Goodwyn School aims to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills so they can achieve their true potential. The way our curriculum is designed and managed, together with our high expectations for all pupils, reflects these aims.
The English programme aims to develop children’s ability to express themselves creatively and imaginatively, and to become enthusiastic and critical readers, writers and speakers.
The Maths programme is based on the Abacus programme which has been combined with our Goodwyn School expectations to ensure a programme that is challenging and stimulating as well as providing clear guidance to extend more able learners.
In both English and Maths the programme is differentiated to accommodate individual learning needs as well as providing a secure basis for those pupils who choose to sit 7+ and 11+ exams.
In 2010 Goodwyn School decided to adopt the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) as our planned curriculum, for all areas other than English, Maths, Music, PE and RE. It was selected because it is a rigorous, learning focused curriculum that sets out to help teachers help children learn and develop academically, internationally and as people.
