Curriculum

Elmridge strives to ensure that all its pupils meet their full academic, social, emotional and physical potential through building solid foundations during this first chapter of their lifelong learning journey.

Our goal is to develop confident, understanding, global citizens with a love of learning and respect for each other and the world around them.

 “Empowering children to shape the world of tomorrow”

Our curriculum is firmly underpinned by our mission statement and values.

The curriculum is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils and ensures that the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 are delivered coherently and progressively.  The curriculum is enriched through a wide range of experiences and opportunities: use of the outdoor environment, the arts, sport, local and international links, school visits and visitors to school.

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills, knowledge and creativity to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education and to prepare them for future opportunities and responsibilities of life as global citizens of the 21st century.

Developing the holistic child is of upmost importance and, with this in mind, we place great value on Personal, Social, Emotional and Citizenship Education and the promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education to develop confident, resilient children, who enjoy challenge and leadership opportunities.
