal development, underpins all of our work.


We carefully balance the requirement for pupils to reach national expectations in core subjects with our wider curriculum aims of providing a range of thoughtful and enriching experiences. As a result, our pupils thrive.
