At Corinthian Primary School we want every child to have high aspirations and to reach their full potential to become life-long learners. Every child has access to a broad and balanced curriculum which aims to meet the needs of all learners in a safe and stimulating environment. Our curriculum aims to challenge our children and to allow them to excel. We strongly promote self-respect for all in our school irrespective of race, creed or gender and we aim to embed tolerance of different cultures and religions.
All National Curriculum subjects are carefully planned and sequenced so that they progressively build on children’s prior learning by linking knowledge across different subjects. We are committed to providing a curriculum that not only empowers children by building knowledge and developing skills, but also develops children physically, socially, spiritually, morally, culturally, and artistically. We plan to develop children’s understanding of key vocabulary throughout the curriculum so that children become confident and articulate, with a deep understanding of key concepts. At Corinthian Primary School we have high expectations in standards of literacy and numeracy across all subjects.
Learning is engaging through ensuring that children have first-hand experiences through educational visits, through the varied sports that children can choose to do, through the clubs that we run during and after school and through visitors that share their expertise and knowledge. We aim to enrich the learning and promote responsibility, through planned outdoor learning, through gardening, eco-awareness, understanding sustainability and through collaboration in forest school. We also provide opportunities for learning by using the rich heritage of Liverpool and beyond, to ensure that children receive a cultural inheritance. Our intention is to grow and develop children with strong values who can contribute positively to the well-being of their community and to wider society and who can fulfil their potential.
Our curriculum is based upon principles founded within educational research. We teach new concepts in small steps so that children can learn new things without experiencing cognition overload. We ensure that we give children the knowledge that they need in order to become skilful in different areas of the curriculum. We give children lots of practice so that children’s learning can become fluent, efficient and flexible.
