Frimley Curriculum

At Frimley we believe that creativity is more than just being good at art or music; it is a way of working, thinking and being that inspires us in whatever we do.  It is this idea that is embodied in our school motto ‘Learning Together We Grow’.

Through our curriculum we aim to discover and release every child’s creativity. To fulfil these aims we have developed a curriculum model whereby the core skills needed to make progress in each subject are embedded within a range of themed studies.

Each year group explores a variety of engaging topics over the course of a year, starting with a ‘wow lesson’ to enthuse the pupils about the study ahead and a ‘fantastic finish’ to the theme. This cross-curricular and child-centred curriculum allows for excited and enthusiastic thinkers, with enquiry and exploration being at the heart of learning.

Our approach encourages children to be open-minded, to think and work independently and collaboratively, to problem solve and be able to communicate effectively.

Curriculum Drivers
Our curriculum is based upon the underpinning rationale that we want to create lifelong learners who have the basic skills to succeed at secondary school and in life. The school has chosen 4 drivers:

  • Enterprise – developing the ability to solve problems and think creatively, including links with business to develop children’s ability to succeed in the world of work both locally and globally.
  • Wellbeing – to be able to understand how to care for themselves and develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding.
  • Learning to Learn – developing the children’s ability to be resourceful, resilient, reciprocal and reflective in all that they do. This links with the BLP focus across the whole school.
  • The wider world – developing the children’s understanding of the different communities in which they live (local, national, international); promoting the British values of democracy, liberty, respect and tolerance; furthering understanding of the needs of the environment and sustainability issues.
