Curriculum Overview

At Edgware, we are committed to delivering an exciting and engaging curriculum.

Our curriculum has been developed to meet the needs of all our learners. We strive to engage our children through an exciting curriculum which inspires children to develop a passion for learning, independence, resilience and perseverance to learn more. We weave speciality weeks across the year which focus on developing a range of key skills and knowledge and enhance children's learning further. We also plan trips, events in school and a wide range of visitors. We work closely with our partnership (3 other schools locally) and with local secondary schools to make sure that children receive breadth and depth across each year group.

We place a high emphasis on basic skills and as a result our children achieve well. We aim to produce well-rounded children who care about each other and who want to achieve their full potential.

We actively promote our school’s core values alongside the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for others, such as those with different faiths and beliefs.

We work from and develop the National Curriculum to meet our children's needs. We also build on a range of thinking skills and build on children’s interests. We try to use a range of thinking tools to encourage independent learning and thinking. Some of these include: solving problems, making decisions, asking questions, constructing plans, evaluating ideas and organising information.

We have also developed many key links with our local community. We have links with other schools, places of worship, libraries, banks, local shops, MPs, the Mayor for Barnet and the emergency services. We are also developing links with international communities as well.

Please look at our 'Curriculum at Edgware' document and our 'Overview document' which has all our topics for each year group.

If you have any questions about what your child is learning at school do not hesitate to arrange a time to discuss it further with your child’s teacher.
