Trewirgie Junior School


Curriculum INTENT

At Trewirgie we have designed our own unique and creative approach to learning to inspire every child to want to learn, and through this develop the skills and passions to achieve their potential. The curriculum is driven by purposeful learning that ensures that their learning has real relevance to themselves and the wider world. It enables them to explore real life issues, develop a social conscience and through this contribute towards changing this. This is fundamental to the way the curriculum has been designed and shaped.


Each term children study a new project that is driven by an essential question. Examples of these include: Does a winner always come first? Does every child have a voice across the world? Animal cruelty; who cares?


This culminates in a legacy outcome where children hope to ‘make a difference, have an impact and leave a legacy’. This approach to learning means that children take a real ownership for their learning. The impact of this is that ‘learning sticks’, is durable and lasting.


The curriculum is driven by the school’s 6 core values: Amazement, Community, Equality, Self-Motivation, Enquiry and Reflection.Click here to read the school's Curriculum Vision and Values document.
