The curriculum at Bank End and Hunningley Primary Schools aims to prepare children in understanding the world around them and prepare them for the next stage of their education. We want our pupils to be well-rounded members of society with strong morals, emotional intelligence and integrity. The three drivers for our Curriculum are: ‘Powerful Knowledge’, ‘Education with Character’ and ‘The Best From Everyone’.
The design of our wider curriculum is based on the research findings of cognitive science based on metacognition. By the time learners are ready for Year 7, they will have mastered a range of both procedural knowledge (skills) and factual knowledge through repeated low stakes quizzing; opportunities to deliberately practise and careful planning for progression and depth.

The Best in Everyone
