At Chieveley, our whole curriculum is designed to promote our Futureproof vision. That means we strive to equip children with the knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive in any future.
As a school, we hold the following clear and simple beliefs about education (explained in more detail here):
Our subject leaders then carefully apply these principles to their own subjects in order to give our children a consistency of approach and opportunity across our whole curriculum. Metacognition (learning to learn) is also woven throughout all of our learning opportunities. We encourage the 5Rs - risk-taking, resilience, reflection, resourcefulness and relationships - in all our subject areas and treat metacognition as a lifelong skill that is as important as reading or writing. All of the above principles, twinned with metacognition, help our curriculum to develop well-rounded, futureproof children. You can find out more information about each subject area on their subject page below. For more information about how our curriculum changed from September 2023, please see the document below, which was presented to parents in an information session on Wednesday 4 October.
At Chieveley, our classes are named after British birds! As a rule-of-thumb...the bigger the bird, the bigger the children!
On your child's class page (below) you will be able to find class-specific information such as welcome letters from their teachers and termly overviews.
