Our Golden Threads

Alongside a rich diet of carefully selected powerful knowledge, we want our children to leave Carrington with a deep understanding of 3 key concepts.

Democracy at Carrington

Diversity at Carrington

Sustainability at Carrington

Our ‘Golden Threads’ are woven through the curriculum and are revisited, remembered and built upon in every year across a range of subjects. These concepts bring coherence to the curriculum, demonstrate to children the interrelatedness of ideas and guide decisions around curriculum content. The Golden Threads were selected specifically for our unique children and their community.

Golden Threads are deliberately mapped across the curriculum so that teachers can ask children what they remember about a concept from previous years. Children will have the opportunity to explore concept thread in multiple, novel contexts, allowing them to journey from shallow to deeper understanding.
