Our Curriculum: Intent


At Holbrook we seek to provide exciting learning opportunities for children to foster enthusiasm for learning. We believe that the curriculum should help children to experience 'life in all its fullness’ so our thematic curriculum includes regular opportunities for enrichment including visits, theatre trips, visitors into school and outdoor learning in our wonderful setting. We aim for a curriculum which is broad and rich to help children find their talents and passions. We have designed and personalised our curriculum to ensure that all children leave us with a wide foundation of knowledge, the necessary skills to be successful, lifelong learners and a passionate curiosity about the world around them. A focus on 'cultural capital' in every subject area helps us to ensure that children experience the best of what has been thought, said, achieved or created.


Our curriculum is based on these key principles:


  • A commitment to academic excellence
  • Increasing children’s cultural capital through rich learning experiences
  • Celebrating and encouraging creativity
  • Teaching the necessary skills and attitudes for effective, sustained, independent learning
