Curriculum Intent

Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum is designed to meet the high expectations of children, staff and parents.  Holystone is an area with a rich mining history.  It is surrounded by high levels of new development but also beautiful open spaces.  As such, we hope to use our environment to support our children's sense of community, both at local level and globally.  We want to equip our children with the skills and knowledge they need to make a positive impact on their future and the changing world around them.

Overall, at the heart of our curriculum are our core values, developed with the children, 'Resilience', 'Independence', 'Community' and 'Respect'.  We believe that these values, which we will embed throughout a child's journey through our school, will enable the children of Holystone to make a positive impact on the world.
