Curriculum Statement 2018-19
Our school welcomes all children into a caring, Christian community where each child matters, and is valued for their individuality. We embrace children from all cultures and faiths, and those with no religious beliefs. We foster kindness, empathy for others, tolerance, a clear understanding of right and wrong whilst together sharing the joy of learning.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum. Staff and Governors at Great Kimble School are passionately committed to sharing the joy of learning and ensuring that all children have a wonderful start to their school life. The school motto Love, Learn, Live was chosen by the children and we hope encompasses this aim. The school judges its curriculum to be outstanding, as it takes into account what the children would like to learn. A variety of methods are used to ensure the curriculum is imaginative, including special weeks, visits and visitors. Integrated into our children's learning is the development and use of all aspects of a growth mindset. This enables our children to be determined and resilient learners and to have high motivation to continue even when learning is challenging. We strongly believe that our exciting curriculum leads to high academic achievements as well as excellent behaviour, attendance and attitudes to learning.
