The Why:

Carrington’s Vision for the Whole-School Curriculum

Our unique children deserve an inclusive, holistic curriculum that shapes them as confident, inquisitive and proud individuals. At Carrington, children know that they matter, they are important and that they bring something to this world that no-one else can.

Through purposeful, broad and rich experiences, we aim for every child to leave us with an empowered voice and a life-long passion for learning, equipped with the skills to go on and be compassionate and active citizens both locally and beyond.

We believe in an ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum because children are empowered by knowing things. The specifics of what children learn matter and subject traditions are respected, providing the vital inspiration, challenge and confidence to determine their own future.

Carrington’s Vision for History

History will inspire children’s life-long curiosity to know more about the past, how it has shaped their lives and community and how it will shape their future. Pupils will have access to some of the best that has been thought and said from the most influential people in history, who have used their empowered voice to affect change.

History should belong to and include all of us; the curriculum will be representative of the amazing diversity of our school, ‘usualising’ the presence of different cultures from the start, engaging children in learning that is relevant to them and exploring historical periods through different lenses.

Children will learn to think like a historian; to ask perceptive questions, think critically, interpret sources and develop perspective and judgment; equipping them with the confidence and tools to become active, responsible global citizens.
