Our Curriculum Vision

At Kingshill our curriculum is child-centred, aspirational and knowledge –rich, catering for each child’s individual and unique needs through different styles of learning, enquiry and challenge.

Through first-hand experience and active learning, it encourages children’s curiosity and desire to explore, question and understand the world around them, it encourages them to use their initiative and to be risk- takers. It will equip children for the future and life-long learning.

Our Curriculum Intent

We provide a broad, balanced curriculum that:

  • engages pupils through exciting, creative, thematic topics tailored to meet the needs of the school and its context, using the surrounding area and the wider locality of Bristol
  • is ambitious for all pupils and provides clear progression of skills, knowledge and understanding from EYFS to year 6 and beyond
  • builds on key literacy and numeracy basic skills
  • utilises features of our local and wider communities, including a wide range of extra-curricular activities, trips and visits and visitors to the school
  • teaches pupils about their developing world, including how their environment and society have changed over time
  • is adapted to suit the needs of all learners and is adapted and developed for pupils with additional learning needs or disabilities
  • provides opportunities for pupils to understand our Christian Values
  • prepares our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in modern Britain.
  • helps pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging so they can make a positive contribution to society actively promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
  • enables pupils to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own, to combat prejudice
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils
  • prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of later life.

We intend to enable pupils to:

  • grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they develop  their true potential.
  • articulate their hopes and aspirations for the future

  • question, investigate and experiment, to be adventurous and to develop their own thinking
  • learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability without limits
  • know how to learn best for the context they are in
  •  appreciate human achievement and aspirations
  • self-reflect on their learning, to respond positively to feedback and to understand next steps to success.
  • achieve at least age-related expectations across the curriculum unless a pupil’s learning needs means that this is not possible
  • make good progress across the curriculum from their prior attainment
  • have equality of opportunity, to diminish social disadvantage
