Benton Dene Primary School Curriculum

At Benton Dene Primary School we pride ourselves on our outstanding curriculum, which helps all children to succeed in their academic and personal development through quality first teaching. Working together with parents and governors, our dedicated team of staff share high expectations for our children to achieve to the best of their abilities, both within the classroom and beyond. We create a love of learning by challenging every child with an ambitious broad and balanced curriculum brought to life by inspiring and innovative teaching and delivered with a passion for teaching and learning. All learners are supported in their journey through school within a happy, stimulating and inclusive environment.

We deliver a skills based curriculum that helps pupils to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding in line with the statutory requirements set out by the National Curriculum, but also customise our curriculum to capitalise on the experiences and backgrounds of our pupils. We place particular emphasis on the core skills of English and Maths, as we believe this opens up the rest of the curriculum to our pupils. In addition to this, we provide a rich PE provision. We believe that this inspires teamwork, reliance and dedication. Our commitment is to guide our children to help them become confident, successful learners and reach their potential in a diverse world.

Our highly skilled and determined staff believe that is the fundamental right of each child to receive a good education. They plan their differentiated curriculum content to provide breadth and opportunities for all pupils. We place a great deal of importance upon exposing children to a variety of experiences and making learning 'real' through regular visits, visitors, artefacts and multi-media stimulus to engage pupils' interest and inspire meaningful learning. Our curriculum content is all underpinned by an unwavering commitment to lifting the aspirations and aims of pupils by embedding the fundamental British Values and the development of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding to enable them to make positive contributions in our rich and varied society.
