The Curriculum at Southbourne Junior School

Our curriculum is underpinned by our school ethos, vision and values of P.R.I.D.E., which are embedded across the school community. 

The learning is purposeful and relevant to our pupils with a clear and connected story between subjects, whilst ensuring the basic skills of maths, reading and writing are integral and at the heart of learning. We provide inspiring and inclusive high quality learning experiences, full of opportunities and rich experiences. 

In this diverse multicultural society and complex world collaboration is encouraged and everyone is valued as we help to develop responsible citizens, caring for the world around us.We encourage pupils to grow an enquiring mind, with ambition and high aspirations, developing a passion for lifelong learning in this digital age.

Our curriculum allows children to make mistakes and take risks in order to prepare them to tackle barriers and challenges for their future adult life. By encouraging good physical health and mental wellbeing we foster a holistic approach, preparing our pupils for the next chapter.

As our aspirational learners leave us we want our pupils to show the confidence and ability to experience different opportunities, seeking life adventures, whilst developing positive relationships with people from all walks of life.

The summer term 2 learning journeys are on a whole school four year cycle.
