The Curriculum and Learning at Sarisbury

Working and learning together

Our Curriculum

At Sarisbury, we offer a stimulating, creative and challenging curriculum that promotes the development of the whole child and offers a wide range of learning opportunities. We offer children a curriculum that caters for a variety of interests; that will Inspire, Motivate, Challenge and provide opportunities for children to Succeed in all aspects of their personal development. Through curriculum subjects, educational visits and residential trips, as well as numerous extra-curricular activities, we aim to give children every opportunity to meet personal goals and to be the best that they can be.

Our curriculum is broad, balanced and designed to foster excitement and curiosity. Curricular subjects taught at Sarisbury are:
English, Mathematics, Science, Art and Design, Citizenship (Relationships Learning), Computing, Design Technology, Languages (French & Spanish), Geography, History, Music, Physical Education and Religious Education.

Learning is organised through topic themes where links are made between subjects, giving children a deeper knowledge and understanding, and a context on which to hook their learning. Planning for these curriculum units are designed to stimulate interest, promote the acquisition of research skills and develop children’s skills in observation, thinking, creativity and an awareness of the outside world. The children have access to excellent learning resources including a superb library and ICT facilities. Learning ‘first hand’ is a key aspect of learning at Sarisbury and therefore, our curriculum is supported through a wide variety of trips and visitors.

Key Learning behaviours have been identified within our curriculum and underpin our expectations of ‘The Sarisbury Learner’. Resilience, Independence, Motivation, Communication, Reflection and Co-operation are developed across the curriculum at Sarisbury to help children take a greater ownership of their learning and progress.
