Find out why so many schools are choosing our new curriculum…
- The curriculum design blueprint for our ‘Learning Means the World’ Curriculum starts with learning, not with coverage.
This curriculum wasn’t constructed from a list of objectives or tick boxes. It isn’t focused on coverage but puts learning at the centre and builds out from there. Coverage of the National Curriculum can be guaranteed for those schools needing that assurance, but it no longer drives the curriculum design.
- It is highly relevant and engaging.
‘Learning Means the World’ is a highly relevant curriculum designed to help pupils acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values needed to thrive and succeed in the 21st century. Are we best preparing young people for life in this rapidly changing 21st century landscape, when what is actually prioritised in primary schools is often irrelevant propositional knowledge, with a mere nod to the real-world issues directly affecting our children’s lives?
- This curriculum is proven to change hearts as well as minds.
This curriculum has been proven to be transformational in both the hearts and minds of teachers and students globally. We want attitudes and priorities to be re-aligned with what is really important, in order to impact our futures in a positive way.
- The ‘Learning Means the World’ Curriculum helps develop more globally aware, educated citizens.
This curriculum brings a much-needed global perspective into the classroom. In order to rise to the current and other worldwide challenges, information needs to be shared globally to have a local impact. What a doctor discovers in Italy about this virus one day may well save lives in the US the next day. We need our children to understand and value the importance of global co-operation and international viewpoints.
- There is a greater emphasis on life skills.
Feedback from schools using ‘Learning Means the World’ has overwhelmingly pointed towards an increased development of life skills, leading to greater pupil independence, resilience and adaptability.
- The eight strands of progression woven into the ‘Learning Means the World’ Curriculum ensure cohesion and progression in learning
Sequencing, progression and coherence is at the heart of this curriculum, from the 4Cs – Communication, Conflict, Conservation, Culture – Skills Ladder and Knowledge Building, right the way through to the Learning Pathways, Concept Flows, Learning Sequences, Learning Lexicon and Time Machine resources.
- There is equal emphasis on both knowledge building and skills development.
In ‘Learning Means the World’, we have dovetailed our skills and knowledge to create a balanced curriculum, with robust and challenging learning experience for all students.
