Curriculum Information


We believe that learning is an enjoyable, lifelong process through which everyone can achieve and exceed their expectations.  We have tried to design a curriculum to ensure that learners develop confidence, have an enquiring attitude, are increasingly independent learners and are willing to take risks. We strongly endorse a broad and balanced curriculum linking to our vision and values.


It includes not only the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum, focusing on the basic entitlement for each subject area, but also extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the children’s experiences.  We aspire for the children of the Hollybrook Schools to grow into positive, resilient learners, who are responsible and respectful of others, can work and co-operate with others while at the same time developing their knowledge and skills, in order to have high aspirations.


The school monitors and evaluates its effectiveness in providing an appropriate curriculum for pupils of all backgrounds. Each area of the curriculum is planned to incorporate the principles of equality and promotes positive attitudes to diversity. All subjects contribute to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils. Adaptations to the curriculum or resources, and extra support is made available to pupils with disabilities to enable them to have inclusive access to the whole curriculum, school activities and learning experiences.


The content of the curriculum reflects and values diversity. It encourages staff and pupils to explore bias and to challenge prejudice and stereotypical ideals exhibited in language, behaviour, and attitudes which might limit children’s achievement. Extra-curricular activities and special events cater for the interests and capabilities of all pupils and take account of parental concerns related to religion and culture. Some funding is made available where possible to enable disadvantaged children to participate in extra-curricular activities.
