Glade Hill Curriculum

Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

Curriculum statement – September 2014


The curriculum is well planned to respond to pupils’ interests and broaden their experiences with lots of opportunities to take part in activities outside of the school day…”  OFSTED June 2013


Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School is committed to meeting the requirements of the new primary curriculum from September 2014.  We have updated our long term framework to reflect the content and challenge of the new curriculum.


The Glade Hill curriculum has also been designed to meet the needs of the pupils in the Bestwood community.  These needs are reflected in our curriculum aims. The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners and will be regularly updated to reflect the changing requirements and interests of individual cohorts and groups of children.


Our curriculum incorporates a thematic approach alongside a mastery style for English and Mathematics.  The curriculum will be rich, relevant, broad and balanced.  We are dedicated to providing enrichment opportunities including residential visits, musical instrument tuition and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.  The content will be exciting and inspire a lifelong love of learning.


We are committed to preparing our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life in modern Britain.  We have identified a set of skills and attributes at the heart of our curriculum.  These make up the acronym SPARKLE.  At Glade Hill we are Golden and we SPARKLE.


We are:


  • Self-motivated
  • Polite
  • Ambitious
  • Resilient
  • Kind and Caring
