Curriculum Overview(3)


Our fundamental belief at Newby is that our role as Educators is to ensure children are ready for the future. Whilst academic success plays a part in this, we passionately believe that life skills are as important, if not more so. Our curriculum is designed to create future leaders who are kind, confident and successful. Leaders of themselves, leaders of their community and leaders of the world. 

Decisions we make, including how we have designed the curriculum, are underpinned by research - all staff have a strong understanding of the 'why' that sits at the core of what we do. 


We also believe that staff should be equipped to deliver the curriculum - a lot of professional development time is given to the 'how' of pedagogy both as a general topic and also in specific subjects. 

Clear structures and teaching sequences underpin the teaching of Reading, Writing and Maths. The wider curriculum is taught through a sustained shared thinking pedagogy which encourages children to become thinkers; asking questions, taking the lead and presenting what they've learnt in unique and creative ways.
