All children deserve the best possible education. At New Haw our curriculum aims to inspire our pupils’ curiosity about the world around them whilst also given them a secure and broad foundation of knowledge in all subject areas. This ensures that they are set up for success in the next stage of their education and beyond.  Our curriculum is designed to enrich the lives of our pupils, building upon their past experiences and exposing them to new opportunities.  We have high academic ambition for all pupils, rooted in our solid consensus of the knowledge and skills pupils need in order to take advantage of opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

We want to create a level playing field for all our children no matter what their starting points and the main vehicle we use to do this is a strong curriculum which has been developed by the entire staff in consultation with parents, governors and children over the last 3 years.

At New Haw we believe the philosophy that “The quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers.” (McKinsey 2007) and the same principle can be applied to our curriculum.  Therefore, in addition to developing a sequenced and cumulative curriculum, we are constantly looking at how the expertise of our teachers can be further enhanced.

The curriculum at New Haw is planned, purposeful and with clear intent.  It has been sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and towards clearly defined and points.  Each subject is unique, and includes its own substantive and disciplinary knowledge.  Substantive knowledge relates to the core facts, ideas and concepts which are central to a subject. Disciplinary knowledge, on the other hand, relates to how scholars and academics within each subject (or discipline) arrive at this knowledge. Our curriculum ensures that all pupils carefully build a comprehensive understanding of both.

At New Haw we are committed to ensuring that our pupils access the richest possible range of experiences during their time here.  Enrichment opportunites are not only designed to support the children’s academic progress, but also to broaden their horizons, develop their cultural capital and improve their self-esteem and well-being.

 If you would like more information about the curriculum than is found on our website, please do not hesitate to speak to the school office or to your child's class teacher.
