Curriculum

At Norwood we believe that every child matters and the curriculum is a powerful means of providing all children with good opportunities for enjoyment, achievement and promoting a love of learning and willingness to explore. It will develop their knowledge and skills, foster economic well being, improve learners’ health, keep them safe and help them make a positive contribution to the school and the community.

We use the National Curriculum as a starting point for a wide and varied learning experience for our children. It is further enriched with a range of visits and visitors every year. We are committed to developing the whole child. Our children will have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged.

The curriculum at Norwood is continually evolving according to the needs of our children and to the aspirations of the staff and community. We are continually reviewing and improving the curriculum we offer to our children to ensure that it will enable all learners to enjoy their education and that their learning, wherever possible, is fun.
