The Curriculum at Greenleaf

At Greenleaf, we believe every child deserves an holistic education.  Therefore, the curriculum at Greenleaf is not just about lessons; it encompasses all the learning experiences of a child.

We ensure that a Broad and Balanced Curriculum is offered to all our pupils, which comprises all the opportunities for learning.

These include:

  • Building on learning experiences gained outside of school
  • A formal programme of lessons in the timetable which are based on the National Curriculum.
  • A creative, dynamic and interactive teaching environment to stimulate individual learning
  • Extra-curricular activities i.e. Sports Clubs, Music Clubs, Art Club, Chess Club, Fun Club, Drama Club, School Shows etc.
  • Outside educational visits to enrich subjects being taught e.g. Visits to museums, art galleries, local market, Suntrap etc
  • Outside speakers e.g. School Nurse, Community Police Officer etc

  • A climate of relationships, attitudes, behaviour and overall quality of life established in the school community as a whole.

  • Opportunities to explore, understand and practise democracy and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

At Greenleaf, while  we place Literacy and Numeracy at the heart of all the learning, all the other subjects (Science, Geography, History, Computing, Design Technology, Art, PE, Music, PSHE and RE) are of equal importance.  They are not only taught discretely, but are also connected to work through topics which make the most of cross curricular links with other subject areas.  The children’s social, spiritual, moral and cultural development are umbrella themes across the curriculum.

Within our curriculum we allow for different elements of learning:

Knowledge: the factual content of what is being learned;

Concepts: generalised ideas which organise knowledge and experience and enable pupils to predict

Skills: e.g. communication, study, problem solving, thinking, physical and creative, numerical and interpersonal;

Attitudes: values and personal qualities.

Providing such a broad and balanced curriculum therefore gives our pupils access to the fullest possible understanding of the world in which they live.
