Curriculum Intent

At Emmer Green Primary School, our intent is to provide a challenging, stimulating and creative curriculum.


Our curriculum is designed to: identify children’s prior learning; provide engaging learning experiences; encourage the children to develop interpersonal skills; build resilience and become innovative, critical thinkers.


We believe strongly in the importance of supporting the development of children’s communication and therefore provide a wealth of opportunities in collaborative work, public speaking, presenting and performance. At Emmer Green, the children gain both confidence and experience in these fields.


Learning is inspiring with a cross curriculum approach. Our aim is to ignite a thirst for knowledge. We believe this leads to the children initiating their own research and self-learning to gain a deeper understanding and expertise.


An emphasis on strength of community and inclusivity forms a collaborative learning environment, with teachers leading by example. Parents engage with their children’s learning and excellent parent –teacher interaction enhances this.


Our approach to the curriculum includes compliance with the Equality Act and SEN/Disability regulations. These are detailed within our SEN policies which can be found on our Inclusion page.


Children leave Emmer Green Primary with a strong sense of belonging to a caring community where they have gained the skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, interact effectively, and essentially become lifelong learners.
