All pupils at GNSA Primary have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, differentiated to meet individual needs. We have used the National Curriculum as a starting point to produce our very own bespoke, themed curriculum throughout the school. The broader curriculum promotes spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at school and prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Our Curriculum Vision below was put together by the staff and the pupils in September 2017 so that we could better plan a provision towards a goal that would enable our pupils to achieve excellence in all that they do. This curriculum vision was developed with our school ‘SHARE values’ in mind: Service to others, Humility, Achievement, Respect and Equality.
To provide a creative, inclusive, challenging and real-world curriculum that inspires future thinkers, innovators and problem solvers in a captivating environment that stimulates and supports high quality teaching and learning in range of subjects.
We pride ourselves on enriching the curriculum with first hand experiences, visits and visitors. In this way our pupils gain knowledge of the world around them, grow in confidence and are able to make real life links to the topics that they are learning about.
After School Club Provision
In addition to the main curriculum, we also offer pupils the opportunity to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities outside normal school hours. These clubs help to broaden pupils experiences, are fun and some specifically support academic learning. Clubs include: Rugby, Bhangra, Football, Gardening club, Cricket and many others.
As an academy we actively promote Community Cohesion. Within the academy we encourage all our pupils, staff, governors and parents to share a common vision and experience a sense of belonging. We work closely with Guru Nanak Sikh Academy Secondary and other local schools to enable our pupils to work alongside people from other faiths and cultures and link with schools in India and Africa, to add an international dimension to our school. We aim to equip pupils to ultimately live and thrive alongside people from different backgrounds. We actively promote opportunities for interaction between young people from different backgrounds.
