The curriculum at Pear Tree Community Junior School will provide our learners with the knowledge, vocabulary, skills and character traits that they will need to succeed in education and beyond. At the heart of our curriculum are the children themselves, ensuring they become confident learners, who are ready, respectful and responsible members of society. We are passionate about closing the knowledge gap and offering our children engaging opportunities that they will remember for many years to come.
Every day in every lesson, children at Pear Tree are immersed in vocabulary and discussion, which gives them the academic and social language that they need to be successful, literate and numerate. The well-sequenced and inclusive curriculum, enriched by high-quality literature, key knowledge and skills, will encourage children to achieve their best at every opportunity. We value the individuality of every child and support them to access the curriculum, through evidence-based teaching and learning practice. This provides them with the tools to succeed in later life
Opportunities to reflect and retrieve are key parts of our curriculum, allowing our children the time and space to digest their learning and make links to what they have previously learnt. Enrichment activities and new experiences are regularly provided for our children, which will further support their knowledge and understanding as well as their personal development. Children are encouraged to take pride in who they are and where they come from, while being respectful of other people’s opinions, faiths, cultures and beliefs.
Our curriculum does not put a lid on our learners: it is vocabulary-rich, engaging, relevant, inclusive and allows all of our children to grow and flourish in ways that they never knew they could.
