Curriculum Intent
At Hodnet Primary School, we endeavour to provide a broad and balanced, but flexible, curriculum which meets the needs of our children, and enables every child to fulfil their potential. We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our curriculum to the interests and needs of our children and involve the children in their own learning as much as possible. Our curriculum reflects our school aims for every child; encouraging positive relationships based upon mutual trust and respect whilst maintaining a ‘can do’ strive for success attitude. Our ambitious curriculum has been designed to follow the statutory requirements for all children from the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. We ensure that children have the opportunity to experience the curriculum and express themselves as an individual.

The key principles behind our curriculum design are based on these wishes for our children:

To be happy, respectful and kind

To be confident with a strong sense of self-belief

To be resilient

To be excited and inspired by learning

To be an independent learner and a creative thinker

To have high aspirations

To be creative

To have eyes open to a world beyond their immediate surroundings

To be an effective communicator

To have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed

EYFS principles

We aim for our children to be:

  • Mathematicians 
  • Authors
  • Scientists
  • Artists
  • Sculptors
  • Builders
  • Singers
  • Investigators
  • Researchers
  • Explorers

What is our Reggio Emilia themed approach?

We expose our children to enriching experiences, immersing them in progressive knowledge and skills and equipping them with personal characteristics to succeed in life. We know that all of our learners are inquisitive, constructive and have the ability to map their own learning path though creativity and discovery.
