All staff at Eastcote are committed to providing pupils with an exciting and flexible curriculum which is developed around our pupils interests and needs. Everyone is involved in it’s development with the shared aim of ensuring pupils at Eastcote are independent thinking, enthusiastic and resilient learners.
Our core values, Aspire, Learn, Love are at the centre of the curriculum and guide the school in it’s daily activities and long term planning.
Our thematic cross-phrase curriculum means that children can make real connections in their learning. Pupils and teachers enjoy immersing themselves in their new topics; creating rich, memorable experiences. Yearly, the curriculum is reviewed and updated taking on board pupils’ and teachers’ ideas whilst ensuring a clear progression in subject knowledge and skills are maintained.
Key to our curriculum is our focus on developing the whole person and promoting the fundamental British values. One way we facilitate this is through our enrichment activities, such as enterprise week, book days, school trips, visitors, moral debate assemblies and multi-cultural days which we evaluate yearly. This year we have decided to include new events such as arts day and committees day.
We pride ourselves on our confident and articulate pupils. We believe that our Kid’s Committees (which every Key Stage 2 pupil is a member of); our house system; our peer mentoring , playground buddies and PE leadership programmes all feed into creating strong pupil voice at Eastcote
