Curriculum Overview

At Topcliffe we are very proud of our Creative Curriculum.

The ethos behind it is to allow the children to become more independent learners as well as becoming more resilient. At the heart of the curriculum is the development of skills and knowledge. During the lessons, children are challenged to produce work in a creative way, giving them freedom to choose how to present their work without diminishing the level of skills and knowledge being learnt.

This way of teaching the curriculum is more vibrant and engaging. Our children are proud of the work they are producing and they are happy to be challenged to present the work in a different way.

The children are getting the benefits of wider opportunities to express themselves through their work. They are getting a variety of experiences and development, through school trips, school visitors, and ‘WOW’ experiences, which are then utilised to record their learning in their journals.
