Curriculum Overview

Curriculum at Norwood

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to flourish. We aim to help them achieve that through a creative, bold and courageous curriculum which is underpinned by our school ethos, vision and values -that of recognising that each child is unique and by providing them with a curriculum that is inspirational, creative and caring whilst also providing challenge for all. We believe the impact of such a curriculum will prepare our children for the future in a world where technology is constantly changing. Our curriculum not only aims to provide children with the skills that they need now, but also the ability to be flexible, resourceful, reflective and resilient, helping them to adapt and problem solve as they grow up in an ever changing world.
