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 PSHE

PSHE nurtures and develops every child as an individual. The curriculum is rooted in driving personal development by teaching our children the qualities, skills and attributes needed to succeed as aspirational individuals, family members and citizens. Children are provided with the tools to develop their personal identities and confidence and to protect and enhance their wellbeing, preparing them for life: now and in the future.

As the world becomes increasingly knowledgeable and accepting of important subject matter such as mental wellbeing, diversity, identity and the climate crisis, it is clear our children have the potential to be the most inclusive and proactive generation yet. Through a wide breadth of activities and experiences, the PSHE curriculum provides our children with the knowledge, understanding and emotional intelligence needed to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s everchanging society.

We believe in championing democracy and empowering our pupils to use their voices. Children are encouraged to utitilise their passions and empathetic skills to enrich their community and the wider world. Through oracy and action, children learn to take pride in being respectful, inclusive individuals with a understanding and appreciation of protected characteristics.
