Creative and PSHE Curriculum

Statement of Curriculum Intent

At Hazel Grove Primary School we strongly believe that it is our responsibility to prepare our pupils with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will help them become successful, happy and confident learners and citizens; we aim to inspire our pupils so that they believe that they can achieve.

The Hazel Grove Primary Curriculum reflects our school context and values and is intended to: recognise and build on children’s previous learning; embed key knowledge; allow children to practise and develop a range of skills; be creative and instill a sense of self-belief, encouraging them to challenge themselves and each other.

Through a variety of learning experiences, we aim to provide opportunities for the pupils to develop independence, resilience and to work within a culture that embraces challenge for all. We believe children need to be fully engaged in the learning process so we provide an exciting curriculum based on first hand learning experiences.

‘Learn Together, Learn Forever’

Every child in our school is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. As part of our school curriculum, we have identified four values – elements that are integral to our school ethos and prepare children for the world we know and a world yet to be discovered. These are:

We teach our children how to safeguard themselves through our PSHE curriculum, and have linked the PREVENT agenda to our curriculum to enable our children to make informed choices around how to be a good citizen and demonstrate good British values. For further information about your child’s curriculum, please contact your child’s teacher. Please see below for more detailed information, hard copies of these are available from the school office:
