Curriculum Overviews

Our curriculum is mare up of three core elements: 

  • Skills
  • Experiences
  • Knowledge 

 

The aim is that our curriculum promotes outstanding learning in meaningful contexts that engage and excite our children. We want the children to benefit from rich and diverse learning experiences which inspire them and leave them wanting more...

 

The Curriculum is made up of: 

  • The Holme Experience - These are the things that we'd like all our children to do whilst at Holme Community School. 
  • An overview of topics. 
  • Educational Visits - at least one per half term. 
  • The Cross-curricular approach to all subject areas. 
  • Our Values, which underpin our curriculum. 

 

We operate a two-year cycle for our topics, to give breadth and depth to our curriculum. On the class pages, you will be able to see the latest curriculum newsletter.
