Our Curriculum Intent

21 Feb 2023

Our vision for the Federation of Kirkby Malzeard and St Nicholas C of E Schools.
We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ John 10:10 and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’ Philippians 2:15; to have the courage to act with kindness, patience, love and peace in all the communities they serve in.
Our curriculum is based on a consideration of the contextual needs of our cohorts and families, our local context and government requirements, in addition to curriculum research; this has helped shape our vision and intent.
Our curriculum is a journey and never a finished article. It is reviewed at least annually to ensure it is still meeting the needs of our children in an ever changing world.
Our aspiration for our children has been framed into our 6 golden threads which we feel our children need to be able to do to ‘shine like stars’ and ‘live life in all its fullness’. This ensures the opportunities for these are always a focus within school, and throughout a child’s journey in school.  We want our children to:
Become life-long readers 
Be confident communicators
Be spiritually, mentally and physically healthy
Be creative
Be curious
Understand and embrace the wider world

Therefore these are the golden threads that run through our curriculum and on which our curriculum is planned around each half term.
