Our Curriculum

Our inclusive curriculum, designed and planned each and every year by Class teachers and Senior Leaders, is bespoke to the pupils of Brook.

We look at our cohorts, what motivates them and the context and create a curriculum which is bespoke to the needs of our learners, providing the opportunities for each pupil to recognise and fulfil their potential and abilities through all elements of the National Curriculum and beyond.

Underpinning our curriculum, you will find the roots: providing a stable base for our core values of; Care, Creativity and Courage. Our roots support our vision, ensuring that our children are part of an adventurous and caring family with the courage to meet challenges and learn creativity in our outstanding natural environment.

The Curriculum is built around the roots.  The Subjects we teach, like the branches of a tree, are nourished by the roots. 

Each subject has been carefully mapped (see below) to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum, as well as coverage of additional knowledge and skills for our pupils. Our curriculum is designed to be taught in a subject specific way. Through this method, our pupils learn what it is to be a historian, a scientist, an artist and so on. We make links to other subjects if the topic lends itself to this, but not if the link is tenuous as this can cause gaps in knowledge and skills.

Our curriculum is provided in three ways:
