Glade Hill Curriculum

Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

Curriculum statement – September 2018




The Glade Hill Curriculum is designed to adhere to the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum whilst meeting the needs of the pupils and families in the Bestwood Community.   These needs are reflected  in our curriculum aims below.


The curriculum is  taught with the consideration of all learners and is regularly updated to reflect the changing requirements and interests of individual cohorts and groups of children.    The long term plans are below.


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:
