'Highest Quality learning for all'

At Cranmere, we are committed to following the programmes of study as required by the National Curriculum. We aim for all of our children to develop as literate, numerate and technologically competent individuals.  Through our 6Rs (reflective, resourceful, respectful, resilient, responsible and reasoning) we teach children how to be independent and collaborative learners, enabling them to develop learning skills and behaviours that will help them to grow in their education and personal life. Our curriculum supports the development of moral responsibility so that children understand that they play an integral role within our school and wider community.  They quickly become aware that they are part of a culturally diverse wider world and that they have have an important part to play in this as well as gain a sense of responsibility towards our world and its future. We strive to support pupils to live their lives well and become valuable and responsible citizens.

We are committed to delivering a rich and creative curriculum through a combination of thematic studies and discrete subject teaching. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and wide enough for children to experience a range of subjects and themes within the appropriate limits of their development and maturity. It is also balanced in terms of appropriate depth, range and time allowed. Subjects are cross curricular as much as possible to make the learning relevant, fun  and coherent in order to help make connections in their learning. Our pupils can then apply a broad range of knowledge, skills and understanding to other aspects of learning. ross-curricular links are planned for without losing focus of discrete knowledge and skills. This approach enables pupils to realise their potential not just in maths and literacy, but in all areas of learning.

The curriculum is taught using a range of styles and learning tools, including visual, kinaesthetic and auditory resources. To ensure children engage fully with their learning, practical activities are planned whenever possible and the curriculum is enriched by workshops, educational visits and visitors, making learning stimulating, memorable and enjoyable. Children learn in different ways and at different rates and teachers take into account how diverse our learners are.

Our creative approach to learning means some subjects are taught through a topic and some are covered as discrete subjects. This enables us to ensure balance and progression across the school. Our curriculum is supported by carefully chosen learning opportunities and educational visits. Through our curriculum, we also promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical, mental and emotional development of our pupils. We encourage our children to aspire and be the very best they can be and attain the highest personal achievements they can.
