Why is our Curriculum unique?

What is Unique about the Curriculum at Etwall Primary School?
The ethos that comes through from staff, children, parents and the wider community. I am always proud of working in this school and how inclusive we are, how much we genuinely care about each other, go above and beyond to help each other out and make our school a caring and happy environment to be in. This comes through not only in curriculum time but in all areas of school life and the wider community. All of this means that children leave our school as well rounded, brilliant citizens.

We like learning because it is fun as we have nice activities, as well as making learning choices if we are finished with an activity.

As a parent, I appreciate the additional support given to my child to help them with areas they are struggling in. Teamwork from the staff is evident in the support given both during the lockdowns and as children are 'catching up'. Etwall is a caring school that recognises that children learn best when they are safe and happy. 
The library is a beautiful room! We like that we have the opportunity to use the library at lunchtime. We like that there is no time limit on when we have to return the books we borrow.

The cross curricular approach to learning. The children are really embraced in their wider curriculum topics as this is covered through a range of subjects to provide multiple learning opportunities.

Real teamwork has been achieved by all teaching staff at Etwall School with innovative ideas to achieve curriculum delivery during the covid outbreak.  All staff throughout the school have performed way beyond any expectations.   Helping each other in any way, proves what a strong united staff is at Etwall Primary school with the overall aim of keeping children safe, happy and attending school.
We look after trees and plants, have lots of areas to play like the playground, the field and the forest schools area and we keep tidy by picking up our rubbish.

Our community- how we support one another and how we support children pastorally.
The forest school and outdoor learning- the areas have really been developed to support areas of the curriculum.
We listen to pupils and use their ideas to ensure their learning meets their needs and is meaningful to them.
When we make decisions, we always have the children in mind. They are always at the centre of what we do. This ensures the children have impactful learning opportunities.
