Our Curriculum

At Smawthorne Henry Moore, we aim to provide a broad, balanced and knowledge based curriculum to engage our children in all subject areas. Our subject leaders work hard to provide a curriculum which is knowledge rich with a focus on progression and sequential learning. The Senior Leadership team have undertaken a review of the curriculum offer and are working to ensure that every subject promotes a love of learning through meaningful content in order to secure knowledge in children's long term memory. We aim to embed the learnt knowledge through offering wider, meaningful experiences in the form of visits to school and external visits. This forms a big part of #TheSmawthorneExperience.

Leaders are continually reviewing the curriculum offer and will, alongside Subject Leaders, monitor subjects to ensure that the curriculum intent is delivering a high standard of learning, consistently in all subjects across school. Pupil voice is at the centre of our monitoring and we are continually reviewing what is working well and what needs further development. Working with staff and pupils is central to our curriculum as we focus on our Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact.
