LEARNING TO BELONG, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE AND SUCCEED
THE CHESHAM Curriculum
At Chesham Primary School we want our children to develop a sense of belonging, belief in themselves, an understanding of the ways they can achieve and a knowledge of what it means to succeed.
We are passionate about delivering a broad and ambitious curriculum that develops thoughtful, resilient, and curious children. Well-being, self-esteem and social awareness are at the core of our offer. We believe that these drivers develop curiosity and confidence in our children and help them to acquire new skills and knowledge and resilience to face new challenges and possibilities.
Our well-being curriculum enables staff to tackle barriers to learning and raise aspirations for our children. We want them to be responsible and independent members of society with the desire to be life-long learners.
Every single child is given the opportunity to achieve their absolute best. Our curriculum, teaching and learning and nurturing environment ensures that each child achieves their personal best during their time with us regardless of their starting point. We deliver the curriculum in a way that captures children’s enthusiasm and generates excitement about learning. The diversity of our school population is reflected in the curriculum we deliver with opportunities for pupils to celebrate, share, and learn about different cultural and spiritual beliefs.
We strive to ensure that all our children are happy, healthy, and active and leave our school with the confidence and skills to become the best versions of themselves in all ways. We want them to belong, believe, achieve succeed.
To ensure our curriculum is delivered to the highest standard, we prioritise the development of teaching and learning and ensure that teachers have a sound subject knowledge. We ensure that children can read with fluency and understanding, which means they are able to access all subject areas. Each subject coordinator has mapped out the specific knowledge and skills pertinent to that subject and for each year group. Our programmes of study are sequential and build year on year. The children know which subject they are studying.
