Our curriculum is based on the only safe assumption that a teacher can make: that the pupil might go on to study the subject at university, require particular subject knowledge in their future career, or need particular subject knowledge or skills to enable them to be active members of society. As a result, our curriculum has been designed to be fit for that purpose.
At Moor Park we follow an ambitious curriculum that goes beyond the scope of the National Curriculum to allow pupils to understand their world. We want our pupils to follow their natural curiosity to explain the questions we know they have: Why does the landscape look like that? Why don’t we have peace in the middle East? What do Christians believe? Why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?
We feel that a knowledge rich curriculum provides our pupils with the best tools to answer their questions. A knowledge rich curriculum is not a curriculum based on trivia – it provides our pupils with the information that allows them to articulate an explanation in their own words.
We teach discrete subject disciplines which allows us to develop disciplined thinking rather than promoting woolly cross curricular links.
