Curriculum


At Geoffrey Field Junior School we believe our role is to support and enable our pupils to be the best they can be and to become life-long learners with a belief that they can achieve anything they
choose to now and in the future. We are proud that our curriculum is broad – we believe that
learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom and so offer our pupils a wealth of opportunities to
learn within and beyond the school day.

Our curriculum aims to develop children who:

  • Have secure age expected skills
  • Are free thinkers
  • Relish new challenges and experiences
  • Show resilience and perseverance when mastering new skills
  • Have an understanding of the world beyond their local community
  • Believe that they have a part to play in making their school and their local community a
    great place to be

Highlights of our curriculum:

  • Experiential learning providing pupils with first hand experiences that make their learning
    real and relevant
  • Cross curricular links between subjects which enable pupils to make connections and see the
    relevance of learning from one lesson to the next
  • A literacy curriculum which enables our pupils to develop secure age expected skills in
    reading and writing through use of film, drama, real life contexts, cross curricular work as
    well as exciting texts
  • Singapore Maths with a focus on developing deep mathematical understanding and problem
    solving skills
  • Opportunities for peer teaching such as our Y6 and Y4 buddy reading programme
  • Specialist music and sports teaching
  • Geoffrey Field University sessions which offer our pupils an opportunity to deepen their
    learning or develop a new skill
  • Our wide ranging extra-curricular clubs
