Our Curriculum

We introduced a new design to our curriculum in September 2020.

Intent

At Brooke Primary Academy we believe that children learn best when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum is based on termly themes that provide children with relevant links across a range subjects. We plan exciting opportunities that spark children’s enthusiasm and help them to develop a love of learning. ​

We recognise the importance that English and Maths play in equipping our children to be life-long learners. However, all areas of the curriculum are of equal importance and provide all of our children with an opportunity to shine. Our children receive a broad and balanced curriculum that is effectively sequenced and ambitious. This helps them to develop as confident, independent learners with high aspirations. ​

We are committed to developing our children’s understanding and knowledge of where they live and their place in the world. We want our children to be proud of where they come from, to respect their community, but also to see that there is life beyond Thorne. ​
When our children leave Brooke they will be equipped for the next stage of their educational journey. They will have received an education that has prepared them for life in the 21st century and they will be developing as kind, tolerant and considerate members of society.​
