Curriculum Intent

At Paganel our curriculum aims to provide opportunities for our children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.

We endeavour to nurture the personal, social and emotional development of our children alongside progressing their academic skills through the offer of a broad and balanced curriculum. In our ‘Pursuit of Greatness’ we embrace growth mindset and encourage our children to learn from their mistakes and build on successes.

At Paganel we want to support each child to become a curious, emotionally literate, resilient, reflective and adaptable young person who has a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.

At Paganel our aim is for the curriculum to provide opportunities for children to:

  • Activate prior knowledge and create links between ideas.
  • Develop the confidence to question and challenge.
  • Think more deeply and build on knowledge and skills.
  • Express and experience learning in a variety ways.
  • Develop and broaden use of vocabulary to communicate.

Know how to live healthy lifestyles both physically and mentally.

The core values of respect, enquiry and perseverance underpin all areas of our curriculum and promote inclusivity and equality to establish a school community where all members are of equal worth and differences are celebrated.

We hope that all children will be inspired and motivated to actively participate in the curriculum; experiencing enjoyment and leaving Paganel Primary School with the confidence and character to meet the challenges of an ever changing world.
