Our Curriculum Intent


The staff at The British School are committed to meeting the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum through high quality teaching and learning for all. We offer a creative, broad and balanced curriculum which encompasses academic subjects, sport, music, Forest school and social, moral, spiritual and personal education.

We believe in developing the holistic child, putting their needs and interests at the forefront of their learning and encourage them to aspire to be the best version of themselves.

We embrace difference and teach character building skills which will serve our pupils well throughout their lives.

We are particularly proud of the active role our pupils play within their local and wider community.


Through the delivery of our curriculum we want children to be able to:-


  • Become independent, reflective learners
  • Develop a lifelong love for learning
  • Nurture individual talents and interests
  • Take responsibility and ownership of their own behaviour
  • To lead a healthy lifestyle and make informed choices
  • To be resilient, develop critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • To gain a growth mind-set attitude to learning through being focused
  • Learn about protecting our world and looking after the environment
  • Prepare for life in the wider world, and being brave taking on new challenges
  • Celebrate and welcome differences, with equal opportunities for all
  • Always work to the best of their ability, and take pride in everything they do
  • To have respect for themselves and others, and to support others when required.
  • Have an understanding of Britain’s cultural heritage

Curriculum: Additional information

At The British School we strive to provide high-quality teaching and learning for all pupils, based on a creative approach to the National Curriculum. We wholeheartedly believe that the children’s needs and interests should be at the forefront of their learning. We therefore ensure that we consult our ‘Pupil Voice’ regularly, to demonstrate that we value their ideas and contributions.


Our aim is to ensure that learning is engaging and fun, whilst also making our curriculum relevant to ‘real life’. We endeavour to provide our children with many first-hand experiences and opportunities, such as visits from musicians, artists, scientists, sportspeople and actors, as well as school trips, Forest School, Residential and theatre visits. We are passionate about our pupils playing an active role in their local community, whether by hosting events for our ‘Senior Friends’, visiting our local church or care home and undertaking charity work.
