The New Cutteslowe Curriculum 2023-2024
At Cutteslowe, we believe that learning is limitless. We strive to develop passionate, engaged, independent learners who are well prepared to make sense of the world around them and become active members of their local and global community.
Meeting the needs of our culturally diverse community we aim to provide an innovative, enquiry based, curriculum that is aspirational and offers rich learning experiences to all children.
Through a carefully crafted approach to learning each Subject Leader will identify knowledge and skills that will be taught progressively and developed throughout a child's journey at Cutteslowe. Our curriculum will focus on all aspects of a child’s development including physical and mental wellbeing, emotional literacy and communication skills.

At Cutteslowe we believe learning is limitless and we seek to harness a child’s natural curiosity to support their learning. There are 5 key priorities for our new curriculum:
- There is breadth and depth. Through exploration of the backgrounds of our pupils, our belief in high quality education and our school values we are developing a curriculum focused on Cutteslowe School and our children.
- The new curriculum will be challenging and inclusive. All children, regardless of background or ability, will be able to access and enjoy a broad range of learning activities focused on developing their skills and knowledge.
- There is real progression within each year and as children move up through the school. Learning is planned with the National Curriculum and will be sequenced to build skills and knowledge in the medium and long term.
- The development of long term knowledge and high level skills will be prioritised as children move through the school. This will include learning knowledge and skills in depth and then building on what a child knows to expand and extend their understanding.
- Knowledge organisers, alongside regular formal and informal assessment, will be used to establish learning expectations, measure progress and help to plan future learning.
